This has been extensively discussed here and elsewhere. The following two threads may help to explain the problem. If you do a search for "IR" or "infrared" you'll no doubt find more.
I have heard that there is a possibility of colour shift and colour contamination to the image if one uses a lot of ND s. i.e. the proportion of IR increases as you reduce the visible spectrum reaching the chip. I'm new to the Red but as it seems comfortable rated at 320ASA then in harsh daylight you would want to use a 1.2 ND to get your exposure down to where any lens will perform best at around 5.6 or much more for wider stops for selective DOF. Is this a problem and how do you correct it?
I doubt you'd have too many problems using a 1.2 ND.
