Hi folks,

I am selling my new 17-40mm f/4 and buying a 16-35mm f/2.8 II. I am thinking of getting a HOYA 82mm HD Circular Polarizing Digital Filter for it. The filter frame is 5mm thick and the glass is 2mm thick.

Will it cause vignetting? Has anyone here used it on the 16-35mm f/2.8 II?

I looked at the B+W slim CP filters. They are expensive and don't accept lens cap ( I know they provide their own cap).

Thank you in advance for all the advices and replies.

Take a look at Heliopan. I understand their slim filters are threaded. Had I known that I'd have purchased it instead of B+W. I wouldn't buy any filters other than B+W or Heliopan.

Hi, I have the 16-35II and the B+W slim filter, I searched all over the place for advice on what you're asking for now and I ended up getting the B+W, the filter is great and there is no vignetting. As you noted the only problem with it is it's cap, it is not held on the filter with anything but a tight fit on the outside and it tends to slip-off... I think they did not have another opt. other than threading it from the outside, if they added the thread as on other filters it would vignette for sure. I think the best way to go is in fact this B+W filter.


I am not young enough to know everything. O.W.
