Why not? My 16-35 is not very rosy with SOME filters, a bit more prone to flare. My 14=24, while, due to very curved front element, somewhat flares, not much, BTW, with Lee system over it, was not usable in even smallest amount of backlight. That is why any new filter of mine is tested to death, big torture for me. My former Nik 18, which is not best Nikkor, was not accepting ANY filter. But OP say his 28-300 is not good with filter, what I desagree about, already having dozens of thousands images with some kind of filters over it. Dimitri.
