Yes but if you jsut want a bottomless is $85.00.  I like the 15* angle of the PF.  It helps to prevent dinging up the group head as a traditional PF puts your hand into an un-natural position.  My old group had several little dings from striking it with the PF when trying to insert the PF half asleap.

The porta filters that come with the V2B also have an angled handle on them. However, it does not come with a bottomless portafilter.

I do see they are angled but I don't think it's quite the 15* slope is it?  I'm just judging from videos and photos.  At any rate I guess it's a matter of opinion.  I like that it's totally stainless.  It's a lot easier to clean.  They also claim that because it's stainless you don't really need to use espresso machine cleaner.  You can just use a bit of soap and water and the oils wipe right off.  This was the case with La Marzocco Pf's as well.  It you have ever seen the inside of old used PF's you would probably agree that it's a good investment.

I prefer a chromed brass portafilter for the thermal characteristics

Well, this is not the first time that the angle has come up so I went and measured mine. I would put the angle at 12.5 on the stock portafilters.

I know that LM uses stainless with the GS3 and according to them the stainless is a better choice as it heats up faster and that there is really no apprciable difference in thermal stability.  I'm not saying I believe that but I doubt there is really enough of a difference that one would notice in the cup.  But again... it's personal preference.

Even better... the GS3 also has a completely stainless group.  Coffee oils just wipe off with a damp cloth.  Naturally I backflushed with espresso cleaner as you would but still...... very cool idea.  Again one would think that if La Marzocco is willing to use stainless in their group design as well as their PF's they can't be too concerned about thermal stability playing a huge part in the taste that lands in your cup.
