    Recently purchased a Panasonic 7-14mm and today was the first time using an adapted rubber lens hood and Hitech Holder with a 100mm soft graduated filter. Works really well, definately wont be needing my 9-18mm anymore. :)

    Looks very crisp, indeed!
     
  3. Make and model of your adapted rubber hood?
    Any chance of posting and image of the filter holder, hood & lens combo?

    No problem...

    Rubberhood was a 58mm lens hood from Crooked Imaging on ebay. All I did was take off the glued metal ring mount, pushed it inside out (as the ridge had a better fit for the filter holder, then it easily slides for a snug fit over both lenses. Perfectly stable aswell.

    Works with both the Samyang fisheye and 7-14mm. I can get 2 filters on the 7-14mm without vignetting, but only 1 filter on the samyang with some vignetting, but not enough to be an issue.

    This was the dealbreaker for me initially when I originaly went for the 9-18mm as I needed to use filters, but this works perfectly and now I don`t need the 9-18mm anymore :).

    This is the auction, but looks like they have sold out. I actually bought both the 52mm and 58mm version, and the 58mm version was the perfect fit.
