Haze/UV filter for Canon 10-22mm UWA: beware
Jun 13, 2008

As others have pointed out on this forum, some haze/UV filters don't work on the Canon 10-22 because at 10mm, the lens touches the filter. I just bought the Canon 77mm haze filter and indeed the lens does touch it at 10mm. I was going to return the filter, then I remembered I have 77mm haze filters on a couple other Canon lenses, so I tried one of the older ones (B+W, made in Germany) and bingo, it works just fine (and the new Canon filter works fine on the older lens).

So make sure you try the filter on the lens before you buy.

That seems a bit odd. How does that Canon 77mm filter look? It must sit
rather deep in the thread, or even extend to the back?

I have a Hoya digital Pro1 UV on the 10-22 and seem to have space in between.
(I will try to figure out the distance, if possible).

It seems as if the glass in the Canon filter is closer to the back of the rim--am I being clear?--than the older filter's glass is. So the older filter provides a bit more space. It's not something you'd notice unless you were worried about 0.5 mm, as I was with the 10-22mm lens.

Funny that Canon would make filters that don't fit on their own lenses....

Same for the Tokina UWAs..

like their 12-24 and new 11-16. The Hoya SHMC (or any standard size filter) "bumps" the front element when at their widest focal length. I use slim MC's on the 11-16 and it's fine now.

Mine doesn't..

I have a regular Hoya UV on mine and it doesn't hit?? I placed a small piece of newsprint onto of the lens glass and moved it to 10mm and it is not touching, paper did not crush into the filter. It's close but doesn't touch...

I have discovered the same problem with my 24-105 lens and the Canon uv-haze filter. The two lightly touch creating a very small darkish dot at the center of the lens and an out-of-focus area on the image. A rubber band around the filter thread just before screwing it in tight and holds the two far enough apart to fix the problem. (That millimeter, of course, will then antagonize any vignette problems.)
