EF 14mm f/2.8 L II & Cokin X-Pro filter holder
« on: March 22, 2012, 01:57:00 PM »
Has anyone used this combination of filter holder & lens together on a FF body? I would LOVE to hear any input. Mainly, I am wondering if it will vignette with 2 filters in the holder. I plan on using the universal ring adapter & have heard that it DOESN'T vignette with one filter in the holder. Is that true? Will it vignette with 2 filters?

Also, I know that there is issues stacking Cokin filters. I'm not planning using Cokin filters but buying Singh-Ray GND filters instead.

Thanks in advance!! :)

Have you thought of a Lee holder?
I use a lee with a wide angle adapter on a 5d with the 16-35mm I and 2 ND filters and get zero vignetting.  I understand it's not a 14mm.  But I did a lot of research before I bought the Lee system and if you're using X-Pro without modifying it, you get vignetting on 16-35, so I'm sure you'd get it on 14mm.

Otter,

What do you think of the Lee system? I've been looking at it with great interest.

Otter,

I really like it.  As I said, I'm using a 16-35mm I on a 5d MKIII and I'm not getting any vignetting.  Similar to all the forum posts and reviews I read, hold true.  I am using the 77mm wide angle adapter which is part of the reason.  I have only gone 2 ND grads long from the lens.  I haven't needed to put on a 3rd.  I do plan to save up for the 105mm polariser. that I will mount on the end.  I've heard it's big enough not to cause an issue either.
I am using Lee resin filters with it.  The build quality of the holder itself is quite nice.  Slides around your lens nice and smoothly and holds the filters snug.
So that's a long, I definitely recommend it.  I think you will be happy with it.  If you do get it, I recommend picking up the lens cap for it.  They're $5 or so.  It's just a plastic cap that you put over the adapter, so when you're say walking around a lake shooting from different locations, you don't have to keep unscrewing the adapter, you only have to quickly pop off the holder and put the cap on.

Just found this which has a special adaptor ring for the 14mm L II.  It takes huge 165mm filters and can hold 2 at a time.  The 165mm filters hitech makes are pretty reasonable in price and I think lee might make some too.  I'm sure it wouldn't vignette.  I might order one soon (if you look at the version with the adaptor ring for the nikon 14-24 you can see a picture of it). Thoughts?
