The seller has nearly 9,000 ebay transactions and 99.9% satisfaction rating so I would think you're on fairly solid ground here. I would not hesitate.

Looks ok to me .. buyers on Ebay are pretty quick to give a negative for any little thing these days (since the seller can't respond in kind)and no one has complained about them not being genuine.

The watermark on the image suggests that this is an online store, rather than an individual. With such high positive feedback, plus the added security of being able to buy using Paypal suggests that if it's what you want, they are a fairly reliable source. My own feeling is that you can buy with confidence from this seller.

My brother recently bought one that looked like that from UK on Ebay and it turned out to be really fake. The backside specs actually describes a UV-filter instead and the filter says "Pixel" and not Kenko. I can ask him what the seller was called.

I bought a 62mm thread version of this filter from one of the members here for £20.00 + postage, so at this price you are in no danger of being ripped off. Kenko are a good brand, and they make lovely coffee too!!

I don't think you are being asked to pay the earth here, so if you want it, buy it.
