I can second this. I've been buying the same brand/make and they are worth the extra cost over the cheaper Hoya/Tiffin models IMHO. Easier to clean too.

Agreed. I have a small pile of Hoya lenses that i tired to make due with before finally breaking down and going with the B+W filters. The Hoya's are pretty good, but such a pain to clean/keep clean. The B+W's are definitely worth the additional cost and the filter rings are noticeably thinner than the Hoya rings in case you're worried about vignetting.
