I purchased one from them early last year and the current price is 43% less. Mine also came in the original box, so it wasn't pulled from a kit.

One thing I did see with a filter on the lens was reflections of lights in night scenes. If there was a bright light point in the scene, I would see a faint image on the other side, reflected about the center point of the lens. The reflections were not obvious in daylight shots and completely eliminated by removing the filter.

I don't know if another filter would be different, or if it was just due to the closeness of the filter to the lens front element with the XS version. Just thought I would mention it, since the kit includes a 27mm filter.
