A small question to all those who have the Big Stopper and remember its shipped packaging:
I got shipping notice from B&H yesterday and it said the "package weight" is 1.32 lbs (600gms) ... I'm assuming the filter i.e. weighs around 100gms ... if that's the case does it really need 1lbs (half a kilo) of packaging?
The filter itself is fairly heavy (it feels that way to me at least in comparison to the other filters I have). It comes in a metallic case. The padding is pretty extensive in the B&H packaging ... remember, this is a glass filter.

When it comes to gear, it is better to vote with your wallet. Bitching on online forums like a lunatic doesn't get you anywhere!
