Sorry for posting to an old thread, but this has me concerned. I have a 31mm coming and I really like to put a B+W filter on my lenses for protection. The Nano coating works well. However, the newer filters seem to be slimmer than the picture of the Hoya above:

Has anyone used these filters? I was planing to get the 007 nano MRC, but now I'm concerned.

Thanks

If your worried just put a de-glassed filter on the lens and this will give it a bigger gap.

Which mount do you use?

The new XS-Pro mount seems to be slimmer than the F-Pro.

I was thinking about that. I was considering throwing a screw on lens hood--I didn't want to extend it too much further to avoid any possibility of vignetting. I heard the builtin lens hood doesn't do much for flare. Although the lens isn't that bad with flare to begin with.

F-pro
Awesome. Thanks for confirming. That's what I'll order then. The F-Pro looks similar in height to the problematic Tiffen showed in the pictures earlier in this thread, which is why I was concerned.

I use a number of slim frame filters and I have yet to find one that cause this problem - I use Hoya, Lee, B+W, Zeiss and Singh-ray filters.
