Personally, I like the 500 Hz filter in my FT-1000D for running. I 
really don't like keeping one hand on the RIT all the time, and I use 
my brain's DSP to do additional filtering :.)  During ARRL CW, I was at 
a mulitop and used an FT-1000MP with an IRI 500 Hz filter. I thought it 
was too narrow and did have to do a lot of tuning. Plenty of stations 
call off frequency!
