I always used to wonder why a person would spend $200 on a pair of sunglasses, but once I tried on a pair, I could tell where the money was going. The type of sunset you see through a cheap pair of polarized glasses compared with what you see through the polarized lenses on a pair of Maui Jim sunglasses is drastically different. So I'm wondering two things:

1. Does the cost and/or company who produces a polarized filter for your camera lens make a noticeable difference? Or are the ones currently on the market all about the same?

2. If I put two polarized filters on top of each other, would it heighten the effects of a sunset noticeably greater than using only one? (don't worry about the light loss)

Thanks in advance for your help,
-Shane
