    Re: Which diameter filter

    As an aside, I've used my 72mm XL (95mm filters) and center filter (112mm filter) with 100mm rectangular GND filters rubber-banded to the front. That cut off about 6mm of the front of the lens on each side, but the IC for that is massive and not a problem for 4x5. Of course this would depend on movements and format, but generally you can get away with a lot more when using 4x5 lenses with usually larger ICs than on digital cameras with wide angle lenses usually almost no room for filter cut-off. As an example, I have a filter holder for my Nikon 14-24mm lens that is massive and requires 150mm-wide filters to get out of the way of the bulbous front element.

    As I understand it, Nikon's Z 14-24mm f/2.8S is the very reason that a small number of manufacturers are currently making 112mm filters, although the lines are limited to ultraviolet, polariser and neutral density filters. Those 112mm filter lines are marketed specifically for that lens.

    I didn't know that. To clarify, I was talking about the older AF-S lens. I don't shoot mirrorless...well except for my rangefinders and LF cameras of course!

    Example... There's nothing about this polariser that's unique to Nikon's Z 14-24mm f/2.8S lens, it's just that that lens is the market for it:

    The older 14-24mm doesn't have the ability to take screw filters.

    Luckily, when I was deciding to purchase the Schneider Kreuznach lens and centre filter that I mentioned in post #60, NiSi/B&H decided to sell that 112mm polariser for half price for 24 hours.

    I've also had good luck buying 112mm filters second-hand. Tokina Cinema makes a series of well-regarded IRND (infrared neutral density) filters for ciné lenses, including 112mm, and I've been able to acquire the strengths that I wanted at reasonable prices.

    Thanks everyone for your input. I have to think about the options now.
