Asked by: felipe
No, unfortunately there are no 86mm Grade 1 Glimmerglass filters. I even checked their website and it's something they don't have on there either.

I want this filter for my fujifilm 35mm f2, but it seems rare to find and it doesn't seem like a lot of people have it. Is there a reason for it? I can still get it for my 16-80 but prefer 35mm for street.

Do you know what the equivalent strength of the 1 on this filter is? I was just on set where we used 1/8 in 4 x 5.65 and I liked the strength
Asked by: Christopher
The Tiffen Glimmerglass 1/8 Filter is not made in a screw on type. That is a very low density. The 77mm circular ones come in 1, 3 and 5. So those will have a stronger effect compared to the 1/8.

Is there any light loss?

Is there any light loss?
Asked by: Zak
From testing in the store, we saw no visible change in exposure, likely indicating a 1x filter factor and almost complete light transmission (minus any potential loss from coatings and glimmerglass particulates).

I'd like to order a Tiffen GlimmerGlass 49 filter for a Leica Q3 I have on order. What threads option and grade do I need?
Asked by: Joseph
The Leica Q3 accepts 49mm filters. Regarding the GlimmerGlass grade that you need it depends on how much of an effect you want in the image. How soft you want the skin to be, how much you want the highlights to bloom. For a very small amount just to cut out some of the sharpness of the digital sensor I would recommend the 1/4 grade.
