| p.2 #3 · Watch out for Test Rankings - Filter Flare |
Its extremely obvious that filter flare is very different than lens flare. If you can't see the difference than I really can't even begin the conversation.
And yes, there are definitely instances where you'll see lots of circ polar effects when shooting into the sun like in the samples I shot above.
But hey, if you REALLY WANT TO BELIEVE it makes no difference, then great for you but the way I see it, i was FOOLISH in thinking that Marumi filters were just as good. But you live and learn and I've learned there are no free lunches yet again!
I wanted to follow the conventional wisdom but I was wrong, the B+W MRC coatings are superior in flare reduction. If that is unimportant (and it is in certain situations) then by all means, spend 50%-100% less. False economies.
But again, for how much my lenses cost and how much my camera costs, this is a trivial difference to pay extra for a more flare resistant filter. I'm sure in certain situations its inconsequential.
