Seems the hood chopping is ever more important if we don't get the smooth reflection app back in the a7r3. I may contact SK Grimes myself.

Just curious, why can't you use a screw in ND filter? I use a screw in CPL when conditions are right.

It's not that you can't, it's just a bit more of a pain with the hood petals. However, I also have large square filters that fit all my lenses from the loxia 21 and the 24-70GM. It's nice to be able to use one set of filters for all lenses. I use Lee-type filter holders.

Plus if you cut the hood you have access to put a step up ring to go bigger filters which you could also stack two filters without vignetting.


I did this myself hence the word Choppy that is tagged to this lens via our members here. I also happened to have a perfect copy. So you may hear that reference too when talking about the IQ. You may hear I got a copy as good as Choppy. There is a Choppy 1 in M mount and a Choppy 2 in E mount floating around here between members. I cut both there hoods off with a Dremel.

Today I have the Laowa 15 F2 which I really like.

Guy, will you let us know how you cut the petals?

I had the Choppy II and regret I sold it when all the hoopla of the Sony 12-24 came out. I bought another one back and it seems to have good corners too. Let me know if you sell your Laowa.

Quick cutting thought . I used gaffers tape to protect the lens side than put a hose clamp on to follow that line and cut. I think itís in this thread. Also I put two filters rings on to protect from slipping into the lens. That one is a biggy

For me it gives the ability to use the Lee Seven5 filter holder with all my lenses.

Are there any downsides of using 58mm screw on filters on this lens? Filter stack? The soecs say that it does take them.

They have to be very slim to avoid vignetting.

I just sent mine to S.K. Grimes for hood removal. I wanted to use it with the Lee Seven5 filter system (which I use with most of my lenses)
