    Does anyone know if there might be vignetting issues with a Hasselblad 80mm CF + bay 60 polarizer + compendium - specifically the 40676 - metal style with folding rail.

    I am in the process of acquiring the 80CF and am trying to decide if I need to go with a larger filter size or not. The only other option would be for a bay 70 filter, but I don't see those available used.

    Thanks all.

    No problem.

    No need for larger filters. They only make it difficult to mount things like the compendium.

    The shade has markings on the rail showing how far to extend it for any given lens. Don't extend beyond them or use the long lens insert and your OK.
