It's a hot weekend! Hot and sunny with drifting cloud. Decided to take a bluesky shot with FZ20 + UV and CP filters. To avoid vignetting, I zoom-in to fl:14.70mm.

And if you can spot it, there's a fairy riding a dragon!!! :bigeyes:
Pic with exif data intact and no post processing, no cropping. Just resized.

Ya... very hot... went out to take some shots at about 5 something to 6 plus, still felt the heat... OT: Just wonder can we use the UV and CP together? I notice my UV filter like can fit another filter onto it.

Cheers

Yup..no problem..you can do filter stacking at any sequence but beware of vignetting

Ok. Will try that the next round. To think that I still took out the UV and put the CP :bsmilie:

Better not to remove the UV lens as to protect the Leica lens from dust.

The UV filter is permanently fit to adapter. Never remove it for fear of dust!!!
Just add the close-up lens or CP filter as and when required....

Hmmm... You might be interested to know that there's a school of thought saying that we shouldn't permanently attach the UV lens. Doing that is suppose to affect picture quality.

So they suggest the ND filter for protection. Refer to page 102 of your manual.

ps. I personally keep the UV filter on, just thought you might want to know the above info. :blah:

Depending on the thread size, the brand and type of UV filter you want, they can range from $8 to $120.

If you folks are afraid of vignetting, you can get slim CPs, it should not vignette on top of a UV.

Alamak! I should have consulted espn first. Mine got vignetting at wide. Must be thicker lens one....

Is the thin lens one expensive?
