i cant seem to find this info anywhere... i am looking at a hoya or a B+W uv protection filter.... coincidentally, i see a number of them for sale on here, but all seem to be of the slim variety, and i cant figure out if a standard lens cap will fit, or if i need one of those slip-on caps. all of the ones in the FS section are listed as BNIB, so i cant ask the seller to open the package and test.

for example:

My B+W slim polarizer, came with its own slip-over protective cap. I don't know about Hoya, I don't own any slim Hoyas. But you do know! all slim design filters do not have front threads on them, if that makes any matter to you. But that does mean there is no place for a clip on lens-cap, to get a grip on.

I have a slim protection filter on my 70-200, was there when I bought the lens. I can still use the canon lens cap. There's still a couple of threads on the filter to hold the cap, just not as much as a regular filter.

Check out B+W XS-PRO. They are slim, and you can use standard lens cap on them.

I have them on EF 16-35mm f2.8, EF 85mm f1.2 and EF 135mm f2.0. Slightly less vignetting then with B+W F-PRO, some flare if you shoot at the point light sources, but other than that no impact on the image quality.

As GLeBLanc stated, some "slim" designs have front threads, just fewer of them.... other designs have no front threads at all. You can check the manufacturer's website to determine which is which. That way, you can buy based on product ID or model number, etc. and you won't be surprised.

And as Steve mentioned, some of the slim designs with no threads come with a slip on cover since a traditional lens cap won't work.

If you are buying from B&H, give them a call or do a live online chat with one of their sales people. Better hurry... they close for their holidays in 38 minutes.

ah, missed the live chat with BH (went to the site at precisely 1:01pm)

ive looked on the Hoya website, but it doesnt have any info regarding lens caps and slim filters. i guess ill have to trudge on over to BH or Adorama and ask in person.

Be thankful you can even do that! Many of us buy everything without seeing it first!
