Comments about Tiffen Tiffen 77mm Skylight Wide Angle Thin Glass Filter:

The one downside of ultra-wide angle lenses is the size, and resulant cost, of filters. The Tiffen Thin Glass 77mm is a great deal on basic protection for my Tokina 11-16mm zoom.

Comments about Tiffen Tiffen 77mm Skylight Wide Angle Thin Glass Filter:

I would give this filter 4 stars because of a absence of filter tread. Any way ,today I have discovered that My Dot Line 77mm WHITE BALANCE LENSCAP purchased recently is a perfect cover for the occasion.
I had no idea that it was 2 pieces white balance cap and the top part is very tight fit for this gem.
No vignetting on my Tokina 11-16 2.8.Its a thin filter of course.
I was considering returning it before that.
A keeper with this price.I would like to include some pictures of using the filter,but they are only to available for review and I'm just trying to help a good product.In this combination is a winner.

The Sigma lens cap does not fit on the filter. This is a major fault.

Comments about Tiffen Tiffen 77mm Skylight Wide Angle Thin Glass Filter:

With thin wide angle filter installed you can't put the lens cap on to put the glass back in your bag. You have to either remove the filter or go without the cap. Kind of a pain in the butt, but it's such a great lens for the money, I really don't care so much about the cap.

Comments about Tiffen Tiffen 77mm Skylight Wide Angle Thin Glass Filter:

Good filter but I was surprised when I try to close lens (Canon EF 24-70 1/2.8L USM) whit front lens cap. Filter is too thin for cap. But lens hood is realy big and protect front filter from fingerprints.
