Henry - I want to make it clear to everyone one this thread that I was not suggesting that B&H is knowingly selling fake filters. If anyone took my comments as such I apologize. The filters came in the new, blue B&W Professional packaging with seals intact. The filters did not have internal retaining rings, however, and the glass fell out shortly after opening. According to an email that I received from Schneider Kreuznach, there are retaining rings in all of the Bay filters. Since the filters had the correct, sealed packing, I was wondering if B&H had unknowingly received and shipped some fake ones.
To everyone - I sent an email to B&H customer service and they are exchanging my filters for new ones, and are paying for shipping. They are my primary source of photo gear and I will certainly continue to use them.
Henry - I will send you my question to SK and their response.
