Well the only real drawback would be that it makes his lens 1 stop(ish) slower, that might not be a problem unless there's not a lot of light to shoot in.

Think I must have a strong polariser. It knocks more like two stops off my exposure, I think.

Yeah, it is actually

Stop-harvesting buggers. But then again I do like polarisation. I'm guessing I wouldn't get as good an effect with a weaker one?

I did wonder about this - I have a couple of Jessops polarisers and I must admit they darken the image quite considerably - much more than I anticipated.

Was going to get the Hoya but now considering Nikon........expensive but regarded as superior compared to Hoya.
