A few images taken using the Lee filter system (full size) on my XF14mm lens have featured a curious semicircular artefact. I thought at first it was flare but on closer inspection I've realised it is reflections of the lettering on the front lens flange. An example is attached - I've bumped up the contrast to make them more obvious. There is (hopefully) an easy fix to this. I've applied some black tape to cover up the white letters. Checking through there EVF this seems effective but I'll try it on my next shoot and see how it goes. I haven't seen the problem with my other Fujifilm lenses (18-135 and 35 f1.4). If anyone has encountered it before I'd like to hear their experiences and fixes if appropriate.
Hi! Today I was playing around with my X-T1 with 18-135mm lens trying out some long exposure things in combination with the Lee Seven5 Big Stopper and Polarizer. I found it pretty annoying that at a focal length of 18mm the Lee system always giving me a bit of vignetting (http://www.fuji-x-forum.com/topic/308-filter-sets-for-x-lenses/?p=6868). But by knowing this limitation I always zoomed in a bit towards 23 mm when using polarizer or Big Stopper. But today I found out something interesting! The front end of the XF18-13mm lens (the part or system where you can click your lens hood into) is almost exactly the same size and shape as the shape of the Lee adapter ring. So it turns out that the Lee filter holder will attach easily on the lens itself, although you cannot turn the holder completely around because of the fact that on the lens theres is only a bulkier part at the left and right side of the lens. But aslong as you don't want to rotated the holder completely around this is no issue! The holder connects firm enough but I think it is possible to get it off with a bit of force! So I'm not responsible for any damage to your gear when trying this out! (http://www.fuji-x-forum.com/topic/308-filter-sets-for-x-lenses/?p=5247) Oké, now where over the technical part we continue the really cool part... Without the adapter ring the holder including polarizer is approximately 3mm closer to the lens and at 18mm it not showing any vignetting anymore!! I don't know if this will work for every Fujinon lens with a filter diameter of 67mm, because I only own the XF18-135 mm. See the attached pictures (don't judge the quality, I was just playing around)
