with that design...

Thank you and I agree the 14-24 lack of filter thread feels a bit like skating on thin ice. However, the design does have some built in protection - the lens cap could stop gushing oil and the hood itself is permanent and protrudes beyond the glass. Of course no filters means no CPs, ND's and other artistic tools.

But Lord in heaven this glass got class - color rendition, contrast and resolution.

I've got a lot more testing/playing to do but I can't see myself sending it back to Ritz.
It is indeed a 'special' lens.
