    Default Filter vignetting

    My Cokin P series filter system is causing vignetting with the 14-35 f/2 when it is used in conjunction with a polarising filter screwed onto the lens.
    Cokin make a filter holder for wide angle lenses, the BPW400A, which should solve the problem, but some reviewers say that it has not solved their vignetting problems, albeit with different camera/lens combinations.
    Anyone here had experience of the BPW400A on the 14-35 f/2?
    Unfortunately we don't have a shop where I can go and try it out for myself.

    I have used the P wide-angle holder with a 9-18 4/3 lens and it worked fine (no vignetting). It seems like it ought to work with your lens, I should think. Good luck!

    Thanks Rich. The holder arrived today and is a partial success in that the vignetting starts at 18mm, and it is small enough to be cropped out. So I am well pleased given the price.
