Thanks for the replies to an earlier posting on which centre filter I needed - I went for the IIIc. I thought some of you might be interested to know that whilst sorting out this purchase with Robert White, I happened to mention that I was also looking for a 77mm Orange filter (for b&w). Hoya HMC (that I usually buy) Orange filters retail at about £52.00 here in the UK, but I asked if Robert could tell me how much it would cost for say, a Heliopan (better quality I thought). Imagine my surprise when he replied that he has a shipment of the latest B+W MRC filters at good prices. I still waited for the shock of the price.....£45.00 UK pounds!!!!! This is less than half the RRP!! and a whole £22.00 UK pounds cheaper than another well-known UK discount dealer. And what's more he has loads of sizes and types (drawers full actually!!). They are the latest type with the scratch-resistant coating...needless to say I bought it!! I am in no way connected with Robert White, but thought that such a deal needed to be "advertised" to fello users of the forum. Best wishes Paul
