Was recently in HK, bought some B+W filters. Realised that the one i bought locally a while back stated "Made in Germany" on the outer ring of the filter, but the ones i got in HK stated only "Germany". Whilst i dont see or feel any other difference, is this any cause for concern? Feeling is that the filters could just have been made in different factories hence the minor difference, packaging is the same though.

The newest B+W filters have the words 'MADE IN GERMANY' on the outer ring and the type name located on the outer part on the glass filter.

Oicic. Mine has the B+W, F-Pro and Made in Germany writing on the external part of the rim. The filter size and type of filter writings are located on the inside. When filter is attached to lens, these writings are faced upwards on the circumference of the rim.

Hello,

we thank you for your mail and for your interest in our product.
The filters you bought in Hong Kong is a "special production" for our distributor in Hong Kong, the mount are made of aluminium.
The optical quality is the same.

B+W's rims are supposed to be made of brass, which i preferred over aluminum.
