My first outing after I built it I left it in my car. I had to hike to get to a solar eclipse location and carried my stuff in my vest. I thought I had everything, but the adaptor was still in the bag. After the eclipse, I had a great sunset and used the 17, but had to hand hold the ND grad. You get a great reflection of whatever is behind you on the front of the lens that way.
I had considered that I may need the standard filter holder, but I sure do want a shade. I never see those flares until I am home. I mean those sneaky flares that you think are behind your back. The shade also helps some when in a light drizzle like at the coast. No help in rain though.
Its my experience that the 17 TSE lens will flare everytime sun hits the front element. Thus the requirement to shade it with the hand. There is a good reason there is no hood on this lens, the tilt or shift lens movements would require such a wide hood that its effectively no hood at all. Of course in practice we rarely use full tilt with this lens, but its the shift that seems to vignette more easily with Fred's lens cap adapter hood.
The hood worked pretty good on my old rig, other issues of course, but not the hood. That version was closer to the lens. I may need to buy a regular filter holder however, but this one is serviceable to 4mm down. The hood never shows, its the front filter mount that causes vignette. I could remove that and gain a bunch more shift, but then I can't mount my 105mm CPL for my other lenses that use this system.
When I bought the hood, I only had the 24TSE where this system works fine even with a CPL.
