hate to be contrary but I've just got a B+W 82mm UV-Haze XS-PRO Digital filter for my 24-70 II and it fits perfectly flush to the edge of the lens filter thread. Lens cap fits on the front thread fine even though only shallow thread and the Lens Hood fits on perfectly and clicks into place as if no filter was present.

I'd recommend this filter for sure as pretty much the best option for this lens.

B&H says this one is discontinued and that

B+W 82mm XS-Pro UV MRC-Nano 010M Filter

has replaced it.  B&H has the caution someone else mentioned in a reply.  Do you think it would be OK or might this be different than the one you recommended above?

thanks very much

the one i mentioned and bought is the B+W 82mm XS-Pro UV MRC-Nano 010M Filter you mentioned. I just happened to type above 'Haze' rather than 'MRC-Nano'. I got the important part in though which is 'XS-PRO'.

The ones that are discontinued are the old B+W 'Slim' filters.
