B+W is a very good brand, as well as Hoya, and a little cheaper but still decent is Tiffen. also consider many of the cheap offbrand filters do not have front threads if you will want to stack other filters on.
www.bhphotovideo.com is a reputable dealer with a very big selection if you want to see whats available

Digital Optics and Opteka are not the top brands for your S9000. You would do well to consider Olympus (TCON-17 (telephoto) or WCON-07 (wide angle)) or some of the Raynox. There are other reputable brands available. Scan through this forum (Add-On Lenses) and you'll find other discussions on both the Digital Optics / Opteka as well assome good add-on brands. Also take a look at Pemaraal Online (http://www.pemaraal.com/index.html ) for some examples and reasonable choice of lenses and filters. Good lenses will run you around $100US (give or take...)

Digital Optics and Opteka Brands are not middle brands, They are as poor as poor can be. They are as bad as the new one called "Professional" that you'll find on e-bay.
