News Flash! My linear polarizer works perfectly fine on my KM Maxxum 5D. The camera focuses swiftly and accurately with it. So, I see no need to get a circular one, regardless of what people might say.
Try it!

I remember this being discussed last year on the Olympus digivam forum, and the concensus was that you need a circular for AF cameras, but not for digital. I ran across a good deal on circular PL filters in the sizes I need, so I use them anyway.

Only problem is I have to readjust the alignment after the focusing because the lens rotates. However, thatwould be true for the CP as well.
