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)
