    I am thinking of coming to B&H in NYC with a friend and am in the market of 3 or 4 IR filters in varying sizes and wavelengths. Does B&H have a good assortment of sizes of IR filters in the showroom, or do these have to ordered and shipped from the warehouse?

    I can't say for B&H's stock, but wouldn't it be better to stick to one size and use stepping rings?
    That way you can try each filter with any of your lenses.
    If you then find one lens/filter combination the works particularly well, consider getting the right size filter if the stepping rings prove awkward.

    Hello,

    With the amount of filters we carry, specific model numbers would be best to check store inventory. many specialty filters are Special Order.
