We all should know the B+W filters. They are made by the German company Schneider Optics and made of glass from the Schott Company. The standard version of the filter has antireflective coatings. The Slim version filters don’t create additional vignetting when put on wide corner lenses (the lenses with a focal length less than 24mm – the equivalent of a small frame lens).

Summary:

    The Slim version of the simple B+W filter doesn’t impress us with either its price or its capabilities. If you use the wide frame lenses, you should pay extra and buy the MRC version.
