    Bronica 40mm PE Lens - Does it vignette with standard filters

    Does anyone know if a single standard filter like the B&W non-slim range will cause vignetting on the Bronica 40mm PE lens (62mm thread) ? In other words, do I need to use the more expensive slim filters with this lens?

    I've searched APUG but not found an answer.

    Thanks,
    Andrew

    I've never seen any on my images.
    I just checked mine anyway by mounting a standard filter and looking at the corners on the ground glass with the lens stopped all the way down, then with it wide open and saw no evidence of vignetting. I then looked through the camera from the corners of the film plane with the lens open (of course) and saw no difference with the filter on or off. I next tried with two standard filters stacked and saw nothing on the ground glass, but looking through from the corners of the film plane could see a bit of the second filter.
    I think even a screw-in polarizer would still be thin enough.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    I have the MC version and never experienced it. I use the 40mm more than any of my others as it is a very good lens.
