    I am wondering if anyone has recommendations for an excellent polarizing filter for a reasonable price for a Canon EF 100- 400 f4.5-5.6 IS USM?

    Thanks

    nothing less than a B+W polarizer will suffice for a $1300 lens.

    B+W or heliopan if you can
    if your REALLY tight on money, I'm happy with a marumi I own as well
    granted all my lenses have been sub 700

    Thanks and a few more Questons?

    Thanks everyone for your thoughtful feedback and technical links.

    There are several different versions of the B+W, which do you recommend.

    Secondly, in looking at the technical data, the Murami 77mm seems about equivalent ( the B+W was disqualified). Did I interpret this correctly, and are the differences significant in the real world?



    Thanks again.

    I use #8 on that list. If you are using a telephoto lens, you don't need to pay extra for a "slim" version. If I didn't get a great price on mine, I would have got the regular version.

    Has anyone had experience with the new CPL filters with the new "high transmission" polarizing films, that lets more light through yet maintains the same polarization? I would be curious to see if they really work as well, and if the extra light transmission helps with keeping a good shutter speed.
