Sigma can install a rear-mounted filter holder on your Canon 14mm F1.8 Art lens
Lens manufacturer Sigma has announced an interesting new service: users of the company's Canon mount 14mm F1.8 DG HSM Art lens can now pay the company to fit a rear mount filter holder onto their lens. The FHR-11 filter holder is designed to allow gel filters to be held over the rear element of the lens so photographers can enjoy "more freedom of expression."
Those who want to fit the holder themselves can buy it without the installation service, but keep in mind that damage caused by erroneous fitting will not be covered by the lens' warranty. Sigma says the time the fitting will take depends on local services, but in Japan users are being told to expect the lens to be away for a week.
In the UK, the FHR-11 on its own costs £35 (~$45 USD), while the filter+install service costs £60 (~$80 USD). Sigma USA has yet to release official US pricing. For more information see the Sigma website.
