I use Tamron lens on my 10D and would like a polerization filter. I'm not having any luck finding one. Maybe I'm looking in the wrong places or being guided by lack of information about them. If anyone uses one on a digital camera, please share some info. I will give you a lolli-pop.

Plenty out there -- just google "polarizing filter" with the len's filter millimeter size to it. Pretty sure you'll want a circular poloratizing filter as opposed to a linear one. Good luck with it.

If you're using the 28-75 f:2.8 and you're feeling rich...

Leica Polarizer - $335

If you're cheap like me....

General Brand Polarizer - $39

Just make sure you get the right size, I'm guessing at what lens you're using.

I'm not particularly fond of the B+H polarizers. This is only my opinion, but I've found that Nikon makes the best polarizers around. They use thin mounts and are oversized, so they don't vignette even with other filters in place, they're 1/2 to 2/3 stop brighter than anything else I've used, they're coated, they truly are neutral, and they're keyed to only rotate 190 degrees, so they're easy to remove. The Singh-Ray polarizers are also superb. The Hoyas are a great value though if you don't want to cough up the $$ for either of the above.

I use polarizing filters and have acquired all of them at my local photo retailer

As mentioned there are two types linear and circular one type for manual focus the other for auto focus.

You can use a circular filter on a manual focus lens but not a linear on an auto focus lens.

Just remember what ever lens you are using it's only as good as the filter in front of it.

So if you have a $1000.00 lens and a $39.00 filter then the lens has been compromised by the filter quality.

Most third party polarizing filters will work well on consumer type lenses.

There is a whole host of great filters out there you just need to research them and find one type (brand) that most suits your needs and budget.

Polarizing filters in my kits include Tiffen, Tamron, Cokin, Hoya, Nikon, B+W and a Singh-Ray.

Awesome, thank you. I use 3 Tamron lens. So, I will most likely get a more affordable filter until I get better lens.

Don't under estimate the power of a Tamron lens, like any manufacture O.E.M. or third party they have their not so good glass along with some awesome stuff as well.

Do your research on the glass that will most suit your needs and budget.

Read a few reviews about the lens you are interested in and then budget for that lens.

I've used many Tamron lenses and still have a couple in my camera bags only one of the very early 28 to 300 mm was a poor lens.

The polarizing filter to me for my outdoor photography is an invaluable tool.

Everyone on here will have their own opinions about make of filters it’s up to you to read and understand what it is these people are telling you and then make your own judgment.

Cheers be safe out there.
