    Hey All,

    I need a recommendation for a polarizing filter for the said lens in combination with a Rebel XTi. Thanks in advance.

    I've had really good luck buying from http://www.2filter.com/prices/specials.html.
    He's very knowledgeable and good to talk to on the phone and will advise you as to the best-but not necessarily most expensive -filter for your needs.

    I recommend the B+W circular polarizer. Its a great quality filter.

    I'll also add that I'd like to spend about $80. Will an $80 filter be a detriment to such a high quality lens?

    Well, just as a chain is only as strong as its weakest link, a lens is only as good as its worst piece of glass. Multi coating help prevent flare, which can be a big issue when shooting with filters. I wouldn't recommend a filter that wasn't multi-coated, but I'm sure in most situations you would be OK without it. Here's a Hoya multi-coated polarizer for $85.00: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/116781-REG/Hoya_016676_67mm_Circular_Polarizer_HMC_.html

    I only have experience with B+W, but people say good things about Hoya as well.

    Isn't your lens a 10-210?

    Just wondering.
