I found one on ebay for $2.99: 72mm CPL Filter For Canon 28-135mm 28-200mm IS USM Lens

What is the diff between this filter and one I might buy at a retail shop for around $60?

what make is it?... The quality of the glass may be of poorer quality like some of the other filters out there... Having said that, I bought a new and genuine 77mm Canon CPL for a song on ebay, still in its original packing with an unbroken seal...

I found a Polaroid brand for $20 bucks on amazon...it has a guarantee, so (hopefully) I'm good. Also bought a lens hood for my Baby, should be here well before River Fest. Which will come in handy as I will be shooting a lot during the day!

As you know they are best at 90 degrees to the sun... If the sun is behind, or in front of you, it will only loose you 1½-2 stops of light... ALso using a polariser with alens hood is extremely difficult... Using a polariser is the only time I take my lens hood off to shoot, ever...

Cool, thanks for that. I was thinking about that earlier, the hood AND the filter together. The hood would make it difficult to adjust the filter...makes sense tho.
