The B+W 67mm Circular Polarizer MRC Filter helps to reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface. The light from the sun naturally becomes partially polarized due to reflecting off electrons in air molecules, causing the light to scatter into what appears as haze. A polarizing filter arranges, and filters, this directionally polarized light perpendicularly to the reflected light, allowing for the absorption of much of this light. This results in a noticeable reduction of glare and reflections from non-metallic surfaces and an increase in the saturation of skies and foliage.

A circular polarizer only differs from a linear polarizer in that it contains a quarter wave plane in addition to the linear polarizing filter. The addition of this quarter wave plane is to circularly polarize the linearly polarized light for the use of auto focus and exposure functions. Due to how the light is broken down and filtered with a linear polarizer, auto focus and exposure accuracy become skewed during use. When the light becomes circularly polarized, it permits the use of these functions.

The Multi-Resistant Coating (MRC) is both an anti-reflection coating as well as a protective surface. It helps to increase light transmission by reducing reflections, scattered light, and ghosting. Additionally, it offers greater protection to the filter substrate and stays cleaner for longer than uncoated filters.

B+W filters are constructed from high quality Schott glass for increased optical clarity and color fidelity. They feature a brass filter ring for durability as well as jamming prevention.

        Comments about B+W 67mm Circular Polarizer MRC Filter:

        Without a doubt, B+W makes very good quality products, and having purchased probably 20-30 of their filters, this is the first time that I was disappointed. Once the filter was cleaned it seems to be totally fine, but upon opening the box, the front glass was coated with an oily film covering 80% of the center. Due to the oily nature of the film, it was very difficult to remove safely and I used lens cleaner and three lens cleaning cloths before the process was finished.

                I specialize in sunsets. Red and green flares are a constant curse. This polarizing filter eliminates about 95% of them. Such a relief! Also crysyalizes colors so the blues become so vivid and true. all colors become crisp and solid, eliminating the faded bleached out look.

                        I kind of bought this filter by accident along with the 70-200mm f/4 lens. I already had a 67mm polarizer (uncoated). It is a very good filter, though, so I'm not too upset.

                        The filter is put together pretty well and seems more sturdy than my cheaper uncoated filter. Also, when I held the 2 filters side-by-side, I could see my reflection in the uncoated and not in this one. I'm not entirely sure what that means, but it demonstrates an obvious difference between multi-coated and uncoated.

                                          This filter does exactly what it's supposed to do. It functions well and feels solid. I have yet to see if it is worth the price, but so far I have nothing to complain about. The image quality is great.

                                            Good grief! What was I thinking? For the last twenty years, the polarizing filters I've used have come from less-expensive manufacturers (ie, cheaper filters)... they degraded image quality with inferior glass, they got stuck on the front of the lens because of the cheaper material the ring was made from, etc.

                                            No more of that - the brass ring on this B+W filter makes a noticeable difference right away, and the Schott glass is probably better than the glass in my actual lens (and it ain't a cheap lens, either)!

                                            Don't put cheap filters in front of expensive lenses - spend a few extra dollars up front and you will see it pay off in the quality of your images.

                                            I'll never again buy any filters other than B+W.

                                              Short of the Kaesemann version, this is probably the best polarizer you can get on the consumer market. Highly recommended both for optical quality and for operational details -- it resists dust well and the brass ring is very rugged. As expected, you need to be careful when cleaning, otherwise you will get scratches from debris pressed against the glass with a wiper. Blower brush is recommended for all but the nastiest stuff that gets on it.

                                                    Classic B+W quality. The thing I really appreciate about these multi-coated filters is the resistance to flare. Sure, with a telephoto with a good hood this is not as often an issue as with a wide-angle, but it is worth it over a cheaper filter IMO. Honestly I think in most situations it is difficult to tell a (single) less expensive filter from an expensive one from image quality, but after suffering flare issues with cheap filters I'm a B+W multi-coated filter fan. If you have quality lenses it is worth getting a quality filter (echoed by many on forums and reviews).
