Works fine at 28mm or larger

Well designed & manufactured, fits securely while supporting filter holder close to lens. Only complaint was that nowhere did I see it defined that you need the "wide angle" adapter ring when shooting wider than 28mm, which was a bit of a surprise when I used it on my 24-70mm lens. Heavy vignetting at 28mm and wider.

This item was 1 of 2 other Lee Filters products (the 100 mm Big stopper 3.0 ND Filter and 100mm Foundation Kit were the other 2). I purchased so as to shoot long exposures. I used these items together for 1 long day and every exposure using the filter had a light leak. I took the time to document my experience and publish it to my website: http://leepirtle.com/leefilter01/. I contacted B&H, providing the above URL and they suggested refraction/reflection might be the reason and said that they would like to see some more test images shot at f/5.6 and f/16 so they can rule out what the actual issue is. I also provided that URL to Lee Filters who responded: "Once in a while, the lens needs to be taped as well". At this point I am waiting for enough sun to try the above suggestions because I want this to work but I am not pleased with my initial results.

                        I use this with my Nikon 85mm 1.4D. I went with this instead of the thinner (and more expensive) wide-angle version since, at the moment, I'm using it on at a longer focal length. I cannot say how it behaves on a wider lens like the 16-35 f4, for example, which also has a 77mm filter thread. However, I have a 67mm non-wide angle adapter ring for my Nikon 28mm 1.8G and that has no vignetting issues at all.The adapter ring is sturdy, and I experience no vignetting at the 85mm focal length. I have it set up to accept 2 LEE filters as well as the LEE circular polarizer (with FilterDude 105mm Accessory Ring). Everything fits, no issues - it does everything I could ask for.

                                      Works exactly how it's supposed to. A nice cheap filter ring that allows me to throw all my Lee filters onto the front of my Canon 70-200mm without any problems.

                                      Product ships in the usual Lee cardboard packaging, which is fine as I just throw it into my foundation kit pouch with my 82mm wide adapter ring.

                                        I use this on my 77mm Canon lenses for connection to the LEE Filters Foundation Kit. Fits perfectly as if Canon had made it specifically for the lens.

                                          This is my first time owning the Lee system, I ordered the regular adapter not knowing it is best suited at a min focal length of 28mm. I regularly shoot at 24mm or below so will be exchanging it for the wide angle version. It is hard to swallow paying twice the cost for a smaller unit but I hope it is worth not getting the vignette.
