I will be photographing a friends wedding in early Oct. I would like to get a soft focus filter for some "romantic" shots but I know almost nothing about them. I have a Canon 40D 17x85 IS.
What would you recommend and why? Also any hints on using it would be appreciated. :?:

Thanks Jim

Better to do this later in Photoshop.

+1 on doing it later in post processing. This way you will have the original sharp (hopefully :-)) image and can add various soft focus/fog/diffusion effects with or without vignettes and still have the unaltered original. When you use filter there is no going back to the sharp image, unless you are quick enough to shoot the same scene both with and without filter.
