Well-suited to outdoor and nature photography, the 105mm Landscape Circular Polarizer Filter from LEE Filters helps to reduce reflections and glare as well as increase the overall saturation of an image. This unique polarizer filter is also characterized by a slight warm bias that, in addition to increasing contrast in skies, also helps to enhance green, brown, and gold tones. It is compatible with the LEE 100mm system, via an optional 105mm accessory ring, and features a slimline profile to reduce the likelihood of vignetting on lenses as wide as 16-17mm.

A polarizing filter helps to reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface. This results in a noticeable increase in the saturation of skies and foliage, as well as clearer imagery when photographing in hazy conditions. A circular polarizer differs from a linear polarizer in that it supports full use of a camera's autofocus and auto exposure functions.

This filter is constructed from optical glass for maintained image quality and is set within an aluminum filter ring. Due to its slim profile, this filter does not have front threads for stacking additional filters.

Reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface.
Lessens haze in distant landscapes and provides more saturated, vivid colors.
Benefitting landscape photographers, this filter has a slightly warm bias to enhance Earth tones in addition to increasing overall saturation.
Strongest effect when used at a 90° from the sun.
Optical glass construction maintains image quality.
Low profile aluminum filter ring helps to reduce the likelihood of vignetting when used with wide-angle lenses.
When used in conjunction with the LEE 100mm holder system, vignetting will not occur with lenses as wide as 16-17mm when this filter is attached with the optional 105mm accessory ring and two filter slots are behind the filter. When mounted closer to the lens-either directly to the lens or with one rectangular filter slot-wider focal lengths may be used without vignetting.

    105mm Landscape Circular Polarizer Filter is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 36.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from One filter across collection of lenses Great filter system you can use across multiple lenses. Expensive, but you get what you pay for. As a professional, my products are more expensive than others in my area, but my customers use me because my work sets me apart from the others. Same thing with Lee filters. Before I switched to the Lee 100mm system, I carried multiple filters for every lens in my collection. That's expensive, too. This polarizing filter mounts on the outside of the Lee 100mm system and at 105mm is wide enough even my wide angle lens works. I do get a tiny bit of vignetting at 18mm, but vanishes at 20mm on the zoom lens

