Hello Dean,
thanks a lot for sharing some examples looking in to the corners it really look like the 6lbs of the Zen Dome pay off :) .

Best regards,
Matthias

Hello Mike
personally I come to the point that It might be better co consider the 17-40 even so I never owned it. For the 16-35 you will really need a Dome which is big but you also you should be really sure that someone made the combination working. You will not find any decent and affordable Diopter for 82mm thread (if it is required).

The topside test of the 16-35 vs 17-40 show that there is no real gap between the lenses. Several persons are using the 17-40 + 5Dmk2 with very good results example Tony Wu a lot of his whale shots are with the 17-40 and a ProOne dome (ok this is also a bit a special one).

I guess it really depends more on the glass you have available in front of the lens then on the F2.8 compared to the F4.

Matthias

In Topic: Pole cam + Magic Filters / yes or no?

Dear All,
thanks a lot for your feedback. I will begin with ISO 400 and 1/400s and see what aperture I will get out of that. I hope that the weather is on my side. After that I will see in which direction I can go with the settings ....

First I have to finalize my DIY project in the next few days.

Best regards,
Matthias

Hi Viz'art, hi Drew,
thanks a lot for your feedback. I was kind of expecting that due to the shallow waters the filter might turn out to cause a color cast.

Best regards,
Matthias
