Can I fit 3 filters without vignetting?

Can I fit 3 filters without vignetting?
Asked by: Aniell
We have not tested 3 filters for vignetting on this lens, We simple do not not recommend stacking multiple filters. With an extreme wide angle lens there is the likelihood it will cause vignetting as well as image degradation due to multiple surfaces that the light must pass through that can cause reflections.

question

Has anyone used this lens on a DJI Inspire 1 camera?
Asked by: Anonymous
Ive used it on an inspire 2 . Its in the heavy side of what the gimbal can handle at higher speeds . Buy the lightest filters you can . You may need to make some counter weights for it as well

question

What do I lose if I mount this on a Panasonic GH4?
Asked by: Bob
This is a great lens. The Olympus lens has no image stabilization (IS) because it is in the body on Olympus Micro 4/3 systems. So compared to a Panasonic micro 4/3 lens, you lose IS. But if you are mostly using the lens on a tripod that probably does not matter much.

question

What is the close focus distance? 6 (in the B&H Product Highlights) or 9.84 (25 cm) (in the product specs)
Asked by: Richard
Never found out, as I haven't used it for anything this close. Don't have it with me to check, but it's been more than adequate for anything I've taken pictures of. Even without the spec update, it's a great lens; I;ve been very happy with it. Sorry I can't be more helpful.
