    I assume that Schneider's IIIb centre filter doesn't cause this problem. Do you have a sense of whether Rodenstock's E67/86 centre filter would also work with respect to clearance, or is...

    What's happening in cinematography is that a somewhat hard digital look is being diffused with filtration. Not in every shot, but when desired. Tiffen ProMist is a popular option.
