K&F Variable ND Filter Good Landscape Filter
I purchased the K&F Concept Variable ND Filter Neutral Density ND2-ND400 (9 stops) with Rotating Ring to be able to use a fast ND with different densities.
The packaging is very well done, solid and space-saving container. The glass filter is light and the ring to increase/decrease the density is smooth. It has no end stop lock.

To test it best I tried it with three different lenses on the Nikon D750 camera (full frame): 20mm, 35mm and 85mm.
- 20mm: in the photos taken with the filter there is no particular loss of sharpness, it introduces a slight hot dominant that can be easily solved in post-production. As far as the X-shape problem is concerned, it is quite marked using the filter beyond the marked ring. Instead, using it within the marked marking, the problem is little present. See image attached.
- 35mm: in the photos taken with the filter there is no particular loss of sharpness, it introduces a slight hot dominant that can be easily solved in post-production. As far as the problem is concerned, X-shape is not as marked as in the previous one, but there is a vignetting especially in the use with maximum effect. See image attached.
- 85mm: in the photos taken with the filter there is no particular loss of sharpness, it introduces a slight hot dominant that can be easily solved in post-production. As far as the X-shape and vignetting problem are concerned, they are not relevant. See image attached.

Optically, the filter is well made and provides excellent results, but I would have preferred a start and end run with lock in order to avoid possible mistakes. Also considering that K&F produces other types of filters but with magnetic connection, I think it could be a further plus for this filter.

The price/performance ratio is correct based on the performance provided.

I attach more photos of the packaging and two shots to the sea.
