Filters, step-up rings, adapter rings, holders… It is easy to become confused with the number of filter solutions and manufacturers on the market, but we have created an easy reference guide below. Currently there is not a go-to solution that fits all of the lenses available, but this guide will help you learn your options. We currently recommend the LEE 4″, LEE SW150, and the Vü VFH-100mm for Phase One / Mamiya Leaf and Schneider lenses.

With this guide below you now know what filter thread each of your tech camera lenses are. Want to use a filter with a center filter on your lens? No problem, we’ve listed the filter thread for those center filters and what systems will work with that filter thread.

Which solution is right for you?

The Lee 4″ filter system will fit the majority of the filter threads in the Phase One / Mamiya Leaf / Schneider lines, with the exception of the larger zoom lenses like the 40-80mm LS or 75-150mm LS. LEE has developed a new SW150 System Adapter which will allow the SW150 holder to be attached to many other types of lenses. For example you can now attach a 105mm adapter ring to the SW150 Mark II Filter Holder to fit your 35mm LS or 40-80mm LS. Please note that the LEE 4″ filters will not fit the SW150 system. The size of the filters for the SW150 system is 150×170.

The Vü VFH-100mm system covers filter threads from 49mm to 82mm.

The Cokin X-Pro Filter System has the adapter rings for all but two focal plane and shutter lenses (in the medium format line up). The X-Pro is a great solution for the larger lenses with a 95mm. We recommend the 1.00mm pitch thread adapter rings for the Phase One / Mamiya Leaf / Schneider lines. Note: The one caveat to the Cokin solution is that the filter size is 130mm x 170mm. So the Lee filters you might already own will NOT fit the Cokin X-Pro Filter Holder.filters_tech_productbanner_01
