- Lee Filters offer the dedicated adapter ring TS-E 17mm f4 to mount their 100mm system holder, which will still allow for approx. half of all movements' max. totals without vignetting.
- Haida offers the dedicated HD3103 Full Metal 150 Filter Holder set. It takes up to two filters of 150x100mm. Using 2 filters will result in vignetting at ±6.5° shift and ±12mm tilt, otherwise not.
