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.
