The T1 IR filter works as advertised but should not be considered as a permanent lens filter, only when needed. For most of your shooting let your EX1 or EX3 wear the usual UV/protector filter. Even though the newer EX series cameras have modified hot mirrors to make the T! filter redundant, I still find that there is a slight difference when I use it on my EX1R for a scene that has a great deal of man-made black material.

I can't speak to the PMW-320 or 350.

Why would you say it isn't "permanent"?

I've had mine on since I bought it...I haven't found a situation where I thought it's effects were a problem of any kind...

[Tim Kolb] "Why would you say it isn't "permanent"?"

Because it cuts down the available light by 9% whereas a UV/protector filter is only 3%. This may not be considered a problem for people that shoot with their own lighting but for the event folks a 9% reduction of ambient light is substantial. Do a test and you'll see what I mean.

Ah...I see. yes, I'm not doing event work, so the slight loss I noticed (I'm surprised that it's 9% actually) really wasn't a big deal for me.
