Nikon 14-24 w/Cokin X-pro filter

Cokin X-Pro filter holder

Cokin X-Pro universal adapter

On a DX format, no vignetting at all. Able to use 2 filters or polarizer w/ 1 filter. The homemade slip-on adapter is made from 4" schedule 40 pvc plumbing pipe.

    Thinlie -- If the diameter of the 14-24 is 98mm, the inner diameter of the lens hood and max outer diameter of the actual lens might be about 96mm.

    Moreover, the linked article seems to suggest that for a DX camera with the 14-24, this size would not cause vignetting. And I am planning on using it with a D300. Quoting the article "With DX format no vignetting at all."

    Since the article was based on using the Lee push on holder, using a 96mm adapter ring centered precisely over the lens would seem to provide the same opening. Then the use of 100mm filters would seem doable.

    awesome setup! have you tested it on FX yet?
  • thinlie 7y

    Dan G - I have looked through my Nikon FE 35mm format and with my pvc flush to the tip of the hood it vignettes up to 20mm with it able to use the full capabilities of the holder. Now with the front of the pvc pushed in so its flush with the side petals of the hood, with use of only 1 filter, I see no vignetting at 14mm. I would really like to try this out on a D3 and take a few clicks to see if there really is no vignetting at 14mm.

    THANK YOU THINLIE ! This is awesome ! I was desperately looking for a solution for this damn filter problem on this particular lens ! Let's order ! ;-)

    Thank you for a light at the end of the tunnel. I've been sitting on the fence over purchasing the 14-24 or the Tokina 11-15. Both are outrageous. I rented the 14-24 for 3 weeks and borrowed the Tokina. I just ordered the Nikon after I read your post. Please consider fabricating the filter modification for sale. I'm not too swift in this department. if you'd consider making this for me.
    Also, a big thank you for the Bay Area photos. Born and raised in SF and Marin but now living in NJ. I can drool and get homesick anytime I want now!
    In fact I was just "home" last month but had my Nikon 17-35 and the 105 stolen from my bags. So I wasn't able to shoot many landscapes. I still have my 70-200 though. I'm looking forward to getting back in the game with the new 14-24...fall's coming to the East.

    你好,我是 Camera GROUP 群組的管理員,我們希望將其新增至該群組!

    Amazing lens, I'm planing to buy it soon but the fact it can't accept filters is just killing me! I shoot landscapes allot and not being able to use a polarizer is just unthinkable to me. At moments I was even thinking about giving up on this amazing lens. Your solution gives me hope again. Cokin X series polarizer is quite an additional investment but this lens is so good it justifies it. Are you satisfied with X series glass? Do you notice any deterioration in sharpness or quality overall? Thanks! Cheers!

    good idea! I am waiting for my D700 and the 14-24 now, i was a bit worried about the filter bit, but not anymore :)
  • tan lih huei 5y

    the filter can cover whole part or the lens? on 14mm
  • Reed Ingram Weir 5y

    Cheers for this I have now made a similar version that work with no vignetting at 16mm on FX format I even managed to get some Lee 130/170mm Filters :)

    great job

    Wow! Almost 36,000 views. You really have shown a lot of 14-24 owners that putting on a filter is possible and simple.

    Quick question - if you mount the adapter ring on a lens directly, is there going to be damage because of the screws to the lens frame? Thanks.

    Hi: I am intrigued by the slip cover set up you made for the Filter holder on a Nikon 14-24 f/2.8 lens. Did any stray light bleed in from the slip on PVC ring or was the seal on the hood close enough? I am wondering about the Lens Hood and its butterfly shape being a problem before I go ahead and try this with a very expensive lens

    I just made a cool holder for my 14-24 without buying an adapter ring. Another $6 part at home depot and it snaps right on to the filter holder that I bought for $27. Now I just need a good deal on X-Pro filters.

    A great lens and set up!
