| p.3 #10 · Fotodiox introduces two WonderPana Filter Systems |
Fred / Drew
I just got my WonderPana 145 /66 for the Canon TS-E 17. I am currently on my second copy of the 145 adaptor for the TS-E 17mm and with both copies I have received from Fotodiox, I can not mount them on to the lens. The bayonet style mount seems to be too tight on the bayonet tracks of the lens. I can only get it to turn about 1/2 a centimeter before it gets stuck. By stuck I mean it takes two hands to take it off the lens! I don't want to force it as I can already see some of the black finish coming off the lens. When I try mounting it, the adaptor seems to sit nice and flush on the lens, but it just won't turn.
I have been working with Jeff at FotoDiox (great customer service btw!!) who quickly sent me the second copy overnight when I discovered the issue with the 1st copy, but having the same problem with a second copy, I am starting to get concerned it may be a design issue. My copy of the 17 TS-E is brand new, so I doubt it is the issue. The lens cap has no issue screwing on.
Fred, Have you had any issues with the copy they sent you for your review?

In my opinion, if you make these step-up rings available, the WonderPana system would be even more desirable and you may sell even more filters.
All the best,
