Re: Found a 95mm Filter that will work. Heliopan 95mm Neutral Density (ND) 3.0 Filter

In reviewing the lens, Ken Rockwell makes this observation (he has a picture in his review, as well)

"The filter ring never rotates, and 95mm filters easily screw on and off inside the fixed metal upper and lower guards.

There's a catch: my big professional 95mm filters from Hoya and Schneider are mounted in 9mm-thick rings, excluding their rear threads. With these standard filters, there is visible vignetting in the corners, making these filters far less useful unless you're cropping the sides.

In other words, this is one of the few lenses that demands special thin filters to work well. This is sad.

Don't bother with polarizers on ultrawide lenses. The polarization of the natural world varies so much over this lens' huge angle-of-view that polarizers lead to weird dark bands over your picture with ultrawide lenses."
