Ikelite Releases Anti-Reflection Ring for Sony FE 16-35mm f/4 PZ Lens
By Ian Bongso-Seldrup, November 5, 2023 @ 07:30 AM (EST)

With the holiday season nearly upon us, you might be wondering what to buy your underwater photography obsessed friends that doesn’t involve parting with gigantic sums of money. Well, how does 10 bucks sound?

It just so happens that when one puts a lens behind a dome port underwater, it’s possible that reflections of the little white lettering on the front of the lens could end up on one’s images. The solution—for a mere $10—is a precisely engineered self-adhesive vinyl label from Ikelite that neatly covers the white lettering.

Ikelite produces a huge range of these ingenious “anti-reflection rings” for a huge range of lenses, the latest being the Sony FE 16–35mm f/4 PZ wide-angle lens with power zoom. These anti-reflection rings can be purchased from Ikelite directly or retailers such as Backscatter.

Imagine: No more epic wide-angle images spoiled by unsightly reflections. That’s priceless!
