Subject: Re: [Leica] Heliopan filter

To whom ever originally posted the question regarding Heliopan filters:

I have three filters that I use with my M6:  Leica UV, B+W Light Red, and a
Heliopan circular polarizer (all size E39).  They all appear to be fine
filters.  Which one is the better brand?  Who knows?  I was always under the
impression that these three brands represent the best quality in filters (save
Zeiss).  For all I know, they could come out of the same factory!   I've got
to believe there is some cross-over with certain filters.  I'm sure each
company doesn't manufacture each and every filter themselves.

If your dealer gave you a heliopan filter, relax, its a decent filter
(expensive too)!!
