Hi all,

I already have my Planar coded, my question is do I really need the UV/IR??? because in the M8.2 setup I can select in "Lens Detection" ON instead ON+UV/IR.....



Cheers,
Ricardson

On focal lengths over 35mm (and even including often times) you don't really need to code your lenses; at least for corrections. Though it is nice to have the focal length used in the EXIF info of your images.

As for the UV/IR filter, on the M8 bodies it's probably a good idea to suck it up and keep one on there. The "magenta issue" affects all focal lengths and you never know when it will rear its ugly head. Worse yet, there's no real easy way to fix the problem in post short of converting the image to black and white. Of course, if you plan to convert anyway - leaving the UV/IR filter off would be perfectly okay and some consider it beneficial to do so.
