    Not completely idiotic, but could be close. :eek:)
    You might consider that for b&w photography the UV filter is
    doing what many of us use it for all the time; to protect the front
    surface of the lens.
    Unless you are playing games with color temperature on color
    film, you do not need the UV filter ganged with any other filter.
    I usually do not gang filters, so remove the UV when using any
    other filter...most of the time you wouldn't know it was there but if
    a wide-angle zoom is involved, the ganged filter holders could occult
    the corners of the photograph.

    this might be a stuped question but please forgive me;)

    I just bought a hoya red filter for use with b&w film
    my question is should I also use the Uv-have filter on top of that
    or is that completly idiotic?

    Just the red. Depending on what you're looking for you might want to get
    something a little less extreme.

  5. No. The red filter already filters out UV, which is beyond blue.

  7. If you really want to know, try it both ways.

    Yea 97.98% of the time it will not make any noticeable difference.
