Wanted to get some reaction to a purchase I just 'won' on ebay. I needed (badly!) a polarizer for my 'phayeed' FZ10. I was also wanting to look into a little macro play. Anyway, I'm thinking surely I can resell a few of thelenses individually and recoup my costs. The item number is 7519552972. If you've nothing better to do on a late Friday night, would you mind checking it out and letting me know if I screwed up or not? I don't think I did as the polarizer generally goes for $50 itself (I think.) Anyway, just thought I'd ask. If no replies, I totallly understand.

Looks okay to me.. I know Hoya polarizer (62mm cir) are over $50 (retail).. So as long as it's in good shape....

Good luck,
Jeff

Not a bad deal and if you can resell the ones you won't need at a good price then it is a great deal.

You do not need a circular polarizer, you can get a linear polarizer for under $18.00 incl. shipping on Ebay.

I know I could use a linear polarizer. BUT, after looking at what I was getting at the auction, I decided that I could part with all the duplicate lenses individually on ebay and maybe MAKE some money in the deal, (as suggested by rcci.) Since posting this, I decided to see what the other duplicates might bring using ebay's 'past auctions', and it appears I can clear a minimum of $50. Plus it gets my 'feet wet' in selling on ebay (I've never sold, just purchased.) Maybe won't be worth the hassle of selling but a good way to find out I guess. I've never used any kind of filters and at this point don't know if the others are even worth using on a digital camera where post manipulation is possible in programs like PS. But I'm having fun learning a little bit! And got to keep this hobby as cheap as I can !

Thanks to all who replied.
