    What would happen if they were all close up lenses like +1, +2 etc. I wonder at what point does the image degrade.

    Beats fishing through a box of loose filters at the flea market.

    Any 55mm Yellow filters in there. No.

    Although this stack is overdone for the purpose, Keeping them in stacks of 6-8 is a very good way to store and carry filters.

    Indeed, I do the same. I use a lens cap on one end and a plastic cap from a postage tube on the other - Protects the filters from grubby fingerprints and the threads from damage when rattling around in the bottom of a bag.

    Well, we know that stacking 19 UV filters seriously degrades the image quality..

    I think there is.. These are all 52mm. They have all kinds of filter. I found an IR filter in the stack and later when I was checking out, the salesperson was like damn it why did I put this in here, I could've sold it for 50 bucks. Lol.. Anyway, it's 3 bucks each. If you'd like to buy some, I can get it for you.

    That filter test is pretty cool, I've always wondered about that. Also I think I see your ir filter, 720nm near the bottom of the stack. The top one from Germany might be B+W or heliopan, my favorite filter brands, all their filters are great.
