Lee SW150 MKII Filter Holder
The Lee SW150 Mark II Filter Holder has been designed specifically to fit ultra-wide-angle lenses, such as the Nikon 14mm f2.8 D AF ED and Canon EF 11-24mm f4L USM. The design of the SW150 Mark II has been adapted from its predecessor and is now not only compatible with Lee's range of SW150 ND graduated and standard filters (150x170m), but also the new SW150 polariser and Little, Big and Super Stoppers. Due to the size of the front element of ultra-wide-angle lenses, these filters are larger than those in the standard 100mm range.
Key Features: Lee SW150 Mark II Filter Holder
Get creative with ultra-wideangle lenses
The holder comes assembled with two filter slots, enabling you to use neutral density graduated filters in combination with other filters. Landscape photographers have long understood the benefits of ultra-wide-angle lenses, but their design constraints made the use of filters virtually impossible. Now, the SW150 Mark II filter holder opens up opportunities for the creative use of filters, without the need to be concerned about vignetting. The holder fits to the lens via a lens adapter (not included, available separately). The SW150 Mark II filter holder comes fitted with a Lightshield Shield which helps to prevent unwanted back reflections and creates a light tight seal enabling the use of both the Little and Big Stopper.
The SW150 Mark II fits via a lens adaptor that has been specifically designed for that particular lens (the adaptor is purchased separately from the filter holder).
Each adaptor consists of a front ring, a compression ring and a locking ring. When fitted, these form a collar that remains on the lens at all times.
The SW150 Mark II system can be used with the following lenses:
- Nikon AF-S Nikkor 14-24mm f/2.8G ED
- Nikon 14mm f2.8 D AF ED
- Canon EF 14mm f2.8 L II USM
- Samyang 14mm f/2.8 ED AS IF UMC
- Sigma 12-24mm f4.5-5.6 DG HSM II
- Sigma 20mm f1.4 HSM Art
- Tamron 15-30mm f2.8 SP Di VC USD
- Tokina AT-X 16-28mm f/2.8 PRO FX
- Canon EF 11-24mm f4L USM - Please note that due to the physical size of this lens, and the extremely wide angle of view, the SW150 filter holder will vignette at the widest angles. To avoid this we recommend using a minimum focal length of 13.5mm when using the filter holder with two filter slots and 12.5mm when using the holder with one filter slot.
Additional lenses will be added soon
SW150 Screw-In Lens Adaptors
A new range of SW150 screw-in lens adaptors are now available. These adaptors work with both the original and Mark II Filter Systems, enabling either to be fitted to lenses with a screw-in filter thread. This means that the system is no longer limited to just ultra-wideangle lenses.
The new screw-in lens adaptors are available in the following filter thread sizes: 72mm • 77mm • 82mm • 86mm • 95mm • 105mm
