Wondering what everyone is using for filters when they are shooting wakeboarding? I upgraded my 70-200f/4 to the 2.8 and was thinking about getting the B+W MRC circular polarizer http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/9778-REG/B_W_66044844_77_mm_Circular_Polarizer.html
Any thoughts or opinions on B+W filters? Also, what is everyone else using for filters at the moment?

I've never liked shooting with a circular polarizer. In fact I'll cut you a deal on one.

B&W makes excellent filters but I think you'll find using a CP very difficult while shooting WBing. Every time you change the direction of the lens even slightly you'll need to re-adjust it. I own a bunch of filters but rarely use them.

Walt: do you mean in general for for shooting wake? What about landscape photog?

Rich: I understand what you mean about having to change the filter often with the changing angles of the rider. I guess have just gotten used to using a CP filter while shooting wake. I guess i should mess around with the new lens w/o a CP before i purchase one.

Chris,
It's a Promaster 67MM CP.

Brady,
I've never had good results no matter what I was shooting.

I have this UV filter from Hoya. Mainly I use it just for glass protection.
