Of course, I would absolutely HATE stealing business from B&H
(yeah, right :-)).  However, I have three brand-new, in-box
Min*lta 49mm UV filters which any Olympian/Zuik is welcome to
for the much more reasonable sum of US$12 apiece.

I also have 3 used Min*lta 49mm UV filters, 4 used P*ntax 49mm
SKY filters, 3 used P*ntax 49mm UV filters, and 3 used Olympus
49mm SKY 1A filters available, all in great shape -- for US$8
apiece.  Shipping is at cost, probably less than $1 apiece in
Cont. US.

Now, B&H -- beat this!  (Oh, I was going to write something
like: "B&H, eat my shorts!"  However, the recent flood of calls
for cleaner language on this list had a grave impact on me. :-))

Btw, I have a bunch of other high quality used 49/55mm filters:
Hoya, Vivitar, Tiffen, etc. -- cheap!  Pls request a list.
