Carl Zeiss has just gone into the market to make UV and circular polarising filters coated with the famous T* coating. This T* coating is also used in their Zeiss lenses. The good news is that the prices are comparable with the professional quality version of leading Japanese Brands.
You should be able to buy UV and circular polarising filters in the camera shops soon. I am taking one of the CPL filters to Himalayans for a test run. Will let you all know the results when I come back. at the end of the month.
