I justbought a new 17-40L and a Tiffen "thin" UV filter. Ihoped to complete the dust sealby adding the filter to a lensthat hasa nice rubber body sealing ring.I was surprised to see the lens capwill notgo on over the filter. The cap apparently needs a thicker filter ring toseat properly. Anyone have any good filter options after I return the Tiffen? Will the cap go on properly over a Canon filter?
