Filters and lens hoods for 12f2 and 45f1.8?
I want to shoot in bright sunlight + snow at high altitude (mountaineering) and on the water (sailing dinghies).
A marumi CP filter and the excellent lens hoods of my E420 took care for this until now. With my OMD and the 45 mm, max shutter speed of 1/4000 is limiting my aperture choice on the water.
Hoya offers a relatively cheap set with UV, CP and 3 stop ND filter. Is the quality ok or is it better to buy a B+W CP and ND filter separately?
Is it a good idea to buy a set up ring 37/46 mm and buy the filters in 46 mm thread only? Is it still possible to use the JCC bayonet hood on the 45 with the step up ring and a CP filter?
Any experience with the JCC 3in 1 screw on silicone hoods? It probably won't work with the 12 mm, but could be fine with the 45mm.
After some reading i came to this conlusion:
CP filter in 37 mm from B+W. ( only for the 45 mm, because artefacts are to be expected with a CP on the 12mm)
3 stop ND filter in 46 mm for the 12 mm
Skip the lens hoods and use my hands for shade.
Any other thoughts or advice?
