Also how much does ND filter effect sharpness. Is it better to have diffraction or not ?

ND filter is actually useful for movies. Leave it in 'auto' and it will never get engaged when shooting stills.

Rapick,

I had to check my camera (RX10 V) to be certain, but that's an incorrect statement. The ND filter will engage when shooting stills and the filter is set to auto. I tested in aperture priority mode. I assume that would also be the case in other modes, but didn't check.

According to your test, at which EV value does the ND filter automatically engage? Or it does following some different criterion? Just curious, because I never found this happening in my RX100 III - Maybe a defective unit?
