Cokin P Series and Nikon 28-70 AFS Lens

Discussion in 'Nikon' started by Richard Robbins, Jan 1, 2004.

  1. I just started using the Cokin P Series filter system.

    I had been led to believe that I would not have vignetting issues with
    the Nikon 28-70 f/2.8 AFS lens. Unfortunately, vignetting is a problem at
    wider focal lengths.

    Has anyone come up with a workaround for this? I was thinking about
    trying to cut down a P Series holder to see if that would help. Any
    suggestions?

    You can certainly gain something by cutting off all but the rearmost
    filter slots of the holder.
    Of course, that would limit you to using only one filter at a time.

  3. What Cokin filter series would be expected to work with this lens without
    vignetting?

    Try the Cokin P "wide-angle" holder (only one slot) if you don't want to
    cut down your existing one to a single slot. It's about $12 US.

  5. Wow. I had no idea that such a thing even existed. Thanks!

    If the P-series won't do it, even with a cut-down standard adapter or
    the wide-angle one (according to my catalogue it is designed for 19-20
    mm lenses), then only the X-Pro series would do - and that costs a bomb
    :-(
    I did consider it for my 12-24 lens, but the price rather put me off.
    Since I'm predominantly digital, I've made my own adapters to allow me
    to use P-series filters. No good for full-frame, however.

    How about a step-up ring?
