    Default Any use for cracked UV filter?

    i have a cracked 77mm B+W UV filter. Wondering if anyone can think of any creative use for it, like some method of using it as a soft-focus or something else. Don't really want to throw it away bcoz the quality of the brass ring is really good.

    BTW, the filter shows flare easily even in mild indoor lighting.

    I knocked out the glass. Placed the filter ring on the 17-35L.

    I did this because when the hood is on the 17-35L, the original cap (with the side clips) is extremely difficult to remove. With this extension, it works beautifully.

    Recently I bought a Tamron cap (with the centre grips) only makes it even easier to remove.
