What filters are you guys using on this lense for everyday use if any at all? Haze, polarizer? New user but long time canon owner. Unfortunately I have neglected to use my camera for quite some time and have fallen behind on the digital side of things. so please excuse the noob post but want to order this lens with filters at the same time.

I have full set of filters for my film lenses but I know from research that the digital side was different when it comes to the haze and uv filters.

The only filter that I use with this lens is a CPL filter.

Oh, and welcome to POTN! :cool:

It's definitely an ENTIRE scene grabber isn't it.

Cool. Former film shooter here so I'll fill you in on the news. Digital sensors are not prone to the same UV issues that film was. No UV or haze filter is needed. It will only add an extra piece of glass between the sensor and the subject increasing the chances of lens flare. I used to pack a UV on all my lenses but I made that switch about 3 months into digital. For "protection" I just always shoot with a lens hood which makes it much more difficult for something to hit the front element, eliminates the possibility of the lens being scratched with a broken filter if something were to hit the lens, and lets me take full advantage of the advanced optics and coatings to maximize sharpness without having to worry as much about flare.

I do pack a couple ND filters for flash in full sun with wide apertures and for slowing shutter speeds down if I want blur without having to go to the small apertures. I also pack a CPL which does cause some problems occasionally on a lens like this because of the wide field of view but otherwise, any other filter can be applied in post which for me is much better because you can change the density, graduate where you want, and all that without worrying about flare. :-)

At least that's my take on it after making the leap about 2 years ago.

I just ordered the Marumi DHG Super Circular Polarizer from Amazon; hopefully it will deliver good results. Reviews give it outstanding marks although costing half of what a B+W runs. Will run it through the paces this weeken on my 77mm lenses.

Everyone in this thread seems to be pretty receptive to answering questions, I've got a few that hopefully someone can help me out with.

1. A few reviews said there's some funky distortion with this, but I'm not seeing it in the examples in this thread. I assume its easy to correct?

2. Anyone know how wide I can go with this lens before my cokin P-sized filters will start vignetting?

3. Used or new? There's some great prices in the used forum, but I"m not sure if it would be worth the new price to have the warranty.

Thanks!

I've had no funky distortion problems. Straight from the camera I haven't noticed anything to cause a ruckus over. Even after purchasing this lens and renting a Canon 10-22, I am still pleased that I went with this lens. I bought mine used here on the forum, that was a great alternative to buying new for me.
