When I first got this I noticed a bunch of swirl marks on it that I wasn't able to get off. I ended up sending it back for a replacement but the replacement had the same issue. What I did next made the whole difference to the poor reviews seen on this. I contacted Tiffen, they had me send it to them at which they sent me a new one without defect. The guy I talked to told me this happens when the lenses get too hot such as being stuck in a shipping container in very hot conditions. It is wrong for the guy to sell these defective items but at least if you get a bad one definitely contact Tiffen as they will help you.
The filters I ordered arrived together-this and and Hoya UV. Very nice filters, go onto lens smoothly and with very vivid results! Shipping was very fast and arrived a few days earlier than predicted. Excellent prices on both lenses, a great buy!!! Only downfall I would mention is that they were shipped in a bubble envelope and the Red Tiffen filter had a huge crack on the case. I was worried it meant that the filter was damaged, but fortunately it wasn't.
I use this to enhance the contrast of Black and White photographs. It has nice results when there are interesting cloud formations in the sky. Orange, green and yellow may also be used, but I find the red most effective and don't like carrying a lot of filters with me. It's inexpensive, and if you like monochrome photography, it belongs in your camera bag. If you visit the websites of any of the major filter makers, they generally show a with/without comparison of all their filters.
