I don't understand all the whinging about filter sizes.

I have a range of quality 77mm ND filters. I have a few dirt cheap e-bay step up rings which means I can use the same ND filters on every single lens I own. I can spend $2.20 to get a 72mm to 77mm step up ring and then I can use every filter I own on the thing.

Nobody likes big fat heavy lenses, but high quality super wides always seem to be on the big side of things. If it were any smaller then I'd be seriously questioning the quality of the thing.

I can't wait for some direct comparisons at 14mm with the 14mm prime. This will be interesting.
