Marumi Digital High Grade filters have been specially designed with Digital Photography in mind.

Other anti-reflect features include a special slim frame with satin smooth finish and a black ink process on the glass edge to eliminate flare.

Marumi are a make I've been using for a few years now, and I've been very pleased with their products overall.
This Polariser isn't cheap, you can hit the usual auction site for bargains (some are ok, some are not) The DHG is the digital high grade range of filters (the super DHG has an additional coating on it to aid cleaning)
At this price you start to get good quality, but without the B+W wallet busting price. This filter outperformed the B+W CPL filters on lenstip's testing, and most other makers too. In the real world it's well made, with a slim frame so vignetting is less of an issue on wider angle lenses.
Rotating the filter is smooth and without any grinding, optical quality is very good with an excellent polarising effect on images.
As a side note a CPL is useful for a few areas in photography
- Removing reflections on non metallic objects, and for effect in Landscape photography (darkening of the sky and increasing contrast)
I tend to use them mostly for removing reflections which can be useful for product photography or items in display glass, but the effect can also be handy for cutting out water reflections too. If it's not metal a CPL will kill reflections with ease.
For scenic work a CPL can be very useful, however I'd resist the temptation to use one all the time, or to always use one "dialled up to the max". When you rotate the filter the effect of polarisation becomes stronger, but there are times when you might not want to use it at it's strongest.Read more ›
A polarising filter is useful for boosting the saturation of colour in skies and it. It also affects the way reflected light is seen, so they can be used to emphasise or diminish reflections, eg from water or non metal surfaces. By reducing the reflections they can also help to boost the saturation of colours in foliage and other objects. If you want to see the effect, look at any travel brochure. Those boats that seem to float above crystal clear seas? All done with a polariser. The rich dark blue skies and saturated scenery? All helped alown with a polariser.
The two photos attached show the ghost image caused by a cheap filter and a Marumi DHG. There is still a tiny reflection from the Marumi, but it is hardly noticeable.
I have many marumi, I see no point in spending more when these offer superb quality. I have had some cheap filters in the past, but it is worth finding quality if you want good results.
If you want to know more, look up lenstip.com, where they have excellent test data for various filters.
Overall, recommended for the price, but match it well to the quality of lens you have too.
It also outperforms the Hoya PRO-1. Search the net for 'circular polariser test', overall it even beats one of the B&W filters!
Used it a couple of times on my 18-55mm lenses and have to say I loved it. It makes your photos much more appealing with strong blue skies and much less reflections (water, windows, etc).
I highly recommend it.
