Both B+W MRC and Nikon NC are good filters.

But there's slight difference between them, Nikon's truely NC, == no colour, no colour tint, whereas B+W's, there's a slight warm tint to it.

So it depends on your preference. But all in all, get either one and you won't go wrong. :)

Are you talking about the B+W 77mm MRC 010 UV filter?
Those should go for just under $100 brand new.:think:

I prefer the B+W filter, the surface coating is very hard, good for rough handling and easy to clean after shoot.

I find that both B+W MRC and Nikon L37C is equally hard and can be rough handled. But B+W MRC is easier to clean IMO.

Mine are bought quite some time ago, served me well for the past years. =)

Maybe due to WC, QC slacking? :bsmilie:

Check against the reflection light of the glass coating surface. it is not smooth as in there are bad spot. :bigeyes:

One have a white dot where there is no coating.
Two have round dent surface on the glass.

YMMV
It is easier to see, or you need strong light?

I check all my B+W filters, and looks ok for my eye(s) :sweat: . Hopefully mine is old stock.

Regards,
Arto.
