Which ND filter (2,4,8....) do you use the most?
Aug 3, 2012

Hi all,

I was wondering (as the title suggests) which ND filter you use the most and think is worthwhile owning. ND2, 4, 8, 16, 32....... or a variable ND filter?

I have the 45mm 1.8 (37mm filter size) and the 20mm 1.7 and 14mm 2.5 (both 46mm). I was thinking it might be sensible it to get a cheap step-up ring (37-46mm) and then invest in one or more 46mm ND filters. Or does it makes any sense to go bigger than 46mm?

By the way, would you still use a hood on the 45mm if you had an ND filter attached? I guess that would possibly depend on the f-stop reduction?

Cheers,
Andrew
