Question re filters

I believe that AF doesnt work with IR filters, and from my experience UV, 1A/1B seem ok.
Im thinking of getting a polarising filter and so was wondering about that.


Thanks
Chris.

You're right.. focusing with IR filters is near impossible, it's pretty much guesswork trial and error.

But I have a UV and a polarising filter and AF works well with these in place. I've also had no problems using AF with a UV, Polarising, 3x ND and graduated grey filter all stacked.
