  • Oly 12-40 PRO lens/Lee Seven5 Polariser flare issue and solution

    If you own the Olympus 12-40 Pro lens and use this with the Lee Seven5 Filter System, you, may have discovered that you can encounter reflections when using the Circular Polarising filter mounted on the front of the filter holder (see image 1).

    This is caused by light reaching the lens front element in the gap where the grad filters go (see image 2).

    I have a solution however. A simple strip of velcro tie (see image 3).

    Simply cut a length of this long enough to warp around the filter holder and slip into place when using the polarising filter (see pic 4). Simple and job done!

    If you hadn't noticed this light reflection when using the polarising filter, do be aware of the issue.
