Unfortunately, plummeting money markets means that 310 will cost me a bit more than it would have a month ago when this crap started!!!!

(That's me!)
Ouch !!! surely the AUD will start recovering some of that lost ground soon since the Oz economy got a good rap recently and we seem to be doing OK cf everyone else.

One downside - a 72mm filter collects dew quickly!!!
Hi Doug, I know this is an older thread but I'm keen to know whether the hood that comes with the canon 70-200 f/4 lens will still fit around the 67-72mm step up ring to minimise dew on the lps 72mm filter you purchased in the end. Im looking to use the same lens set up with a hutech 40D and your original post on the problems you had with the lps front filter system is most valuable - thanks.

Cheers Steve
