Does what youd expect, nothing else When people get super worked up over their UV filters I get upset, it's most likely only their to protect your lens and there is no reason to over think it. If you buy a cheapo filter, expect flare and chromatic aberration. CMOS sensors are sensitive to UV and often use it to determine WB and color profiles, so filtering it out will have some effect in that regard. Shooting RAW and adjusting in post is a better option anyway. This problem will exist wether you buy a $150 cokin, or a $20 tiffen.B+W on the other hand are a good, mid-range price filter with low aberration, and a small enough profile on the lens. In Macro work, I take the filter off, simply because their is no need for it, and it helps my d7000 focus. Regardless of B+W's large thread ring profile, the glass is quite thin, and produced minimal flare. Theyre easy to clean and a great touch of protection for your lens.Check out their X-Pro line as well, especially if you shoot outdoors a lot. 4Can't beat B+W filters! Simply the best filet in the world at a great price. I bought a Tamron 150-600 mm lens and decided not to skimp on a cheap filter,boy was i ever glad i didn't! This filter pulls the nice blues out of the sky and madness for a super sharp, tack sharp picture everytime! Also since it also protects your lens glass, you dont have to worry about scratching you're expensive lens. If you have an expensive lens and want the best pic quality and protection, spend the money and get this filter and you will be so glad you did. 5Amazon is still full of counterfeit B+W filtersI have several B+W filters already so I m very familiar with what a counterfeit looks like. I just bought a new L glass and needed a UV filter for protection so I ordered direct from Amazon and received a counterfeit, they re getting so good at it too. The outer box came with a Chinese writing sticker on, first no. The filter weigh half as much as a genuine one and the gold writing on the side of the filter has a darker shade of gold, the writing on the filter itself was white printed on, not etched in. Very disappointed.Note: attached pictures for reference, 1) counterfeit product is the one with green sticker on the box, the box is slightly darker and the real item is more grayish black.2) counterfeit filter has white writing on the filter instead of gold3) The lighter gold writing on the side of the filter is the genuine product and the darker copper color is the counterfeit.4) The counterfeit filter smudge easily abd hard to clean, the genuine filter is coated and somewhat smudge resistant.5) The genuine filter weighs twice as much1Counterfeit!The product I received was clearly a fake. The quality of glass is not the same the real filter from B+W. The first picture shows a green tint the filter gives off. See the rest of the pictures to tell if yours is fake.1Great filter, some ghosting at night This is a great filter for protecting your lens and also getting rid of some flare. During the daytime you get no ghosting or artifacts. It's construction is also really great and the filter is just durable in general. It has a metal ring, which is great compared to some of the cheap filters that have plastic rings. It makes it feel expensive and nice, even though it isn't as expensive as some of the filters with MRC and other coatings. As for the actual glass, I've found that it will scratch at times, but is relatively durable. I've used it in sandy environments and it hasn't scratched as much as other cheaper filters. If you are going to need it to be more durable I would probably go for the same B+W filter, but with the MRC coating.The only real issue that I have had with this filter is that it creates some ghosting at night when there are street lights in the frame, and the filter with the MRC coating really does a good job of preventing this. This is the only flaw that I have found in this filter and is the reason why I am giving it four stars.I would highly recommend getting a filter for all of your lenses, not even because of the flare that it will reduce, but because of the protection that it adds to your lenses. If there's a rock or something that suddenly flies at your camera, or even if you are just in a wet, sandy, or windy environment, it'll be better for it to damage a $20 filter rather than a lens that costs hundreds of dollars.Also, I'd highly recommend avoiding cheaper Tiffen and Bower filters because they are not of good optical quality and will noticeable reduce the quality of your image. B+W is a great brand and I would highly recommend their filters, especially those with MRC coatings. 