| p.1 #4 · Question: Singh-Ray 77mm filter on 16-35L II |
Thanks guys for your response. That's too bad! Now I begin to hate the 82 mm diameter. 16-35LII is much better than 17-40L in the color rendering and I really didn't want to stack several filters together to produce the effect that a single vari-ND-duo could make.
For those of you use 16-35LII, how could you resolve this problem? Just stack polarizer, GND together? And I found if I stack more than one piece of filter in front of the lens, the color cast would be a problem. Though I might use grey card tricks to deal with it, the color rendering becomes really dull. Any suggestion? Thanks.

Yes, a 77mm filter will vignette on that 82mm lens with the step down ring, particularly the Singh Ray which is really thick. Don't do it.........
this is one of the reasons I hesitated getting the 16-35 II, because of the 82mm lens size. Had to invest in all new filters, but it led me to upgrade my Cokin system to the Lee system for my graduated filters, which has been a big improvement. For my solid filters, I just bit the bullet and bought 82mm ones. Expensive, yes, but the 16-35 is worth it, it's such a great lens!
