    I only have 2 filters as well. 2 UV's one for each lens. I really just have them as lens protectors.

    I only have two as well. Well, I have three, but I've only bought two. One came with a lens. So the two filters... A circular polarizer and an ND4.

    My two top choices are a yellow/green for B/W film and FX1 (soft focus) for color portraits

    That would be my pick as well. And if we could only have 3 I'd add yellow as that's all I really ever use at all anymore.

    Well I guess a polarizer is a universal choice. I'm assuming that with didgital my 80A filter is no longer needed (youwhite balance dig correct?)

    I'm planning on picking up a circular polarizer and a UV filter for each lens. What is an IR filter? Infra-Red? How does that work?
