you have the adapter, you have a camera, you have a 24-70 and you're asking us if it'll vignette at 24mm? same with a wide 82 and a 16-35II. :confused:

From their site though, it's either 20 or 24 IIRC... So your 16-35 needs the UWA you have but you have it and are set.

Do you have the holder yet? You shouldn't need a filter mounted to see at what point it'll vignette. You can remove the front slot(s) if needed to reduce the holder's profile.

Vignetting is caused by the holder, not the filter. Simply mount the holder to the lens (with all three slots in place) and shoot some frames at various apertures and various focal lengths. If you see vignetting, then simply remove a slot or two as suggested to reduce/eliminate the vignetting.

If you can't find a Lee 77 WA ring, here's a link to one that'll work (its made by Lee and marketed by Century Optics). Can't say for sure if its in stock...you'll need to check that on your own::

And, how did it turn out?
Is there any vignetting, if yes, at what focal lengths etc?
