The more I research, the more I learn...it's amazing!!!!!!!! :blush:

Looking at the Lee system, it indicates on the Matching pages...
https://www.leefilters.com/index.php/camera/system-match
...that the 100mm system will darken at least portions of the image when the lens is used at settings wider than 10mm but that the 150mm system does not intrude into the image. That means to me that other-brand 100mm filters will intrude upon and darken portions of the frame at some ultra-wide lens setting; correct?

Hmm...I'm finding quickly that any 150mm filter system might cost many-hundred$. I'll have to see how all this goes, but it's fairly obvious that while I certainly can continue to use the F-M 100mm system on all my other lenses, if I want to use rectangular grad-ND or ND filters with the 17-14, I'll have to settle for a bit of corner darkening or spend a bunch of buck$.

Well, I've got this new 7-14 and the incoming Four Thirds SWD 12-60/2.8-4 and 50-200 (and their adapters) to get used to, so I'll be plenty busy enough for a few weeks.

...Some of the filters sytems mentioned, such as the H&Y, seem to accomodate 100mm-wide rectangular filters. My inference is that the 100s will not cause cornerdarkening with the lens set at 7mm. Is this correct? Or do I need Fotodiox 168mm-wide slide-in filters to avoid cornerdarkening?
From my experience and I have used the Nisi system with 3D printing (2 different types) holder and the H&Y holder. The 3D print can give dark corner if you tilt the filter. As for the H&Y holder you can tilt up to 40º to start having vignetting.

I've received both the used, excellent Oly PRO 7-14/2.8 and almost all of a Lee SW150 filter system.. I've compared the 7-14 against my Leica 8-18, and I'm keeping the Oly.

The Lee SW150 system seems to be quite high quality and designed for no vignetting even with 7mm lenses.. Here it is with a 72mm screw-on adapter, the filterholder, and one grad-ND filter. The adapter for the 7-14 is back-ordered.

Here are some throw-away images from my 7-14 and EM1-3; I'm quite happy with it. All were HHHRs and are cropped top and bottom.

After a long photo hibernation this winter, I'm back with some snaps from the past week after receiving my new H&Y 100mm filter holder for my trusty old 7-14 pro. Damn, I'm glad I held out because the system is pretty perfect for me! It's so easy to slap on and take off. Anyway...I survived and avoided all of the madness in the city this weekend and captured these from within earshot of the helicopters and tear gas. Anyway, some of these combine a haida 10 stop and live comp to provide the somewhat...2001 a space odyssey feel. here's the filter holder thread that caught my attention. Big thanks to Nam!

I know it’s a 7-14mm lens, but I’m so used to seeing only the 7mm end, you surprised me with these 14mm shots!
Thanks for noticing! Wanted to take in the grand nature of the locations, but also wanted some close-up detail. Took a few 7mm shots of my Jeep on the lakebed, but liked this one the best. And the wider shots of the ponds brought in detail on the L&R sides that subtracted from the subject. So I moved in and took the shot at 14mm.
