GrimmSleeper,

I wouldn’t have thought of doing it that way, but it seems like it should work. One nice thing about placing the filter where you have, there should be less chance of vignetting than if you put a filter on the wide-angle attachment. One question: if you put on a filter, then put on the wide-angle attachment, then zoom in to telephoto and manually focus on a subject……. does the subject stay in perfect focus when you zoom out to wide? If it does, and there’s no vignetting (darkening of the corners), then you’ve got a good money-saving idea!

Of course, the more filters you stack up, the more glass-to-air surfaces there are, which cause slight reflections, thus degrading the image. But I think you should be able to get away with 2 filters. BTW, many filters are available with anti-reflection coatings, which should help things.

Good luck,

Ken Hull
