Did not meet expectations.

The AmazonBasics UV filter met expectation but this CPL did not. I wish I had tested it as soon as I bought it but a couple months passed before having the chance to actually shoot with it under proper conditions. It does not compare to my previous Hoya Pro-1 filter at all. It created a weird yellow cast running down the middle of the viewfinder no matter how I spun it and while it didn’t show up in my images it’s distracting. I did a bunch of test shots but found there was very little difference in the tone of sky or clouds and where as the Hoya is brilliant at reducing glare or reflections in glass and water this did not give me the results I was expecting. Would have returned it if I could have. Maybe I just got a defective one. This is headed to the useless bin and a new Hoya filter is on its way.
