I'm looking for a variable or single factor (not a grad) ND filter up to 8 stops. I have checked reviews on Cokin P series filters and 77mm screw-in filters. Most reviewers complain of a magenta color cast on all, and the dreaded X factor on the varibles, even on the high-end brands. I know that some folks are stacking ND filters, but I don't like the idea of adding so many glass or resin surfaces in front of my lenses. Can anyone recommend a brand that does not have these problem?

I have read the article to which Jon had posted the link. Although the author reported on the test of only two filter brands, the article seems to confirm the other reviews I read regarding the color cast and X-factor. My conclusion is that it would be best to use a single factor filter, and adjust for any color cast in PP.

I would appreciate any comments, suggestions, etc. Thanks.

A. J.
