B+W 77mm ND .6 F-Pro SC Neutral Density Filter
If excellent light filtering performance is just as important to you as not filtering all the money out of your wallet, the B+W ND .6 F-Pro SC neutral density filter is for you. The SC variant of B+W's neutral density filters offer many of the advantages of the more expensive MRC version at about half the cost. If money is an object, but you still demand top-on-the-line filtration, the B+W ND .6 F-Pro neutral density filter is for you.
You still get B+W's excellent neutral density performance which means no color casting despite the lower price point. Since this filter is in the F-Pro line it comes with front-threaded brass rings, just like the MRC version. And, as the "SC" denotes, this filter's glass is only single-coated on each side to help reduce flair and make it easier to clean, however you might find that it does not perform as well as the MRC variety where flare is concerned. Most budget filters don't have even a single coating, much less coat both sides.
