Spectro testing the front Canon filter

Since publishing some tranmission graphs last year which clearly show that the front filter ( the one usually left behind when the colour balance filter is removed for the "mod") acts as a very good UV-IR cut filter, I've been beat up by the guys in the States who say an additional UV-IR "replacement" filter is the ONLY way to go......
Obviously I disagree.
I managed to set up the MG80 spectroscope this morning and test a separate front filter element ( removed from a 1000D).
Surprise, surprise it shows exactly the same...
The attached file gives details.
Feedback and comments welcome.

nice bit of work Ken. probably won't alter the opinions of those who value opinion over data.
