As I suspected, this variable filter is good for seeing what the effect will produce, but not so good optically. The center of this image if okay, but the edges fall apart.

Alas, this was my conclusion as well. Fortunately, I ordered mine from Amazon, so they -- I bought two sizes -- were quickly and easily returned.

Oh, and congrats on the camera purchase!
