Cheap way to do UV photography

Hi all,

I have an full spectrum converted camera (Sony NEX7) and I love it. Playing with multiple filters, not just IR, but color filters like Hoya yellow, orange or red, is super cool!

But recently I decided to try UV with it. I got two cheap filters on eBay, one ZWB1 and one ZWB2 and it kind of works but there is a lot of infrared leakage on those.

I know that I can get for example an Baader U filter that has no leak, but it’s more expensive than my camera and lenses

So, I was wondering:

1) Does anyone knows a cheaper alternative to the Baader filter?

2) Does anyone knows a cheap “IR cut” filter that doesn’t UV cut?
