Hey..another query of mine before i commit myself to buy this piece of glass. I read some other forums on the usage of 10 stop filter and realised some of them had diffculty seeing the image from the viewfinder and had to pre-focus it before putting on the filter. but i assume they used it on evening or at dim surrounding?

On bright daytime shdnt have this problem rite? Can be used on AF rite? Not MF hor?

More or less a 10 stop filter will bring light down to insane levels making AF very iffy. You need to use MF and also learn how to use hyperfocal distance.

you can't see anything through the viewfinder.

you precompose, prefocus and shoot in MF on a tripod.
