Cool. Yeah, 14mm is pretty wide. Actually at 14mm there's so much light coming in not just straight on but from decent angles off to the side. And because the stuff coming in from the side actually has a lot more glass to travel through, due to coming in at an angle, it can make it "darker" than the rest for that reason alone.

Going from 6 to 9 stops sounds like what you might want. 6 is already actually a lot, 9 might get you where you want especially for daytime. Just have to try it out.
