Oil Filter

Was wondering if any of the other members here have used Amsoil filters on there V8 Camaros. I changed oil last year in mine @ 1,400 miles and the filter leaked a few drops. I took off and replaced with K&N no more problems. Sent back filter too them they replaced and sent me a quart of oil to replace what I lost in the switch out. So went to change this year with the replacement filter and it leaks too visually the filters look fine not sure why they are leaking anyone else have this problem.

Is it just the Amsoil filters that leak? If so, then I'd stick with the K&N. I use 'em and they work.
