    Not all filters had perfect pairings, so you will see that we sometimes compared 1/4 and full filters, and sometimes compared 1/2 and fulls. The Pro-Mist filters were very heavy, so we decided to additionally test the 1/8 variants, which seem to be the most popular choice anyway. At the end, we also tested a few additional filters on the 32mm focal length that we thought were interesting.

    Classic Soft (1/4, 1)
