The filter is variable all right. When I look through it and move it there are distortions noticeable in anything with a lined pattern. Apparently not very planar. I'll be returning it.
It's sharp enough, it feels sturdy and well built, however I get a brown streak across the center of the image with this filter. I suppose it's a manufacturing defect or perhaps just bad glass? Anyways I recommend a better quality ND filter...
I only use Pro-Optic filters unless they are not available in the size I need. On a recent photo trip, I accidentally sat or stepped on my filter case and broke two filters, my 72mm CP and my 72mm VND. I immediately ordered replacements. Adorama provides free shipping. Thanks, Adorama, but it should not take 12 days to go from New Jersey to South Carolina. Unfortunately, now Adorama ships via UPS, who delivers it to North Carolina, where it is turned over to the post office, who then delivers it. The total weight of the heaviest of these filters, with plastic case is 3 ounces. Next time, Adorama, just put it in an envelope, stick the postage on it and drop it in the mail. I will have it in three days. For what it's worth, this new delivery method is one of the worst. When you offer free shipping, that is not a license to abuse your clients with slow delivery. Yes, I could have paid for 2 day shipping, but the cost was exorbitant for the service that was offered. I will continue to buy from Adorama, at least with regards to pro-optic products.
I have found the Pro Optic 72mm Variable HD ND Filter, ND2 to ND400 to be a very good investment that has added to my ability to get those really good landscape and nature shots. The price was certainly right and the Pro Optic meets all my cuurent needs and expectations. The only negative comment is that upon receipt the besel ring and thus the outer lens were very loose. I tightened it but was somewhat disappointed at the lack of QA on the item.
