Do I even need "multicoating" on a warming filter. > > Randy Holst > Boise, Idaho http://www.2filter.com/prices/BWfilters.html B+W will make any filter multicoated (and it will say MC on the side but you need to special order it and wait a month of two to get it). I'd call it an admirable quest. Personally I think the 81A is plenty warm for modern films typical needs if that. Mark Rabiner The fellow above will set you up. I believe the 81A,B,C,D are in 100 K warming increments but other filter companies call theirs other names like CR, or WM so you can get the equivalent filter as that company makes it. B+W has I think both the 81 series but then it's own delineation which might be more extensive.
