Pentax 12-24 Lee Filters Question


I am looking to buy a Pentax 12-24 lens. I'm currently using the Lee Filter System with my Pentax 16-50 which has the same 77mm filter size.

I was just wondering if anyone has used the Lee Filter system on the 12-24 and if they had found any vignetting when wide open at 12mm?

I haven't used those filters, but I remember after dropping my lens, the hod no longer fit well and sat at an angle. This made its edges become visible in the corners of the image, so I would guess that the same thing would happen with a big filter holder. 12mm is pretty wide after all!

I know some of my cokin P size filters vignette at 12mm, but it's gone by 15mm.
I should note I use the narrow holder on this lens.

the larger lee size should probably be OK.

It would be worth trying in any case.
