Hi all,

In april Im going to Athens with school, and Im going to bring my Panasonic FZ28 with me instead of the 350D. Why? Because of its great IQ and portability, and I dont want to lose my 350D...
I got an issue though. The polarfilter of my FZ28 gives really bad vignetting, there arent any corners @27mm, it just looks like a fisheye effect on a FF. I dont know how bright the sky will be in april, but do I have to use the polarfilter? If Ill use it, I have to crop really big parts of the images, and I think Ill need the 27mm coverage.
What should I do? Polarfilter and much cropping, or no polarfilter? I really love those blue skies though...
I can of course try this filter in hope to be not the same as the one I (my father) own : http://everbuying.com/46mm-Camera-Filter-CPL-p-19678.html

Also, a bit offtopic, what should I bring with me on the trip? Do you know important things I have to bring with me (standard things I bring of course with me...) and do you know some nice places in Athens? Any Greek people here?

Cheers!

What are the standard things you are going to be bringing with you so we may be able to suggest some other items.

Standard things? Well, the logical toiletstuff, soap etc, arg, just skip that question.

Should I buy that filter? Or shouldnt I? Should I use the filter, or should I let it home?

Personally, I believe "you get what you pay for" that being said I would not buy a $6 CPL filter. For my filters I only go with Hoya, I use them on my digital and film cameras and have been very happy with them, I am sure others will attest to Hoya's quality. A link is below to a Hoya 46mm CPL.

Seeing that you are in Holland, I know you don't want to order from that site because shipping is outrageous to Europe (I was going to order something to Rome where I am living and shipping was $50) Try finding a local camera shop where you can try out different filters to see if you get the vignetting problem.

Here is another link to Hoya's international distributor list.

Hope this all helps
