Optics Theory - This forum is aimed towards the TECHNICAL side of photographic OPTICS THEORY. There will be some overlap by camera/manufacturer, but this forum is for the heavy duty tech discussions. This is NOT the place to discuss a specific lens or lens line, do that in the appropriate forum. This is the forum to discuss optics or lenses in general, to learn about the tech behind the lenses and images. IF you have a question about a specific lens, post it in the forum about that type of camera, NOT HERE.

1.4/35 Summilux Filter Stacking

Hello all.

I often use a dark red filter, a yellow, or an nd filter on my lenses for b&w work. always one at a time. can i successfully stack some b+w stander filters on my Summilux 35mm without vignetting? I am only wanting to use two at a time - a 103 nd filter and a dark red filter, or a variation of this.

35mm means a fairly wide field of view, into which stacked filters may intrude. It would be best to take two trial shots, one at f/1.4 and the other at f/8 or smaller.

Thanks Makul. I will surely try this, just hoping that someone had some experience with this.
