OK, first off, to see what size filter you need, cut three pieces of paper to the spec'd sizes on B&Hs site for Ps, Zs and Xs. For the siggy 12-24 you NEED Xs at 12mm. I know Zs are cheaper, and I've switched back to standard threaded lenses because of that and availability (ie more than just cokins).

As for what size threaded ring you need, it's a guessing game really. You need to measure the outside of the lens and go from there. If it's 95mm threads on a ring the inside diameter of that will be less than that, but I'm not sure by how much. I got lucky when I ordered mine and guessed right the first time.

First your pics could grace any magazine cover.

Second, thank you for the obvious effort this required.

Hey Ben, what's the story on these blended filters? At they just graduated the whole length?

Plus sides? I'd think that in most cases you just want to darken he sky right?

just think of it as a suuuuuuuupeeeeeeeeeer soft transition. ;)

Yes, it's nothing on one end and dark on the other and it's a transition for 6"...

So I've been trying to track down 3 stop hard stop GND for lee kit and its really hard to get...
I see for GND, both lee and singh-ray only makes Resin and not glass?
I'm bit concerned about resin being able to warp bit....

don't worry about the resin. Mine have been fine for a year and I know people who've had them longer. I've had my cokins and hitechs (resin) for 2~3 years now. Drop resin and it might just scratch or chip but not break. Drop glass and you're SOL.

Only thing I've heard about resins is if they get scratched up it can introduce flare which makes sense. As long as your careful with them and store them in a protective filter pouch of some sort it shouldn't be an issue.

yeah, I agree with that, but I've also shattered a glass CP which is also a bummer where I've bounced a few GNDs off the ground and only chipped corners. I will say my hitechs got scratched REALLY quickly where my Lees don't have any yet... *knocks wood* I'm not sure if it's how I'm using them (better holder, better pouch/sleeves, more careful) or if it's the resin itself.

Just got my foundation kit. Woo.

Does anyone make a good 6 stop 4x4?

I'm planning on getting hitech 3 stop hard, 2 stop soft and a 4x4 circular polarizer

edit: nvm, big stopper is just as economical.

I own two Lee 3 stop glass NDs just so I can stack it for six stops.
