Olympus 7-14 pro filter dilemma

Can any advise me please. I have checked out several manufacturers of adapters for this lens for filter holder adapters it seems there can be vignetting at the wider end of the lens i.e. 9-7mm. Which begs the question why spend a grand on a lens that cannot be filtered to the max? Has anyone resolved this? When using a polariser + ND grad + big stopper ? Otherwise I might as well keep my sigma 10-20 f3.5 with metabones.
Kind regards Mike

Mike,

I have the Panasonic 7-14 and use a filter holder from Photosphere. It does not vignette at all (with two filters - I suspect it will with three). They have a version for the Olympus 7-14 too. They're based in Singapore and you'll need to order from them there, but they are reputable and I certainly had no problems with my order. It was reasonably fast too.

From their website:

Filter solution consists of

Foam Adapter
Haida 100mm Filter Holder and holder pouch
Lens cap allows the gasket to be mounted and lens and provide some protection while on the move. The foam adapter was designed to fit on Haida 100mm holder

Features:

- No vignette with 2 slots (without rotation, once rotate, vignetting will be induced)

- No light leak (with proper gaskets if purchase our Haida ND filters)

- Strong & secure grip and front loaded from lens for quick mounting

- Light weight (Foam Adapter 30g, Holder 60g)

- 3M adhesive was used for foam & adapter bonding, suited for outdoor weathers (from -54DegC to 82DegC)

It's for square filters only so I guess a CPL won't work. To be honest though, I've never found CPLs to work too well with UWA lenses - the sky darkening is not sufficiently uniform.

I only ever use one filter - a 10-stop ND or an ND grad. Never both together. If I use the 10-stop, I always use Live Time and use a black card jiggled in front of the lens to bring the sky exposure down. It's much more effective than an ND grad since you can get much more correction and also avoid any hard line in the image. You also get to see what the image will look like as you take it. Here's a good example:

That's a great idea!
