Hello

 

Can anyone share experience with lee filters on x pro 1, 2

 

which version of the lee system do you own? Are there any OVF view restrictions?

 

or do you use screw in filters only. 

 

I'm interested in Grad filters, ND, Polarizer

Well, you are clearly going to see the filter holder in front of the OvF, even the 18-55 lens kit protrudes into the OvF on the X-Pro2, which I find rather annoying. Hence the EvF in that case.

 

As personal choice, I dislike the screw on filters, it forces me to buy several of them while the holder can have several rings for my need and cost a LOT cheaper. Plus side, if you ever decide to change system, your holder kit system can still be used. Not so plus side, it's a bit annoying to use in a rush, then again if you are doing long exposure in a rush, you better not do it at all.

 

Do keep in mind I am speaking from a still photography perspective, if you are filming, the screw on filter is invaluable as time saver and practicability.

I DO NOT RECOMMEND X-PRO2 FOR THIS TYPE PHOTOS. IT HAS HOT PIXEL ISSUES.
