^ order the parts at adorama, they'll place your order today so you're "in line" but won't bill you until you have them. The other option is 2filter.com, but they generally have the same stocking issues as the big guys (and get less per shipment).

Anybody know where I can find these items in stock.....the CPL, foundation kit and filters!
B&H and Adorama are back ordered with no shipping date for availability.
I may have to suck it up and pay enormously high prices in Canada for these as it sits right now and I want them for August when I go on vacation.

Try Unique Photo in New Jersey. They didn't have the foundation kit in stock, but they do have most all the rest of the filters in stock. I had good luck in completing my kit from them.

I just thought I should tell you that I checked there and they do have the CPL but......I am scared to do it because I am in Canada and fear I will get majorly dinged at the border LOL. I will have to see what I can find out about what it would cost me lol!
Update.....LOL I am so impatient. I went ahead and ordered the CPL from Unique Photo anyways. I hope what I found out is right because according to three sites I looked at The filter should be duty free! Now brokers fees could be another thing and I guess I will find out.
MGW172.....Do you remember how long it took for you to receive your order from them?
There now I am officially BROKE!!! Dam CPL cost me 201.90

It was less than a week, ordered on a Sunday night and I think I had them by Wednesday. And yeah, by the time you buy all these filters, it does drain your bank account.

You do need 3 "pieces", a filter, a filter holder, and the adapter ring to clip the filter holder onto the front of your lens.

You actually only really need the filter itself. For shorter exposures, I hold the filter right up to the front of the lens. I shoot mainly wide-angle and I've found the holder tends to show up in my images around the edges. You can kind of see in the picture below how I hold the filter.

Aren't you worried about scratching the resin? Have you and just don't find the scratches relevent enough to care?

Well that is what happens to us poor Canadians.....we have to pay through the nose for our gear. Actually B&H's price is $79.95 so when you add shipping
it is not that far off the mark. I would have ordered from B&H if they had any. Since they are hard to find just like the filters and kit I am happy to get one even if I had to pay more. You gotta pay if ya wanna play....LOL!! AND....
I can't wait to play!!:D

No, I haven't scratched them. I'm pretty anal with my gear. I'd rather worry about scratching the filter than have to deal with the holder in the shot or vignetting. Speaking of that, I have the Cokin Z filter holder and the Coking P filter holder I'd be willing to sell if anyone is looking for them. The Z holds standard 4x4 and 4x6 filters.

Ahhh....that's why your filter holder gets in the way. I don't believe the Lee kit has any problems with vignetting.

They all say there's no vignetting but put them on a full frame at 17mm and you'll see what I'm talking about...