4This $60 filter saved our $1,700 lens. And that's exactly why I'm buying another one.Came here to purchase another B+W filter, and here's why......last night my wife came home from a photoshoot a little flustered. It was a bit overcast and some of the photos didn't turn out as well as she thought they could have. I was upstairs replacing some light bulbs, but had left the ladder downstairs. My wife bounced around the ladder, but had forgotten to snap the cover shut on the camera bag that she uses, and out flops her camera, lens first.Now let me backup here. My wife shoots weddings/families/portraits with a Canon 6D with L series lenses: the 24-70 f/2.8L II, the 70-200 f/2.8L II, the 100mm macro, the Sigma 50mm ART lens, etc... They have had B+W filters on them all for the past three years, and they've been great. Tack sharp images all around. No perceivable loss of quality whatsoever. They're also a cheap form of insurance for your nice lenses. I don't know if you've looked up the price of the Canon 24-70L II recently, but let's just say it's still upwards of $1,700.Now back to the camera flopping out of the camera bag. The lens hit the (carpeted) floor directly on the lens cap, crunching the B+W filter glass in the process. Horrified, I gently pried the glass out of the filter to check the (certain) damage to the front element of the lens. To my pleasant surprise, once the filter glass had been removed, there wasn't a SINGLE scratch on the actual lens glass. Not one. Attached is a pic of the damage.This $60 filter saved our $1,700 lens. And that's exactly why I'm buying another one.5Buyer beware!Ordered two of these filters in the same order, and am pretty sure that one is fake. The font/letter coloring printed on the filter itself.is completely different between the two, the boxes are both a different shade of gray. Only one of the filters had an authentic B+W filter seal on the case. One filter reflects light purple, the other green as seen in the photos.Will probably have to return both as I do not remember what filter came out of the sealed case, shame.1Glad to have a new one This was a replacement for my first one which cracked when I knocked my camera on a rock at Antelope Canyon. This filter was my insurance on a $2500 lens. Worth every penny! Glad to have a new one. 5A quality filter I buy UV filters for all my and my wife's lenses - Nikon, Olympus, Panasonic, Sigma, Tamron. I use these more for lens protection than optics. These B+Ws are more expensive than some others but they do not freeze when you need to remove them the way cheaper aluminum frame filters do and I've never seen them introduce any kind of optical problems. 5Got a real one, but clearly pre-ownedThe units I received aren't counterfeit, thankfully.BUT ONE OF TWO IS USED. At first I thought it was fake, it was so dirty. When I first opened the box, the inside of the plastic case and the filter itself were very dusty/dirty and had water spots and a partial fingerprint. It cleaned up okay, with a fair bit of effort. If I didn't need it for a trip tomorrow, I would return it.A second unit of the same model, in a different size, that I received at the same time was _immaculately_ clean.DON'T tell us these are NEW if they aren't NEW!1Crystal clearSometimes I forget I have these filters installed. I purchased 2 of these 47mm filters for my A7 camera lenses, one for the Sony FE 28mm f/2 lens, and the other for the Sony 55mm F/1.8 lens. They are crystal clear and keep my lenses well protected. I have not noticed any additional reflections compared to without the filter. While I'm sure they help with bright sunlight shooting situations, I'm using them primarily as lens protection. They also work well with the lens hoods for my lenses.5A Worthwhile Long Term Investment It's an extremely high-grade UV filter. If you're using a cheaper filter, you probably wouldn't notice a difference in image quality vs. the B+W to be honest. If you've got weird flare issues, this filter may be ever so slightly less prone to flare VS the cheapo filters, but honestly this is a nice filter, not some kind of black magic. It will still flare under some circumstances, and if you think you're seeing better images with a clear B+W filter mounted, you probably should get your eyes checked before you claim this filter is somehow that much "better." I'm a freelance photographer with 15 years' experience, and over the years I've used every filter brand imaginable, and I can tell you that the best cure for flaring with a UV filter mounted is to shoot without a filter. Because otherwise the laws of physics will always win, and a piece of glass in front of your lens will always be just another piece of glass.The B+W coatings clean better with microfiber cloths or even your t-shirt, and are a lot less streaky/temperamental than the cheapo filters when you're cleaning them (improperly cleaned cheapo filters will flare more, and since the cheapo filters are harder to clean, yeah no duh they will flare more). The B+Ws also last considerably longer, cheaper Marumi or other brand filters seem to be more prone to having their coatings flake off after a few years, whereas the B+W will look the same as new after that amount of time. This is why I buy B+W, because otherwise when it's clean, it's just a clear piece of glass like any other...My 5 cents'. 