    For three stop I like B+W or Heliopan. I wanted a four-stop, so went with Leica's filter, mainly because the Heliopan was back-ordered everywhere.

    Presumably your noct sports an ND filter on occasion?

    Is that one reason to add another stop from 3?

    Yup, 3 stops, f/0.95, 1/4000 the second and the base ISO of 200 on the M-D still has me overexposing in very bright conditions. That fourth stop makes all the difference.
