EF 14-24mm and Filters
« on: May 13, 2013, 06:33:54 AM »
how likely is it that a EF 14-24mm can be used with screw on filters?

will it have a bulged frontelement that prevents the use of filters?

Looking at the patent, probably no front filters.

Lee makes the SW-150 Filter Holder for the Nikon. They would likely adapt it to fit the Canon, if it should actually ever appear. I have the Tokina AT-X 16-28 f/2.8 Pro FX, but so far it remains naked.

as neuro wrote, the patent illustration makes it look unlikely.

The best way to handle filters for lenses such as this is to do what they do with the big telephoto lenses and put the filter at the rear of the lens.

Do you think Canon will (if it's even possible) design such a lens to take a drop-in holder like the supertele lenses?  A slot for gels doesn't work for a CPL, for example, and even on UWA lenses they are useful for reflections and increasing saturation, e.g. foliage shots.

You did not say how likely it is to be an EF14-24 you said

"how likely is it that a EF 14-24mm can be used with screw on filters"

There is a slight (er big I mean) difference...

Non-existent lens, so filter question is superfluous.

I've managed to use filters on my old Sigma 12-24mm and TS-e 17mm full frame lenses. I currently use the PhotoDiox Wonderpaner system. Yes it works, not it's not easy or nice to use 145mm circular filters. But it's great to have a Polariser option which can ben used fill tilt or shift. But, working with such large filters is a serious PITA out in the field. I also have a 3 stop and 5 stop ND (not grads) which are ok, but have a really odd colour cast to them. Functionally they work well, but stacked (ND and polariser) and the lens can't be used with it's fullest range of shift...but it's certainly enough for most situations. Pointing this lens directly into the sun unfortunatly yeilds an increase in internal reflections and flare...which isn't there with the native lens.

I have high hopes for the new ef 14-24mm f2.8 L, I'm sure it'll be stellar. Hey, we all KNOW it's coming at some point....it's just when. Canon are doing some proper developement these days and pro gear is taking a while to hit the shelves...but when it does...it's top gear.

if it is not a screw filter, there will be a work-a-round.

A retro fit of the a Nikons 14-24 Ultra-wide Square style filter adpater. Really expensive.

That defeats the main purpose for which most people use filters, which is to be a disposable piece of outer glass that protects the lens from random dust and scratches.  The rear of the lens isn't exposed to the elements....

Not really....the CPL is a tricky thing to turn on those big lenses and the rear gel filter holders on ultra wides (8-15L and 14L) aren't appropriate for CPL's or ND grads.
