The b+w 52mm XS-Pro digital ND Varo mrc-nano filter is a solid variable neutral Density filter providing an exposure reduction of 1 to 5 stops. The 0.3 to 1.5 Density creates a darkening of the entire image, allowing you to photograph with a wider aperture or slower shutter speed than normally required. The degree of density is easily controlled by rotating the front filter ring, helping you to predetermine the additional exposure length required. By slowing your exposure time or increasing your aperture, you are able to control depth of field and convey movement more easily. For easier, repeatable control over Density settings, The front ring is also visually demarcated with dots that represent different Density values.The multi-resistant coating (MRC) is both an anti-reflection coating as well as a protective surface. It helps to increase light transmission by reducing reflections, scattered light, and ghosting. Additionally, it offers greater protection to the filter substrate and stays cleaner for longer than uncoated filters. The Nano coating associated with XS-Pro filters provides an additional eighth layer over the MRC, resulting in an improved beading effect when in contact with water for greater cleaning efficiency.B+w filters are constructed from Schott glass for increased optical clarity and color fidelity. This filter features a thin, oversized mount which helps to reduce the likelihood to vignetting when used with wide-angle lenses. The filter ring is made from brass for durability as well as jamming prevention.

From B+W procedure, "The B+W ND Vario filters are oversized. Hence the difference between the lens connector thread and the front connector of the filter."

In my case the B+W 52mm XS-Pro Digital Vario Neutral Density ND Filter correctly threads onto the 52mm thread mount on my lens but will not accept any other 52mm filters on the front of the filter as the front is threaded 55mm. This information does not appear in the Amazon vendor product description nor does it appear on the Schneider Optics web page describing the the filter. The only place I have found this data is in the general information BW_brochure.pdf linked on the Schneider Optics web page.

See table below for guidance: (it appeared the front thread is always one size larger than the lens thread)
