Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I bought three sets of these Ritz Gear MC Super Slim Lens filters for two different brands of camera I own. This is a preliminary review and I will update if I should find that I simply got a bad copy. However, thus far the results I am seeing are puzzling.* The 52mm UV filter has entirely eliminated the ability for my camera to produce a focused image, whether in autofocus or manual focus modes.
I have gone through a couple of off-brand UV filters for my lenses and, realizing that they diminish image quality or flare to some extent, I decided to research my options. Ritz is a trusted brand, whereas Schott optical glass is used in filter brands costing $80+ for a single filter. This set seemed like a no-brainer — a store brand alternative to the costly brand-name counterparts. Unfortunately, the filters I have unpackaged thus far have been marked up (dirty) right out of the wrapper, and there are no instructions indicating if the coating is adversely impacted by any...
Great quality glass lens filters for the price. At this price it is hard to find glass lens filters. This makes a big difference in the images you are able to shoot with them. Nice storage pouch for them as well.
**UPDATE - The first part of the review was based on my initial impressions of this item. After about a year of hobbyist use, I've decided it is not advisable to go cheap on my lens filters. Numerous ones of these have unthreaded and the glass has fallen out. They are thin and the metal is not very good. I would say if you are just a starter and wanting to play and see what kinds of effects each of these filters provide it is a good place to start. But if you are any more than experimenting buy better glass!
Ritz is marketing these as Schott Glass Filters. while 2 of 4 are made in Japan,which is buried in the fine print. The ad is clearly written to mislead the consumer into believing that the entire set of filters is made out of Schott Glass.
The front of the box itself is labelled :"Made with Schott Glass.
As fart as I am concerned, Ritz's credibility is "Schott".as were the photos I took using the UV filter,which showed more ghosting and flare than cheaper filters have. I am returning these and purchasing Hoya filters.
The front of the box is labelled " Made with SCHOTT GLASS." Only in the find print on the back of the box,does it say that two are made in Japan." Whe
