I kind of suspected that was the real issue. So the initial rejection should have been for "Bad Info", not "Poor Aesthetic Quality".

I admit--I eyeballed it to start, and received a rejection for "horizon unlevel-leaning left". That's a mistake on my part.

Agreed, Joe. No sense cheaping out by screwing an Amazon Basics filter onto an expensive NIKKOR lens. Besides, Bezos has enough money--he doesn't need mine.
