Astronomik Clip filters for Canon EOS slr cameras

Does anyone have any experience using or information on the use and quality of these Astronomik clip filters. I saw them advertised on Bintel webpage in new products Listings.tony.

If they are as good as the Hutech 'front' filters and I don't doubt that at all, they will work well. Where they really come into their own is they are usable with any lens (except the S type). They also keep the dust off your sensor. The only sad thing is a 5D cannot take one of these filters as there is nothing to fix it to.

They won't fit on a 40D either, as the 40D has a different interchangable focussing screen holder/clip to the 10/20/30/300/350/400D.

I emailed the people in Germany and they said they are thinking about making a version that fits the 40D.

As for the 1D and 5D, they have a larger mirror which will hit the filter when the mirror swings up.
