Has anyone tried to use a lens mount UV filter in addition to a Lee or Cokin filter system?
Wanting to cut down some of the UV without sacrificing the LEE filter.
I assume you are referring to a screw-on UV filter?
IMO UV filter serves no purpose other than possibly to "protect" the front element of the lens. All you are doing is sticking another layer of glass there which can degrade image quality.
I honestly do not know anyone who uses one anymore unless they are going out where there is a 100% chance of debris hitting the front of the lens (mud, sand, saltwater spray, etc).
What exactly do you think "UV" is doing to your images? I have honestly never seen anyone explain why they need one other than to "cut down UV". That is not being sarcastic either, I am seriously asking haha.
If you really wanted one, as long as the UV filter had the same threads as the lens, I dont see why you wouldnt be able to use one. A slim filter would most likely not work though.
