A German Company cutting corners ???
I can't even comprehend that, I guess we are all accustomed to American companies cutting corners. B+W makes the best filters in this Galaxy, maybe even the entire Universe. Something strange is going on ...

I'm assuming that these are not genuine B+W Products.
That's the only logical explanation possible.
