Ultra thin UV-Filter

Hi: Looking for an u l t r a t h i n 95mm UV- or clear-filter designed to avoid vignetting - and at a considerable price as I am still washing dishes.
Anybody has a hot hint?
Thanx!

Tough call, B+W have ultrathins but they cost.

Cheers.

Schneider makes thin filters but they usually cost $100+

Sorry. No free lunch here either. If you tell us the camera you want to use it on, perhaps someone can recommend a not-so-thin and not-so-expensive filter that will work without vignetting.

Hi:
Wanna use that filter on the FUJINON wide-angle XS8X4AS-XB8 of my Sony EX3.

Why add a UV filter? The lens itself will absorb all the UV light you throw at it.
Mechanical protection? You're going to be filming sail-boarders on wind-swept, sandy beaches? OK, fit a filter.

Or you're shooting weddings on sun-lit, gentle lawns? Forget the filter, they cause more trouble than they're worth, and the smaller the chips (= the shorter the focal length) the bigger the problems you'll face, especially into the light.

Step-up ring + normal filter

Consider getting a 95 to 105 step-up ring. Then just get a regular 105 filter. Should save you some money.
