Not necessarily true. My T-90 requires a circular polarizer. It has to do with how the metering light is picked off. ....
Interesting. I hadn't thought of that but it makes perfect sense. Thanks.

There were both circular and linear polarizers in the camera bag. I saw the reflection reduced more with the linear polarizer.
I've also noticed that the linear polarizers are "better" in this regard.
