Does it vignette?

Also, I'm having a devil of a time getting the mini-hood off the lens, even using Tom A's palm of the hand "trick".

Hi,

I haven't noticed any vignetting. I used a uv filter (with the hood on) since the very first day I bought the lens.

Nope. I've never taken off the mini hood either. It didn't seem to want to come off on mine either, until one day I was casually handling it and it just started to unscrew. I snugged it up again...

amended: I have used an orange or green filter on my 21mm. No problems.

I often use a Leica 39mm yellow filter with no vignetting. As for removing the hood, try pressing it down hard on the sole of a sneaker and then twisting; or pinching opposite edges of the hood and pulling round.

I use a UV without problems.
Could you somehow screw in the filter without removing the hood? They dont use the same thread if I remember correctly - dont have the lens with me to check.

I use a UV filter without any issues. The round hood goes on threads on the outside of the lens, but there is so little clearance that you have no way to tighten up your filter without removing the hood first. I don't use the round hood. I have the rectangular hood instead, and I use an Op Tech Hood Hat on it.

Another vote for 'no problems' (B+W filters).

Cheers,

R.

Never used a filter on mine. But then I am not a filter person.

I change filters on mine quite frequently. No vignetting. I find the easiest way to get the hood off is by twisting with the cap on. The felt liner inside the cap gives it a little friction. Give it a shot.

Another happy filter user. I once got what looked like vignetting while shooting on a bright day on the coast. Hasn't shown up any other time, filter or no filter. I now just keep a UV on my 21 all the time.

Just tried to screw the hood off by hand, couldn't move it for love or money. But put the CV lenscap on and it unscrewed with no pressure at all. Be aware this lens flares very easily. No vignetting with a filter on.

Thanks for the help!

As mentioned earlier, the lens does flare if shooting into the sun, but that in part is because it's 21mm and therefore you have a good chance of the sun being somewhere in the frame. But I have managed to tame the flare by using a multicoated filter. The first filter I got for it was uncoated (or single-coated), and when I later got a multicoated one I could see a big improvement. For what it's worth, I am referring to B+W filters, which I love and use pretty much exclusively these days when at all possible.

Enjoy!

B+W yellow filter, no issues.

The lens vignettes on its own without a filter.

you should know... it's your lens! Took the first roll to the lab and will pick it up a lunch. Looking forward to the results (to be posted on a separate thread).
