Schneider 58 XL center filter cheapest source?greenspun.com : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread
I recently acquired a Schneider 58mm Super Angulon XL. It takes the 3b center filter.
Does anyone know a good source for the Schneider filter at a low price? I was quoted $470 (plus tax) at one dealer, which is rather annoying, considering the lens itself was only about $1100.

Lloyd, Try Robert White in the UK. The center filters are much lower than here.
The 58XL center filter is 160pounds - or $230 at present exchange rates. Here's the URL: http://www.robertwhite.co.uk/lenses.htm Click on center filters under Schneider.

I use the Heliopan equivalent for the same lens and it works great. I bought mine from B&H.

I would normally say Robert White or Christoph Greiner, but if you're only buying one item the shipping cost will add considerably to the total price. Call Badger Graphics (800-558-5350) and get a price from them also, they have "Gray Market" Schneider goods and may beat Robert White's price (+shipping) after the dust settles.

Thanks, Badger Graphics has it for $225, but not in stock for about 2 weeks.
