B+W of­fers two edi­tions of its 10-stop ND fil­ter. Both have a re­as­sur­ing weight, de­spite their thin pro­file, ow­ing to the in­clu­sion of high-qual­ity glass plus brass mounts. The MRC ver­sion, which we’re re­view­ing here, fea­tures dirt-, wa­ter- and scratch-re­sis­tant multi-coat­ings in­stead of a sin­gle coat­ing, and is about 30 per cent dearer to buy.

Fit­ting the fil­ter to our Nikon lenses with 77mm at­tach­ment threads proved a lit­tle tricky and fid­dly at first but got eas­ier over time. One thing that re­mained con­stant, how­ever, is that the B+W gave a no­tice­able red tint to im­ages cap­tured on both the D7000 and D610 cam­eras we used for test­ing. Colour ac­cu­racy was ac­tu­ally much bet­ter from the Tif­fen fil­ter, which costs far less money to buy.

This slim-line piece of Ger­man en­gi­neer­ing is sur­pris­ingly weighty
