The B+W 67mm XS-Pro Kaesemann High Transmission Circular Polarizer MRC-Nano 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.

B+W XS-Pro Overview

The B+W 67mm XS-Pro Kaesemann High Transmission Circular Polarizer MRC-Nano 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.

Kaesemann High Transmission Circular (HTC) polarizing filters are fitted with polarizing foils which provide 99.5% light transmission that are cemented between plano-parallel optical glass. The resulting sandwich is then precision-polished to achieve accurate plano-parallel surfaces. Finally, they are edge-sealed to protect the foil against humidity.

To prevent internal ghosting and reflections, each glass surface includes multiple layers of anti-reflection coating. This Multi-Resistant Coating (MRC) also offers further protection to the filter substrate and helps it to stay clean for longer than with uncoated filters. The Nano coating associated with XS-Pro filters provides an additional eighth layer over the MRC, resulting in an improved beading effect when in contact with water for greater cleaning efficiency.

B+W filters are constructed from Schott glass for increased optical clarity and color fidelity. This filter features a thin brass filter ring to minimize the potential for vignetting while enhancing durability and jamming prevention. To further reduce the possibility of vignetting when this filter is in use, the filter ring's outside diameter is slightly larger than the actual thread size. This may prevent the use of some lens manufacturer bayonet hoods.

Anyone know if this filer slim enough to not cause vignetting with my Fuji 16mm 1.4 lens?
Asked by: Vincent
Yes any of the XS filters will be thin enough not to cause a vignette on your Fuji 16mm lens.

question

Will this filter work with the lens hood on a Canon 70-300 L?
Asked by: Danno
I would imagine it would work, as long as the lens hood is threaded the same as the filter.

question

Will the lens hood of the Canon 18-135 stm fit over this filter? The info says that the slightly wider than the lens rim of this filter may interfere with some bayonet lens hoods. Thanks.
Asked by: Jeff E.
I have the Canon EW-73D lens hood for the Canon 18-135 mm IS USM, and it fits over the filter. Rotation of the filter is possible and easy.

question

Does anyone use this filter with Nikon AF-S NIKKOR16-35mm f/4G ED VR lens? How about the vignetting on the 16mm, 18mm, 20mm, 24mm? The filter bezel seems a little bit thicker on this filter, at least on the product images.
Asked by: Ivaylo
This polarizer will not vignette at all on the 16-35mm Nikkor.

question

What is the thickness size of this filter?
Asked by: Catherine
It does a superb job! Well worth the money. Took it on an Alaskan cruise and used it in Glacier Bay and College Fjord. Used it any time the pic's were over water on the whole cruise. Got beautiful glacier pic's as well as whales, sea otters, seals etc.

question

can you screw on a Lee 67mm wide angle adapter ring in front of this filter?
Asked by: Catherine
I wouldn't. The front element rotates, so your right angle could be facing any direction. also, the thread depth is quite shallow, and I'd be worried that the weight would damage the filter
