I guess I can answer my own question if anyone is interested. I bought it and yes it works great.
It clears the mic just fine. Adding filters you have to wither use the rotating and spin it 180 deg. or take the box off to add a filter. No biggie. Pretty god matte box for the coin.

Hi,

Anyway, it's not a case of it covering 16:9, it's a case of it covering the lens you want to use. I know those matteboxes well and they won't cover big wide angle broadcast zooms in any aspect ratio.
