Just spoke to Top Teks in the UK and they have had their first 4 T1 filters come in, and go straight out. More are on order. They are quoting £60 plus £6 postage plus VAT and will put your name down against future stock.

I ordered this from Top Teks about two weeks ago, it is being delivered today. Put your name on their pre-order list, they will ring you when it becomes available.

Just as I finished posting my previous reply, the courier delivered my Tiffen filter from Top Teks. It is the slim version with only the lens thread, but that is no problem as I do not intend to use extra filters.

I also received an extra battery BP-U60 from another supplier, I can't get over the price of this £192. In my opinion this is a downright rip-off, but unfortunately I need the battery for my assignment in Africa next month.

Why didn't you get the swit battery ? It's about half the price, same capacity and has a D-tap outlet.

From what I have read it is also about twice the size and the lead is for the EX1.

No it's not twice the size, just a tiny bit bigger, the EX1 and EX3 swit battery is the same except that the EX3 version has a slightly longer lead.

I've had mine on order with Top-Teks for weeks. Got a phone call yesterday telling me they had one with my name on it. Just waiting for it to arrive (next day is always two days to the Isle of Man) plus the boats and flights were cancelled yesterday due to the Force Nine Gale winds and rain, we had :) so thats probably slowed things further.

Hello All,
I have just completed a shoot and used the Tiffen IR filter and my black's on dinner suites are dark and rich and really stand out with the whites of the shirts. I am glad I purchased this filter as the event I have just covered they had black tablecloths. This is the coating that Sony should have included into the camera's ND filters and no one would have a problem.

I can really recommend this Filter it is a must have for EX1/3 owners

Thanks Lance ... I'm still waiting for an email stating mine is on it's way. I have no idea when it will be sent but ASAP is best. I recently shot a jazz performance and invariably the blacks looked brown.

Hi Dean,
A word of caution if you are using a matte box with the 4x4 version do not leave any another filter attached to the camera lens as you will suffer from secondary reflection onto the 4x4.

Well, my Tiffen T1 IR Filter has just arrived, from Top-Teks! It has a thread front and back. However it fits perfectly under the lens hood. Did a couple of test shots on a shirt I know turned brown/red and it is now a deep rich black, just as youíd see with the naked eye! Brilliant!
