DA 12-24 -can i use Protection and plz filters

Hi all

I have the 12-24 but use no filters except for a cl. polarizer. However, we are going to yellowstone and I am considering a hoya pro1 clear or UV filter to protect the lens from spray. Can I put a Cl. on top of this and not have vignetting?

Stacking filters especially on a wide angle zoom lens, is widely considered to be a no-no. because you're adding two extra pieces of glass to the light path that will - because of their flatness increase the chance of ghosting and flare.

I personally bought a Hoya "slim" UV protector and like it very much. It does not cause vigneting. However, I cannot use the front cap anymore. What I do is I keep the hood all the time and it is just fine.
