Filter Holder for 14-24 lens if you’re interested
1

This is the filter holder I put together for the 14-24 f2.8 lens. It has 3 filter slots for 4x6 filters. Lee makes an adapter ring that will fit in a slot for a 105mm CPL. I think a wide angle Lee hood will work in the last slot leaving room for 2 filters. The angle of view misses the last slot by at least 1/8” on a DX camera. The adapter slips on snug but can be turned if needed.
Here’s some pictures of the adapter.

mmalkin15 sent me some pictures of his adapter and gave me permission to post them. He used a Lee 100mm push on filter holder to make his.

Do you think it could be used on FX?

Re: Filter Holder for 14-24 lens if you’re interested

Hello,

That is really GREAT news!

As I am really needing Grads on my 14-24, I would be VERY grateful if you can answer me these questions:

1.- How is the thing fixed to the 14-24 hood? Is it glued or it is possible to put and take out?

2.- I guess the black strip around the filter holder is put in order to keep out reflections from the rear side of the holder...What is it exactly?

3.- There is something I did not understand...Did you make it yourself of it is possible to buy from somewhere?

Thanks in advance...I am really pleased that you posted this.

Kind regards,

Rafael

They both look good. It would make sense for someone to start manufacturing something like that.

Gee, cool

It looks like an infrared anti-missile device to be mounted on an Abrams.
Not kidding, now. Cool job. Congrats.

Nice, but this lens intresting at first for full format, and this holder is little for FX format.

Re: Filter Holder for 14-24 lens if you’re interested

Thank you for the great idea. I have a Cokin X-Pro holder and possibly I could also adapt it, too. In any case, there is only one thing that you might want to work into your design, if you haven't already:

The filter has to be very straight or you can get distortion and weirdness in your shots. Maybe just a "stop" on the holder to help align it when you push it on would work.

Anyway, I'd be happy to pay for this kind of thing, though making it myself sounds like fun. If you're interested, please let me know.

Thanks,
Mike

i think ive got a cleaner way for dx

shim an extension ring (one slightly smaller than ID of petal hood) to fit tightly inside petal hood; slide it down in till it stops. I used some velcro type material for shimming. If a filter screwed onto this ring wont clear the front element then put on one more extension, adding as necessary.

I have done this with my sigma 15 fish, and it works elegantly, and you can either use the original hood or snap in a lens cover on the filter or filter ring extension if bare. See the link and follow along the steps:

I used a sunpack extension ring above

with a tamron cap above; the nikon cap I use now looks much better ;^P

Nice, now if one can try it on D3 to see if there is any vignetting or not.

Hi!

I guess rondv is scared with the success...as he does not respond!

Well..or perhaps he is working on a massive production of the new "rondverter" for the 14-24!!

Anyway, it has been really cool to share the idea with us...

BUT, I am still wondering how you widen the spare perforated lens hood in order to fix the lee sliders into it...humm....

Don't know what I'd be scared of.

Don't plan to build any more.

Rafael, I haven't been around to respond but below is a quick explanation of how I made the adapter. I don't have a D3 so I don't know if it will work but it does work great on a D300. The replacement lens cap and filter slides are around $40.00 and the PVC is about $7.00.

Where did you buy a replacement lens hood for the 14-24mm? I compliment you on your brillant solution to using filters on this lens. Well done!

Thanks! Not the hood but the lens cover at Adorama.

Mike, in the first photo look at the bottom where the filter is clear. I left a stop at 45 degrees all around in case I want to turn the filter and to insure the adapter is aligned properly.

Anyway, I'd be happy to pay for this kind of thing, though making it
myself sounds like fun. If you're interested, please let me know.
