| p.1 #9 · Lee ND graduated filters with Nikon 16-35 f4? |
Wow! You got quite a response. I have the same setup, the 16-35mm with the Lee adapter. i bought the WA adapter as was recommended by EVERYONE at the time. I don't regret it because I can still use other lenses with the WA adapter, whereas it doesn't quite work the other way around. Another cool thing is that you can use smaller diameter lenses...say, for example, a 67mm by using a step up filter b/n the front of the lens and the Lee WA adapter -- WITHOUT vignetting. Best of both worlds. I would expect a little vignetting at 16mm with any adapter, period. Also, IMHO that lens is at its weakest and worst at 16mm with ALL of the distortion. I consider it a 17mm at best, and 18mm ideally, lens. 18mm is more than wide enough for me and with distortion largely eliminated from the widest setting it's a gem. Lastly, I know people use HDR to compensate for overexposing but even though Nikon DSLRs have arguably the best DR of any camera manufacturer -- there simply is no substitute for correct exposure. I took a lot of shots in the desert before I had the Lee filter system and no amount of HDR or photoshop could correct for overexposure I suffered (and not to mention the overexposure was grossly varied across the composition. Get the Lee Filter system and be done with it.
P.S. I know a fella on Fleabay that sells Lee filter components much cheaper than any other person out there. PM me if interested
