Re: Ian

No, unfortunately I don't get your drift. I still think that we are talking about two different unrelated things. It looks as if you were replying to somebody else (please see my original post).

I did not mention the color (of anything) or lens coatings anywhere. My question was about the most appropriate SIZE of filters (filter system) to fit all my current zoom lenses (from 10 to 300 mm on an APS-C camera) without causing serious vignetting. Can you please explain the relevance of lens coating while choosing the filter size?

You have not got the jist.

Every lens manufacturer coats his lens surfaces with some form of say Multi Coating.

Each manufacturer has a different colour of coating.

So what looks one colour on one lenses will be different on another.

There is NO Standard lens coating.

Do you get my drift.
