Do all 72mm filters fit all 72mm lenses?

I want to get a B+W 72mm XS-Pro Kaesemann Circular Polarizer with Multi-Resistant Nano Coating and want to verify that it will fit my 45 TS Canon lens, which has no printed filter size on the lens, but I understand through reviews that it takes a 72mm filter. Should this filter work on this lens?

I'm biting on it then. Nothing in the 45mm Canon lens package mentioned anything about filter size. It was just on a review that I got this info. Shame on Canon. Should at least list it on the sheet that came with the lens, especially since it is not imprinted on the lens itself.

Thank You,

Ken

Yes it will use 72mm filters. One thing you can do is on most lens caps will have the size of the lens filter it fits so you can use that.

Hmm... Never seen a marking on the cap - need to look more closely. Thanks for that info.

Look on the inside of the cap, it's subtle but it should be there.

E-72

There it is, bigger than life, right in the center of the inside of the lens cap. I find it more believable if it is, as it most usually is, a part of the inscriptions on the lens itself, but, because this is more of a lens structure that didn't allow for that as easily as most, having it on the inside of the lens cap is fairly trustworthy.

Thank you dear experts!!!

Ken

Lets hope the 'not so cheap' B+W 72mm XS-Pro Kaesemann Circular Polarizer with Multi-Resistant Nano Coating works now that we have a specified size for the lens. Hopefully this lens will take a filter.

You can look on Canon's websites for specifications of just about anything they currently offer or have offered in the past:

Current products: Canon USAexternal link

Past products and all but the most recent new ones: Canon Camera Museumexternal link

Even more info about current lenses is available in Canon "Lens Work - Eyes of EOS" book, which can be downloaded in eleven PDF files from Canon Europeexternal link. Or, if you prefer, try to get a copy of that book. It often shows up for sale here in the POTN Classifieds, on eBay and on Amazon. CPS members are sent a copy each year (and they start to stack up after a few years). New lenses are released all the time by Canon, so the hardbound book may not reflect a really recent release, or a couple year old copy might be missing a few. But you can download the info from the website, print it out and add it to the book if you wish. Not a concern with the TS-E 45mm... it's been around for quite a while now.

Canon also used to have a quick reference chart of lens specifications online separately as a PDF. It's the same as appears in the "Lens Work" book. But, of course, the online copy is kept up to date with any recent lens releases. I looked and couldn't find it... but I bet it's somewhere on Canon's website.

The filter will work fine on that lens. If using it on a crop camera you will have full use of the shifts and tilts of the lens. If using the lens on full frame, movements will probably be slightly limited when the filter is installed. Watch for vignetting in the corners. B+W filters are fairly "slim", but even the slimmest will likely show slightly at the edge with the most extreme shifts or tilt on FF, so there's not much that can be done to prevent this other than back off a little on the movements.

I have the 45mm TS-E. It takes all my 72mm Hoya/B+W/Quantaray filters/step up rings, etc. , interchangeable with the 35L, 50L, 135L all 72mm size.

I'm actually using the 45mm TS-E with a B+W MRC UV Filter + a 72-77mm step up ring + 77mm Lee Wide Angle Adapter + Lee Foundation Kit, with minimal vignetting at full tilt/shift (aside from vignette from the lens itself).

In short, yes that 72mm B+W KSM CPL will fit the 45mm.
