dear friend, hoya does not suck, the reason it got bent is human error. tongue.gif anyway, if its badly bend, the only way to take it off is the break the glass, and cut the from side, bend it inwards to take out (that is how i help my customer remove jammed filter)

yes u can find them, the real name is call "step up ring/filter" hope with the name, it will ease your search.

When I was surfing on B&H. I found 2 different items. One is Sony 62mm MC UV and claimed to have T* coating, another is the Carl Zeiss branded 62mm MC UV with T*.

Both seem to be the same but are priced for 53USD and 78USD respectively. I'm curious about their difference

any ND filter for tokina 11-16? should i go for cokin (or alike) series for wideangle? i saw plenty website complain on the vignetting for P series, but no idea how the wide angle series does.. or should i get a stepupring from 77mm-82mm and buy a flexi-ND filter at 82mm?

Thanks

erm, there is this logic most ppl dont follow.
u use ND, usually for landscape.
for landscape, usually use darker aperture, eg F8
at F8, usually vignetting is gone.

hence, i really dont know what the hell the review online or people online is complaining about, they uses F2.8 for a landscape shoot, isnt that silly?

okay, here to answer ur question.
i) i suggest to go for screw on filter. but u might still loose about 2mm of shooting angle, meaning vignet free at 13mm F8.

ii) the wide angle case. if u use just ND, u can turn the holder 90degree(filter fit in horizontally) to use it. If u use GND, where filter must be vertically to use, u may still have vignetting issue at 11mm.

unless u go for 100mm filter holders, Lee filter or Cokin Z.

iii) the step up ring will make any vignetting worst (from my experience)

and worst, 'flexi' (actual name is called FADER ND) is actually two CPL reversed, if u know, UWA doesnt work well with CPL.

so anything at 11-12mm is unusable? Tian-Ya Wide Angle Square Filter and Cokin "P" BPW-400 wide angle Holder is it the same? how these two perform?

i) they are the same, the TianYa is copy/pirate of cokin P series. i cant really say, coz i have not used wideangle P on tokina1116, but even Lee filter will lose 1-2mm on FF.
ii) yes i know, i just sold all my cokin P, the money just enough for Lee holder only, not to mention filters and rings and the stupid CPL cost 1.5k!
iii) yes, not uneven, usually is the top left side, it is not fully polarized. hence u get a bright spot on top left, depend on u, some ppl can accept, some ppl just PP away. it wont work effectively, doesnt meant it cant work at all. smile.gif its up to your solving skill to fix/improve on the issue. smile.gif
