Just got my 14-24mm! Retiring my Nikon 12-24mm f/4
Jun 3, 2010

Well, I like to think of my time with my 12-24mm DX on an FX body (D700) as my "soft corner" period. But it did work out to 18mm nevertheless without vignetting (the same FOV as on a DX body, so I only lost out on telephoto end when I switched to FX).

And here it is on my now retired D100:

But I just spent some hard earned cash on a new 14-24mm and it just came in the mail less than an hour ago. I also bought a Cokin X-Pro and 105mm adapter ring that I'm going to rig a slip on clamp over since Lee Filters is taking entirely too long to make their adapter and 150mm filter holder (it would probably be too expensive anyways--which is anything over $250 for me).

Since we're on filters, anyone know of any X-Pro sized (I think it's 130mm) 10 stop ND filter? The only Cokins I can find are 2 stops at most. That's not enough for my intended work. I just purchased an IR filter instead in the meantime for some IR landscapes--but unfortunately, it's backordered at Adorama. Lee makes a 10 stop ND, but again, they're taking too long to make an adapter and I want to take some photos this weekend with my new friend.

Does Schneider make any 130mm filters I wouldn't have to cut down myself?
