You could...a 4-inch filter is a 4-inch filter (or 100mm for the metric folks). Just be sure to use the proper Hitech adapter rings...

I am not sure that the Lee filters will fit into the Hitech holder. The Hitech's are thinner. I am not at home and cannot verify, but my guess is no.

The OP didn't make it clear that he actually has Lee filters...he just stated that he's looking for a Lee holder.

Anyway, IIRC, the Hitech filters are about 0.5mm thinner than a Lee filter. They may be a hair snug, but I don't think that its too big of a deal (which is why I didn't mention it in my first post). Better to be a hair snug than a hair loose...

If you need a third choice I know that both Lee and Hitech filters will fit in a Cokin Z holder.

I would just hold out and order the lee holder or post wtb on this forum or fm forum. I found mine in about two weeks; you would be surprised how often they pop up for sale.

My Lees are too snug in the Hitech holder. I suppose if I were to force them they might go in, but I am really hesitant to do that.

I have a cokin z pro. and although I have yet to purchase any filters for it, i can vouch that it is very well made and functional. Never used the lee, but I didnt have a problem getting a holder and 77mm adapter from the potn classifieds. just posted an ad in the buy section.
