It's a real shame that Zeiss released this lens with a permanent lens shade. I don't really see what purpose it serves that couldn't be served as a detachable shade. Big props to them for making a great UWA lens that has a filter thread, but what a stupid decision to affix a permanent hood, meaning no Lee filters.

i have considered cutting the shade off mine...

i have the zeiss 95mm cpl...  and would like to use other filters...

i have considered using a metal cutting rope saw if i decide to do this myself...

or more logically i will probably seek out a skilled jeweler or watch maker for the task...

then look for some sort of rubber hood slide on replacement...
