    I like to do long exposures for landscapes, and I'm curious if people have been able to do them successfully with the PENs. I usually do about 4+ minute exposures.

    Does all focusing need to be done prior to putting on the ND filter, or will the display be able to compensate? Any other issues I need to know of?

    I use ND filters for waterfall shots all the time. Never had any issues with it. Used a 4 stop and 3 stop together today and it auto focused fine.

    One of the advantages of CDAF.

    Note that you can also use linear polarizers instead of circular too.

    One thing I would point out is to make sure IBIS is off as it will generate heat over that long exposure.

    Got it. Thanks guys.

    Just need to order a cable release and either a new ND filter for smaller threads, step-up rings, or lens adapter.... Should be really nice to hike with this system though.
