    Anyone using ND filter with 50mm Summilux wide open?

    I know some people like to use a ND filter with the Noctilux shooting wide open during the day to get some cool separation effects, and I am wondering if people are doing the same with the Summilux and if so does anyone have any examples to post? Also, what strength ND filter are you using?

    Thanks,

    Peter

    Yes - I love to shoot wide open; so I usually have to use a ND Filter:

    I use the B&W ND Filter 46 103 which works quite well in all situations.

    I use the B+W ND .9 filter on the 35 Lux when shooting wide open in the middle of the day....

    Yep, and I even use a B+W #103 on my 35/2 sometimes. If you love shooting wide open, these ND filters are a must for daytime shooting. Sometimes ISO 160 and 1/4000 doesn't cut it.

    No, but I just posted about using one on the 1,1/50 Nokton.

    You use it on the 35 Lux (latest vers.?) - me too. But unfortunately the lens hood does not fit then. You have got an idea?

    No, I have the ASPH I and it fits perfectly under the hood.

    I just used one for the first time today with the 35 Lux ASPH II, and worked well under the hood. Hadn't used it before, but liked it. I set white balance with a grey card, but still had to make a minor adjustment in Lightroom to reduce the color temperature.
