Can anyone give me a clue as to the quality of the Heliopan 105mm CP? Its a lot cheaper than the Lee equivalent and I wondered if anyone can give me a sense of the quality?

I have the Heliopan and can say it performs very well. I opted for this over the Lee equivalent based on price as well as the heliopan is thinner so any chance of vignetting at wide angle is reduced. Never noticed any vignetting. It is built solidly, and does not affect image quality. The only thing I have noticed about it is that it does have a tendency to stick if it is not used for a little while, found a gentle tap releases it far easier than trying to twist.
A quality piece of glass you won't be disappointed.
Hope this helps,
Thank you Ian having just invested a huge amount of money on Lee filters I was a little reluctant to add another £300 for a CP. thanks for taking the time to respond.
I also have the slim Heliopan. It was recommend to me by Morco when I said I'd had problems with vignetting with my existing polariser.
I have had very good results with it and no problems at all. I would recommend it to anyone wanting a good polaiser.
Thank you Jude, looks like the Heliopan.
Helioppan or even genuine Chinese.
Lee are a rip-off imho
But, of course, all those who have been ripped off will come on here to defend their mistake.
