    I just got my B+W filter today and realized something; do I have to register my filter to get the 10 year warranty? This is my first B+W so I have no idea.

    Thanks

    I've only ever bought B+W filters used so I've never had a warranty and have never needed one.

    I'd say a visit to their web site would be in order:

    Hmmm... never heard of that. I've bought probably a half-dozen or more of my B+Ws new and never noticed anything about registering...

    Warranty? That wouldn't cover damage, or scratching, so what is left? It's a non-moving part made up of glass and a piece of metal.

    Somehow seems like they can offer a 10 year warranty as there's no chance in heck of someone making a legitimate claim for it.
