Way back when the Nikkor 14-24, Lee Filters said they would make a system for the new lens. The reason for the new system, is that in it’s current configuration, the Nikkor 14-24mm lens does not take standard filters. Indeed this has been the biggest gripe of some people.
And fair enough. If you would to do graduated neutral density type photography for instance, then you really could use this lens without making something from a milk carton or some other DIY device.
Enter the SW150. The starter kit contains a filter holder, adapter collar for the lens and a 2 stop graduated filter.
We received an email on the system and I can’t wait to get my hands on it all. Here’s the press release:
LEE Filters SW150 now available!
Now available to order, the new LEE Filters SW150 Filter System specifically designed to fit the Nikon 14-24mm lens.
LEE Filters have developed an entirely new filter system that enables you to use graduated and standard filters on a Nikon 14-24mm lens.
Initially being offered only for the 14-24mm, the system comes as a Starter Kit containing the holder, a unique adaptor collar for the lens, a 0.6ND (2 stop) hard graduated filter and a neoprene lens cap that fits over the collar when the holder is not attached.
A full range of resin graduated and standard filters will be available to order but there will be no Polarizer or Big Stopper available for this system. The filter sizes for the system are 150mm x 170mm for graduated filters and 150mm x 150mm for standard filters. The holder is fully rotational enabling greater flexibility when positioning graduated filters.
Also available is the SW150 System Adapter, this allows you to attach to the SW150 onto any standard LEE adapter ring, enabling you to use the SW150 on any other lenses you have.
