What filter system for da 12-24

That's the question that I have. What system would be the best for da 12-24 ? I want to avoid the vignetting so was thinking that the 150 system from Nisi would be the best choice. What are your thoughts and impressions about it dear pentaxians ?

Nisi v5 filter holter has a 82 mm filter thread + adapter rings to 77. I suppose the 100 mm square filters are just ok. 150 and 180 mm are more expensive. I don't thik 100 mm filter would vignette with 12-24 unless you use many of those toghether. remember that with v5 the circular P.L. is bundled and by construction it does not take space

I use a Cokin p frame. It vignettes wider than 15mm so don't use that one.

I use the nisi v5 82mm system (adapter to 77). Perfect. no vignetting whatsoever.. the filters themselves (100mm) are very good also.. very neutral.

I use 77 circular filters all the time on the 12-24. A thin profile Circular polarizer works great

Yes I use a Kenko Zeta which has been good.

Lee recommend their 100mm line. So far I trsut Lee for ther filter matching selector: LEE System Match - find the recommended System for each of your lenses.
Get Haida, I have no opinion about Nisi, but they seem fine. Cheaper systems often have one or the othrer problem.

Will the other square filters fit to the Nisi V5 holder ? I found Hitech filters quite interesting and pricing is also more interesting than nisi filters.

A single-slot cokin P vignettes on that lens? That's surprising to me. It doesn't on my 77mm lenses, including the 10-20mm (old) Sigma at 10mm.

Oh, that's three slots. But the 1-slot model (sorry I don't have the number) almost surely won't. I don't believe they made the one-slot model many years ago, so I cut the two front slots off with a saw for my 17mm lens (on 35mm.)
