Despite my best efforts, many of my best shots are marred by reflections. Case in point were beautiful views of the golden vineyards near Neuchatel on the train from Basel to Geneva. Very disappointed in the success rate.

I am thinking of using polarizing filters but wanted advice from the experts first. My gear consists of D700 and D7000 bodies with 50mm AF 1.8D and 16-35 AF-S 4G lenses. The 50mm lens (especially on the much lighter D7000) works very well on a cramped plane. The D700 with 16-35 does very well on a train, or any place with more room.

I have read that a filter on the 50mm could cause problems because of the space between the lens surface and the filter.

Thanks for any advice.
