Circular Polarizing Filter

Circular Polarizing Filter
This is an area which I have never got into but reading up about them I should perhaps use one.

I have a Canon 350D with the following lenses
Canon EF-S 55-200mm 18-55 mm
52 mm 58mm

Cannon 79 25
Hoya 89 31

(Warehouse Express Online prices which having shopped around seem the best)
Should I go for the Canon despite the price difference? Hoya have an excellent reputation so am I just paying for the Canon name?
Whilst on the subject of filters. Should I get a Skylight or UV primarily to use as lens protection?

Thank you

Bwep

I think that is what you were trying to do?

There are three thread listed below with lots of information on filters and hat they do, how useful they are and the quality vs cost points. As you will see by reading through them, opinions vary greatly but hopefully they will help you make the right decision for you.
