The improvements of the new series at a glance

Since Stephan Wiesner is very good with the previous models is familiar and uses it often, he finds right at the beginning of the test that in relation to the handling has done some things. The new F:X Pro Magnetic Round Filter Mark II are due to cutouts on the individual filters grippier than the predecessors. The photographer particularly likes this because it is now much easier to use the filters to separate from each other or these also in cold weather on to attach the lens. The professional photographer is relieved that the filter type on the new models frame visible is.

Another change concerns the size of the filters: the diameter has been increased, so that even with very wide-angle lenses hardly any vignetting is available.

Die alte Version nutze ich und es ist ein Bereicherung und vor allem wenn man Step-Up Ringe nutzt. Für mich ein Manko: Der metallische Grundring, auf den die Filter geheftet werden, den gibt es leider nicht einzeln zu kaufen, um damit einige Objektive vor dem Ausflug mit zu bestücken. Oder- was ich hatte, man sucht ihn wieder auf einem der Objektive für die Weiterverwendung. Wenn man 2-3 Basisringe im Set hätte oder nachordern könnte, wäre wunderbar (Stand Filterset MK 1)
