Tokina 11-16 lens and Hoya R72 IR Filter

I did some testing yesterday and result shows no hotspot issues with this lens-filter combination. A sample shot:

I would suggest though that to minimize potential hotspots, try to stop down the exposure.

Exposure Time = 2 secs
F Number = F11
ISO Speed Ratings = 200
Focal Length = 11mm

Crumpler Whickey and Cox

My Tamrac Velocity 8x is complaining from the abuse so I went to the nearest Crumpler outlet and bought a The Whickey & Cox. Awesome backpack, I must say! But I still can't get around the fact that this bag costs almost as a Nikon SB-600 flash.

So for casual urban stroll, I'll use my Tamrac and use the Crumpler for serious photoshoots.

Hoya R72 77mm IR Filter (Part 2)

I receive this item today. So leadtime is 12 days including weekends. From HK post to Lapu-lapu post, it's 8 days. Not bad for free shipping.

My next step would be to play with this filter during next week ;-) as during April 4 to April 12, I only have 1 working day. Woohooo! Hopefully, this filter and my Tokina UWA will make a good match.
