I have the 14-24 and as we know, it does not take filters, save for the ones made by Lee. I have used Lee in the past and like them. Does the Lee filter system made for the 14-24 work as well as their other filter systems?

The other option is to buy a 16-35 which accepts filters. However, I need to buy two polorizer filters because mine are damaged and no longer fit well.

My plan is to photograph Zion National park, so this will require grad filters and a polorizer.

14-24:

1. The 14-24 will have distortion at the wider angles.

2. with the Lee system I can use grads, but will it accept a Polorizer ( I know it would have to be a large Lee)

16-35:

1. Practical zoom range; not many landscapes will require anything less than 16, but what about those slot canyons?

2. Accepts filters; still need the Lee system for grads, but I can use my graduated ND.


Cost: $1259 for yet another lens.


Which lens will give me the sharpest most accurate image? I will shoot with a D3x.
