Schneider DIGITAL+ UV Haze 1x super-coated

I was searching for 49mm UV filter, also lens protector, for my Asahi Pentax SMC Takumar 50mm f/1.4 . Luckily, I found it in ptt(BBS in Taiwan) and get the filter this morning. It's Schneider DIGITAL+ UV Haze 1x super-coated 49mm.



I spent NTD450. to get this second-hand Schneider DIGITAL+ UV filter today. 

But it's quite tricky that the official website of Schneider has no such a product line. The filter marked "Schneider" on its official website, it's for industrial use, not for the end-user like me, and the ring color is silver, not in black.

Schneider sells filter marked "B+W", its subsidiary,  throughout the world. You won't find ANY "Schneider UV Filter" in ebay, Amazon...etc, but only "B+W filter", except in Taiwan. Quite strange huh?

The color of this filter is burgundy red, quite beautiful.

This is it, Schneider filter. DIGITAL+

I'm gonna to ask Schneider for this stupid question, hoping to have a official reply.

As the official reply, we can see that this is not a fake or knock-off product from China or Taiwan factory.

IT IS A SCHNEIDER PRODUCT, MADE IN GERMANY, SELLING ONLY IN TAIWAN(R.O.C.).

I'm so glad to be a Taiwanese~~~


=======================================
原本在找尋49mm口徑的保護鏡要給Asahi Pentax SMC Takumar 50mm f/1.4 使用。很幸運地在ptt上找到友人剛好要賣二手的,是Schneider DIGITAL+ UV Haze 1x super-coated 49mm。

這只濾鏡花了我450元。但很奇妙的是,Schneider的官網上面並沒有這項產品,而且標示著Schneider濾鏡的則是給工業上使用的,而非給我們這種一般消費者使用。

Schneider賣的濾鏡是標示著B+W,這家分公司(實際上已經只是個品牌了),而B+W是世界各地都看得到的品牌,找不到其他地方包括ebay, Amazon...等地方有標示"Schneider"濾鏡的。這只Schneider濾鏡就只有在台灣販賣,超級的奇怪。

而透過官方的回覆,總算解開難題了。

這只濾鏡是官方特地為了見喜有限公司所做的特製化的濾鏡,所以這只濾鏡的確是由Schneider總公司所做,而且也是Made in Germany的~

非常慶幸台灣有此榮幸~
