Thread: B+W filters: worth paying so much?

    My father in law had a slim B+W UV-Haze filter and the problem is that it cannot fit in a lens cap cos there are no front thread. In the end, he bought a normal "full-height" filter.

    Well, if he's using on zooms, should be quite ok.

    i realised that the coating of the XS-Pro looks abit bluish tint..whereas the good old F-Pro coating has a brownish tint, however i cant see any difference when shooting with either of them

    Juz bought a Kenko Pro1 Digital filter. For the price, it seems worth it. Better than the Hoya UV coated one I have. Saw the Kenko had greenish tint slightly when view at an angle.

    In fact, no difference at all.

    I will like to help to clarify some of the terms and misconception used by some of the users. B+W filters has a few mount series:

    Digital Pro: Chrome color , 5mm (non polariser), 7mm (polariser), allows lense cap on.
    F-PRO: Black color, 5mm (non polariser), 7mm (polariser), allows lense cap on.
    XS-PRO: Black color, 3.4mm (non polariser), TBD mm (polariser), allows lense cap on.
    SLIM: Black color, 3mm (non polariser), 5mm (polariser) cannot put lense cap on, has to use filter cap provided.
    EW (Extra Wide): This is essentially an 'addon' of the above series, with 'built-in' step down rings of a larger filter glass. Eg 82mm filter with 77mm thread. Use to prevent vignetting.

    He is one of the sellers of filter, specialist of B+W filter in Mass Sales corner!

    A damn good recommended seller,
    with damn price (althought expensive also, but worth it--Filter will NEVER say goodbye if you take care of it).

    If have $, why not B+W
    If have less $, why not Hoya
    If no money, why put on filter?!

    Tat is jus my comment. no offence!


    Cheers,
    Tim

    if you cant afford it, just stick to Hoya, Vitacon or Kenko's...... your images will not turn out better or worse

    oh wait.... for a low price, one now has an excuse to blame their crappy photography on

    OR one can still turn out great images "despite" using regular filters

    purely toungue in cheek seeing how long this thread has survived (since 2007)
