Forgive my ignorance, but if it is said that a polarizer typically makes one lose three to four stops, does that mean DOF is enhanced?

No, you only lose the equivalent amount of light.

I would kind of like to see "polarized noise." It sounds like an interesting effect.

Polarizers ? For landscapes now and then clouds and sky or occasional sun-on-water stuff. The only other use I've had in 40 years is knocking down refracted light in store fronts or display cases.

I use a UV (multi coated) filter on all my lenses, primarily for protection - and definately a lens hood !

B+W MRC UV, Hood, and shooting raw, would that not be a better choice?
