Speaking w/ the Lee Filter inhouse tech supervisor we concluded the best approach to using a filter on the 14-24 is to remove the hood.

The question(s) I have been facing are if and how to do this. I called Nikon to see if they had any unrepairable models that I could either purchase or be given to setup some test experiments regarding cutting or grinding the hood. (The rep was initially reluctant, but then after a little more conversation started working on it, though nothing as of yet).

Has anyone else thought of this, done it or see a problem w/ removing the hood? I have thought about if you can cut it off in one piece that there may be a chance to re-attach it later. The space in between the lens and the hood at it most retracted position makes this option virtually impossible by my inspection.

Thoughts and comments are welcome...
