Pimp my Lumix 7-14!

Those who own the Lumix 7-14mm super wide angle zoom lens might have had that thought: “If only I could attach a polarizer filter to this lens!” Well, you obviously can’t, for three reasons:

  1. The front lens element protrudes too far outside the lens barrel,
  2. the lens hood is fixed and
  3. it doesn’t have a filter thread.

So what to do if you desperately do want/need to use a filter with this lens? Build an attachable filter adapter that fits on the hood yourself, like this guy at the dpreview Micro Four Thirds Talk forum did!

Buy the Panasonic Lumix G Vario 7-14mm f/4 lens from B&H Photo Video Audio!