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally One filter for all lenses I recently lost a polarizer somehow on a shoot and decided that instead of carrying several sizes for 3 different lenses, I would buy the lee 105 Landscape Polarizer and use it on the Foundation Kit, which I already have. The initial outlay of money was more than replacing the filter I lost but I feel in the long run, that lee polarizer will be around for a long time. It adds a little warmth to the scene which I like in my landscapes which is easy to remove in post if you are shooting something that doesn't need it. The way it mounts to the foundation kit makes it easy to turn for adjustment. All in all, I have been happy with Lee's filters. The polarizer just makes it so easy to use with other filters.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from One polarizer to rule them all! I decided to not buy individual polarizers for my lenses and went with this massive polarizer for my LEE filter holder. One filter for all of my lenses. Very easy to control. It works well and you can control the polarization easily, even with its slimmer profile than the older LEE polarizer. The landscape polarizer is a must have for an outdoor photographer. Because of its slimmer profile it CAN be a little hard to take on and off to the filter holder. I know LEE recommends screwing it on/off with the filter holder in your hand and not when mounted to the camera. It can be a tight fit and every now and then you may need to lube the threads to help prevent the filter from locking into place. I already had it jam a little bit after a few uses so beware not to screw it on too tight!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for Landscape, but not Blue Scenes PROS: --Top of the line professional quality --Excellent image results --Warming filter beautifully enhances greens/yellows/golds in landscapes --Effectively does what it's supposed to do as a polariser --Good, sturdy construction --I have not found any bothersome vignetting at wide angles (down to 10mm with Canon 7D--1.6x crop factor) where it detracts from the aesthetic quality of the image (my personal opinion as a professional fine artist--drawings and paintings, but not a pro photographer yet). But if you're pedantic about vignetting, then read the other reviews about this issue as others have been bothered by it. CONS: --When shooting certain scenes where blue is the dominant color (sky, distant mountains, water), the warming filter sometimes **can** add an undesirable color cast and mutes the deep blues and makes them look a little muddy. Lee states this can be removed with software, but in all honesty, I don't think post production could ever completely remove the color cast and make it look like it was shot as if it never had that warming filter component to it (but I'm not an expert in post production). For some blue dominated scenes, you'd be better off using an untinted, normal polariser without the warming filter. ***SEE ATTACHED PHOTO of Cascade Canyon, Grand Tetons, USA, which I shot with a Lee ND grad filter and the Lee Landscape Polariser. This image was virtually untouched in post production, so this is very, very close to what my Canon 7D, Canon 10-18mm lens and Lee gear actually produced in the raw. This is an example of where the polariser brought out the shape of the clouds, took the glare off the water a bit, slightly enhanced the greens of the vegetation but did not detract from the deep blue of the sky. However, I am shooting somewhat into the sun. Not all scenes this dominated with blue will look this good***** --The thread is very thin, and when adjusting the polariser in the holder (to get the desired affect for the scene) it can sometimes tighten even further. There have been a few times where I was very worried I would never be able to get it out of the holder. I recommend twisting the polariser in the lefty loosy direction rather than the righty tighty direction when adjusting it for the scene. There are quite a number of threads, so even if you're twisting in the lefty loosy direction, you won't have to worry about it accidentally falling out, you'll know well before it comes out that it's starting to get loose. Better that than a polariser stuck in the filter holder indefinitely.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Vignettes below 20mm Despite the claim that this filter will not vignette with lenses as wide as 16 and 17mm, this filter starts vignetting just below 20mm on my Nikon 16-35 f4. I am using two filter slots in the Lee Filter holder. Outside of the claim that the filter will not vignette at 16 & 17mm, the polarizer is the quality you have come to expect from lee.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Optically great, mechanically annoying. Overall the filter is great and performs as expected for a Lee filter. I do find a few features (perhaps lack of?) annoying. The thinness is very nice but I don't find the filter easy to turn or manipulate. I would think a small nub or stem would be easy to accommodate to the outside bezel, similar to a winding watch, which would do the trick (imo) for rotating the filter. Perhaps this is sacrilegious to say. I have also noticed several annoyances with the threading. (1) It tends to unscrew when the polarizer is rotated to the right, (facing out from the back of the camera, which would be left if facing the front head on). (2) The ring can over-tighten too and (3) seems to be worse when it is cold (< 32F / 0 C) or when it is humid. I guess I would conclude that it is great glass unmatched by a better quality and more functional mechanical design.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from No vignetting at 16mm on Canon 6D Based on a few white wall and blue sky test shots with only the polarizer attached to the Lee holder there was no vignetting at 16mm on a full frame Canon 6D. Have yet to assess the warming effect or use of the polarizer with ND filters. No issues screwing it on or off the 105 adapter ring. I would have preferred a multi-coated filter for the price but I found other more expensive filters without a coating.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent quality, very slight vignetting at 16mm Quality is excellent. Using this polarizer in front of the Lee foundation makes it very easy to adjust the polarizer before slipping in the ND filters (without messing your polarizer rotation when you add them). It also keeps the polarizer in front of the ND filters as recommended. I'm using it in front of the foundation with two slots left for filters. On my Sony A7Rii using the 16-35 2.8 GM lens (with the 82mm adapter ring), there is a small area of vignetting in the corners at 16mm. By about 18mm, it is gone. This is not a major issue for me but wanted to post this in case others wanted to know. If you are using another 16-35 that has a slightly narrower 77mm adapter, you might not see any vignetting at 16mm. Reducing my foundation slots to 1 might also help by moving the polarizer closer but I want to have 2 slots available for ND filters. I would rate this 5 stars except for the vignetting I get.
