I've been considering getting XS Pro's for all my lenses. Currently they're all exposed. The XS Pro was the only was I was considering for my UWA since the slim is not compatible with normal caps. I might go for a slim CPL, since it will only be on the lens when in use. Unfortunely, a good 77mm filter (UV or CPL) will be considerably more expensive than what I paid for my 19-35mm.I buy online and order what I planned to order when the price is right.
I usually buy in the shop my lenses. But, I got a good deal online, so first time order online. A bit of a gamble not being able to check the lens as you can do that when buying in the shop.
So today my 16-35 f/2.8 MK II arrived
I also got a B+W slim filter for it. Weird experience with this slim filter (is a first too) The lenscap cannot be attached to protect the filter
That's a first too. With my other regular B+W UV filters on other lenses this is not a problem.
Is this something common with slim filters?
The B+W XS Pro series are slim, plus it supports the lens cap. All my filters are XS Pro and the caps fit quite well for a ultra slim profile, never had any problems with it. You may want to get them for your UWA lens
I haven't really gotten in trouble with my wife for buying camera stuff. I hunt daily for really good deals and broken equipment to fix (I've fixed dozens of cameras and a bunch of lenses). My photography hobby pays for itself.
