I found this (external link)on Amazon. It's a century precision filter holder that looks just like the Lee filter holder. It's more expensive the the Lee filter holder but it's available. Are they the same? Is century precision a good filter holder to use? Are they compatible with the Lee filters?

These roll out of the same factory. There have been recent threads of Century products being shipped in Lee packaging :)

I was reading the century description and it says it rotates for polarizers? Does the lee holder rotate also?

Yes, it does. Any good "square" holder with a lens adapter ring will let you rotate the holder about the ring.

so I guess the only think I have to decide is to buy the century and get it next week plus spending $40 more or wait for the lee to come in and save the $40?

Supply and demand...Lees are (have been) difficult to get for quite some time. Just depends on how bad you want/need it...

i opted to spend the money and bite the bullet on amazon yesterday. i figure the price of the filter holder and the adapter is only a $40 difference. i'm in need of it now and willing to wait around for bh or adorama.

Does it include the standard 77mm or WA 77mm adapter ring? I would need a WA.

After some more research I found out that the Precision Holder is designed more for Motion Pictures. It has two slots and thumb screws to hold heavier 4mm filters used w/motion picture/TV shooting.
