    Seriously, your thread was an interesting read. There were varying opinions and was rather "heated up" at times. Anyway, I guessed it is part and parcel of an open forum. Perhaps this is what that gives the forum its charms and colours.

    I have no doubt that B+W is a good filter (that is why I am also buying them), but I personally do not think that the rest are FAR inferior.

    At the given price of some "cheaper" filters, it could be a worthy buy and still serve its function well. It may not hold truth for the professionals and avid photographers, but it could be a good start for the beginners as well as those without a deep pocket. (I am once a poor student many years ago and I would be more than satisfied with a HOYA or COKIN.)

    Happy shooting and have a blessed Christmas and victorious New Year ahead.