5Skip it, you don't know what you're really getting... other than streaks and hazeSomething's not right with this filter. It was hazy out of the box. I used some Zeiss lens cleaning wipes and it clouded terribly. I wiped and wiped with a microfiber lens cloth and it finally cleared up enough to try. It doesn't appear to degrade images very much so I give it 2 stars as it will protect your lens. But I suspect this is either a copy or something odd is going on. Amazon is doing a lot of things with their distribution lately to save money so you don't know what you're getting or from whom.The 2,500 reviews prior to 2018 are likely when Amazon was selling these through legitimate dealers. Now who knows what you're getting.2Impressed by the price. (But I had to return the first one) I'll start my review by saying the first filter that I received did not thread onto my Canon 24-105L lens so I was hesitant to return and get the same filter. Now that I did return it and receive a filter that was able to thread onto the lens completly I can say it is a quality piece of glass thats doesnt reflect too much in highlight areas. I am now more confident to take my camera on adventures where the glass could get scratched. 4Transparent & durable In my experience, neither the photographer nor the audience can tell much- and most times any- difference between a picture taken with a UV filter v. one taken without. Why then would I give this product a 5-star review then?Simple. I added this lens filter on to my Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF1 12.1MP Micro Four-Thirds Interchangeable Lens Digital Camera with LUMIX G 20mm f/1.7 Aspherical Lens in order to protect the lens.In that vein, and for the purpose that I purchased this lens for- I graded the lens on two categories: durability / build quality and the transparency of the lens.So, for durability, this product get 5 stars. It's well-built, and it's got a very solid feel in the hand. It makes a very subtle but nonetheless noticeable difference in the weight of your camera, so if you're looking to minimize camera weight, this may not be the lens for you. If you're looking to protect the investment in your hard-earned camera lens at any cost, however, this is definitely for you. Also, the lens cap on the Lumix will still fit on the filter, which gives the filter props.Secondly- this product gets 5 stars for lens transparency and the way it doesn't get in the way of the pictures you want to take. The only difference in pictures taken with the lens is that it doesn't appear to prevent lens flare- or perhaps it adds to it. I personally love the effect of lens flare- particularly during sunsets and sunrises, and with a wide open aperture. Asides from the lens flare- which due to personal preference I consider a boon rather than a detriment- though, there is no other difference in image quality that I have noticed.In short- this filter is the strong, silent type. It feels like it could take a beating while leaving the camera lens immaculate, and it does so invisibly. It's everything that I could want in a filter, and as such it never leaves my camera. 5Best UV filter for your lens! Anyone who purchased B+W knows that it is one of the top brands out there when it comes to filters. This UV filter does the job perfectly. It protects the front element of the lens while maintaining excellent image quality. I have dropped my lens several times and this UV filter protected it completely. The filter does not get stuck like other filters and it is easy to remove if needed. However, it remains in place when needed. With some filters, over tightening causes the filter to become stuck to the lens and it's a pain to remove.Highly recommend this! 5weight it to know genuine or counterfeit.B+W f-pro and xs-pro are my favor filer, other one is Lee filters. I know counterfeit is on amazon market place. I want to know what different between genuine and counterfeit. I bought B+W 77mm XS-Pro from Bill Turnar. It is counterfeit filter. It done very good job. the box and case is same as genuine. Also the printing is same laser printing. It is hard to see. The different is the weight, counterfeit is 17-18 grams. I bought other one from B&H few years ago. The weight is 37-38 grams (genuine). So the ring form alloy instead of brass. Also the Laser printing, if the white print instead of gold. It is counterfeit. because it laser print on alloy instead of brass. Amazon let me return without problem. if you don't know your filter is genuine or counterfeit, weight it is the best way.5COUNTERFEIT - Buyer BewareBought this and the XS-Pro and both are fakes. They're good at it too as both came with the hologram, all the stickers (even the self-marking one on the plastic storage box), felt heavy like brass, and "appeared" to have the lettering engraved on the inner metal edge of the filter. After reading the reviews I knew to be cautious. Upon inspection, there was a different tint to each when held under a lamp at an angle. One a bluish color and one a dark green. After spending hours on forums, I read that B+H and Adorama are authorized dealers. THEY ARE NOT. I called Adorama as they are a supplier for Amazon and asked if they were an authorized dealer to