I take lots of landscape photos and Ive always heard that polarizers help keep brightskies from being too nasty, so Im considering getting one for my V3.Sony makes the VF-58CPKS polarizer for the V3 and sells it for ~$100 butI see it listed in the $60's & $70's w/ online vendors. Is this filter worth buying or is a $30 Quantary from Ritz just as good? I am aware that digital cams need a different type of polarizer than film cams (circular, correct?)

Any suggestions, please? Thanks!

Digital cams do not need the filter + hype. The Sony can use a linear polarizer the 58mm Hoyaon eBay for $22.00.
