Great Floydian 2006-12-19 10:56

I am following it with great interest Craig. This one is complete different than your previous one and that is really nice to see how they work in different light conditions and situations. I am only looking to the parts were the filter works, and that sky is really stunning. The rocks in the sea are to dark, but i do not really care for that. The overal composition is stunning with fantastic light in the sky and nice bright parts in the foreground.
I have only those 77m/m L lenses, any idea how they handle the filter system and holder?
Thanks for posting this...i really appreciate that.
Regards, Henk

Default To Floydian: Lee on 77mm

Hi Henk,

If you went with LEE you would need to us the wide angle adaptor for your 17-40L as the 1D is nearer full frame than the 20D/30D etc. The wide angle adaptor ensures that the first filter is as close to the lens as possible by clever positioning of the filter holder behind the lens (simple to understand whenyou see it).

This should minimise vignetting.

And there is no reason why you shouldn't use the wide angle adaptor with your non-wide angle lenses.

LEE is not cheap, but in my opinion is extremely robust, a pleasure to work with in the field and expandable as your needs change (I sound like LEE's marketing department :-))

Cheers
Craig

Hi Craig,

I already thought there must be something extra for using the 16-35m/m.
i am planning only to use it on the 16-35 and the 24-70.
I saw on the Lee website (where you work probably ;-)) that there is a kind of starter set. But maybe the prize is here chaeper at my local dealer...i will check that out.
Thanks for your time and effort to uploading the pictures and your notes...they are a great help.

Kind regards,

Henk
