Hi,

I'm using Panasonic Lumix LX3, just ordered a 52mm Lens Adapter Tube and a Wide Angle Converter from ebay, awaiting for their arrival.
Now looking for a CPL Filter.

I've seen people (from websites) mount in this sequence:
Camera + Lens Adapter Tube + UV Filter + Wide Angle Converter

But for rotating CPL Filter, may I know if it's possible to mount in the same sequence:
Camera + Lens Adapter Tube + CPL + Wide Angle Converter?

If yes for normal thickness CPL filter frame how about thin CPL filter frame?
Possible?


Thank You.

depends on combination of the widest focal length of the lens (in this case 24mm for LX3), aspect ratio, thread size of the adapter tube, length of the adapter tube, thickness of cpl, thickness of step ring, size of the rear element of the wide-con as well as the conversion factor. optimize all factor may reduce vignetting.

I don't think it's advisable because the outer ring of the polariser have some slack and is weak.

The weight of wide angle lens will probably cause the lens to tilt downwards; you'll probably get distortion.

The outer ring of polariser may even break because of the weight of lens.
