Landscape photographers swear by the Nikon 14-24mm f2.8 like followers of a cult–and so today’s announcement by Fotodiox can only be expected in some ways. The company is announcing the WonderPana FreeArc–which is a holder for filter glass that also allows the glass to spin around the front of the lens. According to the press release, “Its all-metal core attaches directly onto a lens with a secure two-piece mount. With the core in place, photographers can mount any of Fotodiox’s new 145mm Slimline Filters.” That’s right, there are also new filters that are designed to be slimmer for use–and we hope that also means that the durability didn’t go down.
The WonderPana FreeArc can accommodate a combination of two Graduated ND rectangular filters or one round and one Graduated ND rectangular filter, simultaneously.
You can get your very own FreeArc for $275 on their website, and its corresponding Essentials Kit, complete with the core, cap, CPL filter and graduated ND filter, is available for $490.46. Fotodiox’s Slimline Filters range from $79.95 to $129.95
