Lee Filters SW150 - Tamron 15-30mm adapter fits Pentax 15-30mm variant

Dear All

Just sent the following message to Lee Filters:

"I purchased the Tamron 15-30mm F/2.8 SW150 adapter for my new Pentax 15-30mm /F/2.8 variant, and I can confirm that the Tamron version works perfectly with the Pentax lens, which has an identical built-in lens shade.

Therefore Pentax K1 owners, using the Pentax 15-30mm F/2.8 lens can simply buy the Tamron adapter in the safe and sure knowledge that that Tamron adapter will work perfectly with the Pentax"

Thanks for the heads up, this is good news
I have had good luck with Haida filters in the past and may give their system a shot.

so, is the combo K1 and 15-30 worth upgrading from a K3 and DA15?
The 15-30 alone seems a reason to me to get the K1. Both for it's versatility (lens & tiltscreen) and hopefully dynamic range and IQ.

Trying to get a sense of your enthousiasm here..?

On the wonderpana: do i get it right that cpl and ND are screw-on and gradual ND's are square types?
It needs to fit three filters for sure: cpl, ND and gradual ND..

On the SW150, pretty sure it does, but does it fit three filters as well?
thank you.. :-)

1st, and my experience is limited with the 15-30, it's really good, so good that it replaced my Zeiss ZK 28/2 and that I'm willing to devote a LOT of space and weight to in in my rollerbag.


2nd, yes, both Fotodiox's CPL and 4-stop ND are screw-ons (and are antireflection coated), and the slide-in adapters have two slots, so a TOTAL of 3 filters including at least one screw-on and at least one slide-in can be used at once. The grad-nd or other graduated slide-ins are 150X225mm rectangular.

It's a good system, overall, IMO. I have an extra pair of slide-in adapter 'ears'; e-mail me at jeffreybehr(at)cox(dot)net if you buy a WonderPana66 adapterplate and want to save some money on the 'ears'. I'll include a link to them on Fotodiox's site as soon as I find one.
