Get those ultra-slim ones; I'm using one for mine but they don't come cheap if you're getting the good ones like B+W...

To advoid vignetting for wide angle lens, u have to use Slim-Line Filters and Polarizers, example: B+W Slim-Line Filters and Polarizers

I use the Hoya Super HMC Pro1 Filter on my 17-35mm AFS. These are really slim but they have only three types avalialbe... the SkyLight 1B, UV(0) and the Circular Polariser.

Opps should have stated properly. The sigma 17-35mm one. The one with a HUGE 82mm thread.
I have that one. Doing some lens test soon.

Been raining a lot so darn difficult to get good shots.

But my shots so far indicate little or no difference from my 28-105 on the wide end. Standard amount of USM required in PS.

Some one lend me a 17-35L for a comparison can? :devil:

Hi Hackie,
I just got it on Saturday, have not taken any shots yet. I'm a lazy photographer only take photos on sunny days :D . I'm also waiting for some prints I took to 'study' my mistakes on my other lens.

I'm looking for filters, probably the cokin ones so I can reuse on my lenses.

What sort of lenses u have? Any primes for wide angled? Then we can do a decent comparison.

I was going to compare my 28-105 to the 17-35 on the wide end.

I have a 28-80, and a 70-300. 4got to mention I shoot on film, so does that mean on my 17-35 w/ a UV guard or watever, vignetting is more likely to occur?

Hmm your UV filter might have a problem with vignetting and sharpness. I use a D60.

But I have the std Hoya 82 mm on mine so u can test it out if u want. I'm thinking of upgrading this UV filter so I can sell to u too.
