    Same here, just bought a 37mm cokin polariser too and it gives vignetting while at the widest angle

    Like what Jango has say, I think it's due to the double ring.....

    Hee but at least you can still use ur flash

    My lens adaptor is now on my cam for 24/7 without the need to remove it.

    For star filter, you can try asking John 3:16?

    Vignetting is the block of part of the lens by the lens barrel, filters etc. causing the darkening of the corners of the pix.

    In ultra-severe cases only a round patch in the centre of the pix is visible while the rest of the pix is black.

    Would not the 43 to 37mm cause vignetting?? It is quite hard to believe because the 37mm is smaller than the olympus actual lens. Whenever, you have such situation, theoretically it should have vignetting..? Did you check properly?

    Since you are stepping up to 55mm, you will not get vignetting. But for those who step down, its almost certaing vignetting will be present especially with polarizer filters.

    Erm.. if the 37mm is smaller than the lens, then the lens will definately crash into the adaptor wat

    The default thread size for the C2040Z is yes 43mm but the lens isn't.

    you have the 43 to 37mm tube?? The lens is bigger than 37mm but smaller than 43mm. You can still fix in an end =37mm tube because it is initally 43mm. The slant into 37mm would allow thanand that is why i say vignetting is definate. I was surprise to hear someone saying no vignetting when using 37mm end tube.

    The adapter i haf is stated as 41-37mm. To see some of the shots i haf taken with the skylight filter (37mm), go to this thread:

    http://forums.clubsnap.org/showthrea...&threadid=6428

    The first as well as the last shots were shot at full wide-angle with the filter on.

    Erm...can assure you that with the 43mm-37mm adaptor + my UV filter, there was no vignetting seen. You can check out my gallery under the Street Shots and some of the night shot sections. Those are taken after I've gotten the adaptor.

    Problem is only with the Polariser which I just bought and cos it's double the thickness of my UV filter (2 rings) thus got the vignetting problem.

    Blitz, did you remove your filter first before attching your PL filter (2 rings?).
