From The-Digital-Picture:

A site visitor recently reached out to us with concerns regarding a few B+W filters he purchased on Amazon (via third-party). While shooting test images with the filters, he noticed a significant drop in image quality and suspected they may have been counterfeit.

We recommend buying B+W filters from B&H Photo if they ship to your country.
