The Hoya 62mm alpha Circular Polarizer 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.

This filter is non-coated and has approximately 96% average light transmission. It is constructed from optical glass and precision milled aluminum frames.

Clears up haze in distant landscapes and provides more saturated, vivid colors.
Strongest effect when used at a 90° angle from the sun.
Circular polarizers are ideal for use with digital cameras and autofocus lenses where a linear polarizer will often disrupt auto exposure and focus features.
Non-coated.
Approximately 96% average light transmission.
3 to 4x filter factor reduces exposure by 1.6 to 2 stops.
Constructed from optical glass and precision milled aluminum frames.
Plastic filter case for storage and transport.

    62mm alpha Circular Polarizer Filter is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 23.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great filter I used to use a Hoya UV filter to protect my lens and enhance the sky in my shots. I just had eye surgery and am sensitive to bright light. This polarizing filter works no matter how the lens is situated because it is a circular polarization. At the same time, the outside ring can still be turned to give a different effect in the shot. It cuts enough light through the lens that my eye doesn't hurt, protects the lens itself and enhances shots with a lot of glare in them as well as, of course, enabling shots through the surface of water to give those clear underwater shots. It still allows 96% of the light through the lens so the F-stop and lens opening are not really effected that much, even in night shots. I just leave it on the lens. In many ways I prefer it over the UV filter. It was a good price and money well spent.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Filter I usually buy the Pro1 filters but decided to try this Alpha as the price was more in line with what I wanted to spend on the 62mm CPL. I'm very pleased with this filter. It renders a nice color to the sky and the quality is very good.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rich colors! Purchased this for my Lumix G7. I love it for outdoor/landscape shots. I believe it gives the already stunning shots a rich boost of color. Also, it's a practical use to protect the lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Hoya Polarizer I had a non Hoya Polarizer, big mistake. I just spent a week on vacation with perfect weather for my Polarizer. I can't believe the difference from what I had.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works really well I took some really good pictures while up by the Mississippi River about a week ago. It dialed in and pictures look great, I am by far not a professional by any means but this filter could make to look like one. Yes I would recommend this product plus the lens cap fits like it needs to.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Howa polarizing filter Beautifully engineered filter. Outer ring turns effortlessly. Only problem for me when using hot lights is how dark the subject is thru the polarizer. But I don't know if there is anything to do about that.