which the rep replied, "Yes, we are". So I placed an order. That one came with a lighter green tint than the exact one from Amazon and it felt much lighter.By this time I've wasted waaay too much time and effort on an unnecessary (debatable) UV filter. I called Schneider Optics, the parent company of B+W, to get some clarification. They informed me B+W no longer uses the QR scanning method to verify authenticity, that they are aware Amazon mixes their filters with other suppliers and are working to correct the problem, the plastic boxes no longer come with the self-marking sticker, Adorama and B+H are NOT authorized dealers and sometimes sell "grey market items".So even if you buy one that is "Sold and Fulfilled by Amazon" like me, there's no guarantee the filter you get will be authentic. I finally ended up finding a dealer on Schneider's website. It cost $15 more but it's the real thing and that's what I paid for. After all this hassle, the best way I've found to check is to take a toothpick and feel for the engraving. The fakes are painted and it's very hard to tell by sight, but on the real ones you can feel it.Hope this helps someone.1Counterfeit item, beware.This is a counterfiet item. The single thread had no start, the metal was aluminum, and the lettering was painted on. It would not thread into my lens.A real B&W XS Pro will have a brass frame, more than a single thread, and thread in perfectly. This is not the real deal, though they did a good job faking the packaging. They may have swapped the filter out of real packaging.Note the small nick in the anodizing showing shiny silver metal beneath. That ain t brass.Buyer beware.1Clear, Crystal Clear. I have been a user of the cheap Tiffen filters. When I bought my first over $500 lens, decided to try something better. B+W was an obvious choice from reviews and how correct they are. When I opened the box and took the filter in my hands, for a moment I thought that the filter just had the ring and didn't have the glass. The glass was that clear.I must say that being single coated, I do get the occasional glare. Should try out the multi coated one for my next lens.In short, if you are buying a good lens, don't spoil it with a bad filter on the front. 5

They're good at it too as both came with the hologram, all the stickers (even the self-marking one on the plastic storage box), felt heavy like brass, and "appeared" to have the lettering engraved on the inner metal edge of the filter. After reading the reviews I knew to be cautious. Upon inspection, there was a different tint to each when held under a lamp at an angle. One a bluish color and one a dark green. After spending hours on forums, I read that B+H and Adorama are authorized dealers. THEY ARE NOT. I called Adorama as they are a supplier for Amazon and asked if they were an authorized dealer to which the rep replied, "Yes, we are". So I placed an order. That one came with a lighter green tint than the exact one from Amazon and it felt much lighter.By this time I've wasted waaay too much time and effort on an unnecessary (debatable) UV filter. I called Schneider Optics, the parent company of B+W, to get some clarification. They informed me B+W no longer uses the QR scanning method to verify authenticity, that they are aware Amazon mixes their filters with other suppliers and are working to correct the problem, the plastic boxes no longer come with the self-marking sticker, Adorama and B+H are NOT authorized dealers and sometimes sell "grey market items".So even if you buy one that is "Sold and Fulfilled by Amazon" like me, there's no guarantee the filter you get will be authentic. I finally ended up finding a dealer on Schneider's website. It cost $15 more but it's the real thing and that's what I paid for. After all this hassle, the best way I've found to check is to take a toothpick and feel for the engraving. The fakes are painted and it's very hard to tell by sight, but on the real ones you can feel it.Hope this helps someone.1Counterfeit item, beware.This is a counterfiet item. The single thread had no start, the metal was aluminum, and the lettering was painted on. It would not thread into my lens.A real B&W XS Pro will have a brass frame, more than a single thread, and thread in perfectly. This is not the real deal, though they did a good job faking the packaging. They may have swapped the filter out of real packaging.Note the small nick in the anodizing showing shiny silver metal beneath. That ain t brass.Buyer beware.1Clear, Crystal Clear. I have been a user of the cheap Tiffen filters. When I bought my first over $500 lens, decided to try something better. B+W was an obvious choice from reviews and how correct they are. When I opened the box and took the filter in my hands, for a moment I thought that the filter just had the ring and didn't have the glass. The glass was that clear.I must say that being single coated, I do get the occasional glare. Should try out the multi coated one for my next lens.In short, if you are buying a good lens, don't spoil it with a bad filter on the front. 5
