Have you tried it with a UV pass filter? I'm thinking about a conversion, and would like to do some UV shooting alongside the usual IR stuff.

All the lenses I have are glass, and although perhaps an older adapted lens might work other than as a curiosity it hasn't been on my radar. And the filters aren't cheap. More than the lens I'd probably use by a factor of two.

But I've seen some very interesting macro work done, so perhaps.

Be nice if Kolari et al rented the UV filters. But I don't think so.

Yeah, I get that. And I get that lenses with UV filtration included, well, won't work well. But it's something I'll look into when the time comes. By superzoom, it turns out, isn't the best choice for IR conversion. The lense produces a serious hot spot.
