Nice filter, wish it cost less, but I suppose you get what you pay for. The brass ring gives it a nice feel. I use these on Leica lenses to provide protection, cut UV (I shoot color neg), and allow me to almost never use lens caps. Just store the lenses on the bodies with filers and hood in place. Makes for quicker shooting for me. I also like to keep my front elements dust free, and with these I can clean the filter, and not the actual element. Im sure over time this will be worth it, I can always purchase a new filter but would rather not replace a scratched front element from my over cleaning.
The filter was so clear, people are inclined to touch it just to see if there is glass at all. The multicoating is also worth it. The filter is pretty easy to clean.
I am not a pro and have no basis for comparison. I used it for protection on a new lens (Fuji 66 mm.). and it takes great pictures with spectacular color.
