Pros: Quality build, slim, ridged ring for ease of use,
Cons: None so far

I'm getting active again as a photographer and will be working robotics events with high school students in a crowded environment with a requirement that people wear safety glasses. That made me realize that I needed to be looking for some protection for expensive lenses that would not break the bank. I was also attracted to Breakthrough Photography because they are US-based and the reviews available are all positive

The reviews on Amazon and Adorama are all nearly 100% positive. So, I ordered two X1 filters (62mm & 77mm) from Amazon and I am not disappointed. Nice construction, laser etched instead of painted, ridges on the outer edge to ad grip for installation and removal, well packaged, and easy to clean.
