    Hi everyone

    Just wondering if anyone has experience of the p size filters on this lens and whether they are likely to cause vignetting at the wide end?

    I had been considering a number of different filter systems as my first foray away from screw-in, and had my eye in he SRB Photographic stuff which are P size. http://srb-photographic.co.uk/elite-bundle-kit-11224-p.asp

    Their kits come with up to 82mm adapter size which would fit the Tamron lens, but not sure if that would work without vignette.

    Thanks

    What type of camera are you using? The cokin website does state that the P series filters can be used with a standard kit lens (18-55mm and up to 82mm thread) with no problems.

    I researched the Cokin P series before picking up a Nisi holder. Down to 24mm i seem to recall the P series would be fine, any wider and vignetting / holder appears in shot.

    Quote from below seems to confirm it "the P series are intrended for lenses down to about 20mm or 24m. Any wide than this and the edge of the filter tends to creep into the shot."

    Thanks I suppose I should have referenced Cokin for info although I was looking at the third-party option.

    I'm on Nikon d750, but I don't believe that makes a difference it would be the lens surely?

    I would guess @twhite87 was probably asking because on a crop sensor camera with ff glass you're using a reduced portion of the glass so vignetting is less of an issue.
