    95mm ND filter recommendation please?

    I would also check the filter rim thickness as bought a Sigma ceramic protection filter. The rim was too thick for the lens hood so had to unscrew to reverse or remount.

    Need advice/feedback for the Gitzo GH1382QD Series 1 Center Ball Head

    I have the Gitzo GH1382QD ball head on my Gitzo traveller and liked it so much I ended up buying the series 3 for my GT3542LS Only issue I have is the knobs seem to loosen of themselves and can drop off. Tighten up as I pack up and do the same before I venture out on another trip

    EOS R and 135 L issue?

    Used the 135 F2 and the R at a gig end of last year - someone else had mentioned 135/R issues in a post around the same time.

    EOS R, Canon BG-E22 Battery Grip review?

    I've not seen any reviews but bought one as soon as it was available. It definitely helps on the bigger lenses. Since I bought the 28-70 I very rarely use the R without it. After a shooting session I just plug into the USB and give it a top up

    Apologies for the late reply, been a bit busy of late. I can concur with what he was experiencing with the 100-400 and the R in low light.
