The B+W 62mm 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.

Clears up haze in distant landscapes and provides more saturated, vivid colors.
Strongest effect when used at a 90° 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.
Multi-Resistant Coating offers both protection to the glass and helps to improve light transmission and image quality.
Constructed from high quality Schott glass for optical clarity.
Brass filter ring helps to prevent jamming and provides additional strength.

    62mm Circular Polarizer MRC Filter is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 29.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does a fantastic job, excellent craftsmanship B+W is never a disappointment. Purchased for typical use but also to help reduce specular and other bright reflections on glossy prduct shots, the filter does a remarkable job. The rotation of the filter is very, very smooth and steady; not too fast or slow, it allows for perfect alignment to get the results in whatever lighting situation you are dealing with. Very crisp. There are absolutely no image inconsistencies or issues you might find in lesser quality products. Highly recommended.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Filter does what it is supposed to do Sometimes filters can be like sox, a necessary but unglamorous piece of photo gear. I have used a number of B+W polarizers over the years. A recent, larger diameter lens purchased for landscape photography required another polarizing filter. I'm happy with it.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from well made but Vignettes from 16-28mm A great piece of gear well made and works well beyond 28mm but produces strong vignetting from 16-28mm which is disappointing as I bought it for landscape photos and tend to shoot a lot at 16mm
