Macro lenses are not an issue as it is easy to add a reflective filter that blocks UV and IR. That type of filter is only good for a FOV of 60 degrees or less. Right now, I'm personally concerned with the 10-17, split shots, and possibly a midrange zoom like the Sigma 18-50. I may want a rectilinear wide but not immediately.
Craig. What lens are you shooting with? Unless it is quartz glass, the lens itself should act as a UV cut (unless it's a really, really old manual lens). Also, from what I've read in the UV shooters forums, the 300 chip isn't sensitive in the NUV, stripped or not.
What is the nm range in the maxmax NIR pass filter you had installed.
It sounds like a fun experiment. Keep us posted on your findings.
I'd like information to be useful to more than one body, lens, or strobe. If there is information that current lenses do not pass UV or that some DSLR sensors aren't sensitive to UV I'd love to see it. What UV shooters forum are you referring to?
If lenses do not pass UV then I don't understand why the hot mirror blocks UV. I suppose it could be for compatibility with some lenses but I'd really like to see details. If lenses have blocked UV for some time then why are there haze filters? I would love not having to tape a UV Haze filter onto the back of my 10-17. UV does exist underwater and it could be detrimental to split shots.
I did not install any MaxMax filter, the conversion I used is clear glass only. For my IR testing I am using a 62mm Hoya R72 on a macro lens.
