What pol filter for Lee filter holder?

Postby michael_g » Sat Jan 11, 2014 1:12 pm


I got a FF body and a 16-35 mm lens, and the lee filter holder, and some filters. I have the wide angle adapter ring for the lens
But I want to get a pol filter and i've read that there are some issues with vignetting.
I've read on different forums and honestly I dont quite find the answers.

So I'd like to use 2 filter slots, for example a ND and a ND grad and then a pol filter. As I use grads the 10x10 pol filter in it self isn't an option, as you can only turn it 90 degrees at a time
As I see it, and please correct me if I'm wrong, there are two versions
- Tandem filter holder with 10x10 filter
- 105 mm circular filter, with a filter holder ring

The tandem version has the advantage that I can use two ND grads at the same time with different angles, I don't know if I will ever need that, but I also imagiene that it will be the one with the largest vignetting issues.
Is any brand of the 105 mm filters less likely to cause vignetting Lee, B+W etc?

Anyone have experiences on vingetting issues on wide angle lenses with the two systems?
