I just got this lens for a song here on the forum, THANKS DABO!! and I already had a 77mm uv lens on my sigma 70-200 so I tried that one as I was wondering if it would vinette and I noticed the glass on the lens when you zoom moves in and out. I put a peice of paper inside the lens-filter to see if it would actually touch and IT DOES!

I would warn everyone with this lens to be very carefull what filters you use on this lens. its when you zoom all the way to 24mm that the lens sticks out the most.

Thanks. I just bought this one and was thinking about which filters to put on it. If you find something that works well, please let me know.

I got the ultra thin B&W CP filter for this lens. Works well! No vignetting. Comes with it's own lens cap.

what I do want is to be able to put a lens cap on with the filter still in place. so that rules out the filters with no front threads.

I'm using an Hoya Super HMC Pro-1 on the Tokina 12-24. No glass contact, no vignetting, and takes a Nikon center pinch cap nicely.

Well that's rather irritating. One would think a Hoya filter would fit a Tokina lens without issues as Tokina owns Hoya!

Here's contact info for THK, Inc., the U.S. distributor for Tokina Co.:

Hopefully, they can offer some insight here.

The Nikon CPL is semi-thin but still has enough front thread to use a normal lens cap. This CPL works quite well with the Tokina 12-24 in my experience.
