    The only funny experience I had -- for one unaccustomed to such holidays -- with B&H, was an issue one September some years back, when I tried to contact them -- and they were closed for a week due to Rosh Hashanah. They have a quite elaborate holiday closure schedule . . .

    Looking good
    I can't rlly reccomend a cpl for macro shots though.
    Usually there's not enough light allrdy to make the shots i want and a cpl only makes it darker.
    Overexposure etc is easily fixed in a program like camera raw (if you shoot in raw mode, it wont rlly help if you shoot jpegs)

    I'd try with a cheap one first, so far i've not been impressed with my cpl with anything other then landscape shots.

    ummm maybe too late for that Tal :P

    I wanted a nice one for fall foliage shots, so i ordered a Hoya Pro1 a couple days ago
    not the most expensive by far, but not the cheapest by far neither

    Very nice!! I'm most impressed with your bee. I'm yet to do that well!
    Where do we go when we just don't know,
    And how do we relight the flame when it's cold?
    Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing,
    And when will we learn to control?
