A cheaper option would hitech 4x5. I use a 1.2 soft edge (external link) on my 10-22 (which = 16mm on a 5D) I love that filter and couldn't do without it.

I started w/ the Cokin Z-Pro holder, but it really is a POS, not high quality at all and vignettes unless you remove all but one of the filter sliders. I took the adapter ring (external link) and some velcro and made it better.

I put velcro on the filter and the adapter ring so all I have to do is slap the filter on and I'm ready to go. Works great and much faster than fiddling w/ the holder in the field. Here's some pics of the rig and some examples shot w/ the velcro setup.

I have Lee ND soft grad set of 3 filters and they are wonderful, and the holders are far more robust than the Cokin. And I have quite a collection of Cokin, I really liked them, but they will all be going.

Clever, but it seems that it would be a real PITA to adjust the filter. When I am not using a holder or hood, I find that is much easier and quicker to simply hand-hold.
