    If I use filters, quite often.

    I have not tried those 2 lenses before. But I am quite sure you need to get the single slot wide angle filter holder and not the standard 3 slot holder.

    Thanks for the reply, doesn't that means one would need to spend more on filters because it can't stack?

    Errr... no. You use less filters (1 at a time). Meaning if you want to achieve certain things, you have to find workarounds.

    What I meant is, if u need a 4 stop GND, you would need to acquire an additional single piece 4 stops GND filter instead of being able to stack ur existing 3 & 1 stop GND right?

    That depends how much is the ambient present at the scene, how choppy is the water. Average 30 seconds long exposure is needed.

    B+W nd110 or the Lee Big Stopper both are 10 stops. I believe Lee Big Stopper cannot fit into P holder. ND110 is a screwed on filter.

    Check with TK Foto. Ask them if the 4 stop or 10 stop Hitech filters come in 85mm size.

    I bought myself a starter filter kit to play around (e.g. Cokin P holder, Tianya 85mm ND & GND filters)
    Basically I stacked the ND & GND onto a 18-200mm lens.
    After a few sunset shots, I noticed that there's quite bad vignetting and flares on my photos.
    Removing the UV filter/circular polarizer helped (to reduce the distance from filters to lens), but vignetting & flares still occur.

    What can I do to prevent such vignetting & flares from occurring? (e.g. do not stack filters? Filter issue? wrong slot-in positioning etc?)
    I would post a photo here to explain what I mean, but I'm not sure if this is the right thread to put it...
    Thanks for your help.

    I was just wondering something but I'm not sure whether is this the correct place to post..

    Since those low-end "cheapo" MUV filters are no match with those like B+W or Hoya mid to high-end series (in terms of quality)..
    Did it make any diff between those Multi-coated UV (like Green L or those for a few $$ on ebay) vs "cheap branded" Multi-coated UV (like Steinseizer)?

    I have been using either Kenko or Steinseizer for my filters.

    People often make comparison between Kenko/Steinseizer vs Hoya/B+W..
    Anyone have experience between "cheapo" filters?


    Sorry, but just curious..

    Are you using a step-down filter? I doubt it is the stacking as, you said you see vignetting (black corners I supposed).
    I think that you try to use one only and see how it goes.

    Oh, are you using a APS-C body of a FF body?
    This also may be a factor, due to focal length issues.

    I actually had a Steinseizer at one point. It seems to be coated lightly. At least one layer. Whether or not it is multicoated I don't know. But when mounted the Steizeizer seems to flare a lot easier than the most basic Hoya standard "both sides coated" filter.

    I really recommend the Hoya HMC, it is cheap and good. A 77mm Hoya HMC UV will only cost you around $35-40.

    Thanks Shaoken, but I doubt the step-down is a issue.
    For the shots, a Tamron 18-200mm Aspherical LD XR DiII 3.5-6.3 (62mm) on a Nikon D40x was used.
    It was taken at 18mm, and even with a 1.5x crop factor, why do vignetting still occur?
    Does anyone else have any advice? Thanks.
