B+W UV filter XS Pro broken by Canon 17-40L lens cap
« on: January 06, 2013, 11:23:51 AM »
Hello,

I read some discussions about UV / clear filters for the 17-40L and wanted to share my experience.

I recently purchased 5DIII + 17-40L + B+W Filter UV (010) XS Pro Digital MRC Nano D77mm.

Yes, though it's a slim filter you CAN still attach the original Canon lens cap provided with the 17-40L. But the lens cap does NOT fit completely. The front thread is not deep enough.

So there was a problem : the DSLR is stocked all day in a top loader bag, pointing down. And there was a pressure on the lens cap due to body + lens weight. 3 days ago, I found the filter completely broken. And I could CLEARLY see that the starting point of the broken zone is on the border where the lens cap pushed...

Now, I'll buy a F-Pro mount...

Just to share my experience...

Cheers,
