Cant get a straight answer on this. I've rented #8 Tiffen filters for most of my shoots for some time now, thought it was time to buy some.

They arrive designated #8 Yellow 2

They look slightly deeper yellow that the ones I've been renting (from memory - I may be wrong),as you would expect from e.g. a Tobacco 2 over a Tobacco 1, but Tiffen say its the same hue/saturation as the original #8

Anyone know for sure the significance of the '2' please?

Hi Tony, a #8 Yellow is also known as a Wratten K2 - I don't know if that explains it or not.

(I just looked at my Tiffen Deep Yellow # 15 - it says "Orange" on the ring, even though it's yellow by my definition -- well then some oranges are a bit yellow on the outside but when I hear yellow I think lemon :D )
