I honestly see no difference in quality between these and my much more expensive filters. I own similar filters that were 20-30$ each, so I was skeptical of the Amazon Basics brand at less than a quarter their price but I figured for a few bucks each you can't go wrong.
The filters arrived not only wrapped in bubble wrap but also encased in a hard plastic holder with foam inlay cut around the filters to ensure no damage.
I use these primarily for protection on my lenses, and recommend everyone to do the same as it's much cheaper to replace a filter than it is a lens.
Anyhow, I'll upload photos side by side with this and the expensive filter so you can all see there's no difference but suffice it to say that there is none. No flare, color differential, image distortion of any kind.
Continually surprised by the quality of Amazon branded products.
I returned this. While it probably does a good job of protecting the front of the lens, and introduced no color shift, they are either non-coated or minimally coated and added too much flare. I spent more money to get a better filter with coatings that repel water and avoid flare.
The filter does what I need and for a fraction of the price of some of the name brands. My only complaint is that the threading on the aluminum ring feels slightly rough, almost to the point where it feels like a step was skipped in the manufacturing process. It does thread on to the lens without much hassle, but not as smoothly as I had hoped. For the price, I will live with that one minor complaint.
