I am going to be using a ND filter and 85 filter on my Angenieux 12-120.

This might sound like a silly question - Am I best placing the ND before the 85 or after it on the front of the lens?

I have not bothered with this before, but I am curious if there is any "text book" method here.

Thanks for any help.

Matt

I dont know if it makes any diference at the end, i do always place 85 on the first stage holder closest to the lens, maybe to be always shure that iit is there, after that just add anything else. Or you could use a Tiffen combo ( 85ND6, 85ND9 etc)

For a single filter, use the combo filters (85N3, 85N6, 85N9):

"Stacking" filters risks added flare and internal reflections between the filters.
