Solid and functional.

I bought this as a lens protector. It seems like it will do well.
-The threading is nice and isn't as finicky and tight as a Hoya.
-The frame is a bit thicker than a Hoya which, since it's going on a zoom lens that's really shallow at the end, could help with protection.
-Cheaper than a Hoya
-Manufactured in North America
-Lacks a premium look and feel compared to a Hoya. Looking diagonally across the filter you can see the cut glass at the edges. It is thicker and heavier over-all compared to a Hoya.
-The package/case: *be warned*... it doesn't hinge and the fit between the case halves is tight. If you aren't expecting this the case may come open in a way that leaves you trying to catch the filter before it hits the ground.
