Thread: "Slim" filter

  1. #1

    Default "Slim" filter

    Just read about this 'slim' version polarizing filter, where did they reduce the width?
    do they reduce the outer thread? does that mean we can't have anymore filters infront (e.g. to protect the filter)?

    It's the thickness of the filter that's thinner.

    Yes, normally the slim filters do not have outer screw thread, so u cannot add any more filter in front of the slim filter.
    I have a few B+W slim polarizer filters, I cant even put on the Nikon lens cap in front of the filter, thats how thin they are!

    !!! that means we cant carry the filter attached inside a bag? need to be separated from the lens?!!!!
    is that considered 'bad', from the other point of view?

    If u plan for your shoot well, thats not too bad.

    I've sold a Nikon CIR PL-II 77mm to a Canon user with 17-40L, he's happy

    Personally have used the 77mm filter on AF-S 17-55DX, AF-S 17-35 and AF-S 12-24DX. No problems non-whatsoever.
