I love mine for its lightness, flexibility, IQ and great all around usefulness. It's sharp without correction and then running it through DxO or something similar yields incredible results.
Good eye. Yes, it was quite hazy this morning and the RAW file actually shows a darker, smog-like haze along the horizon line. It really needed the CPL. Yesterday was the same with a whiteish-blue sky full of haze. The type of light that makes your eyes hurt. No fun for landscape photography.
And it was shot at F10.
