Basic question.. I have seen people, especially Karl Taylor using what looks like Cokin square filters, but wanted to confirm that the adaptor system can be used wiht my 70-200 77mm lens?

I could get round filters, but i like the apparent versatility of a square set.. thoughts?

Thank you!

There are two types of the cokin filters, one is too small for a 77mm lens. I cant remember the letter designations. What filters are you thinking of getting? Square is good for graduated ND filters, fine for landscape work. Perhaps a bit awkward for some other purposes.

I'd stick with round for the CPL personally.

I think the Cokin P-series adapter will fit a 77mm filter. Cokin has a round CPL that fits in the first slot of the holder.

The Cokin P will just fit a 77 mm threaded lens, but you may experience vignetting with wide angle lenses that are at that 77 mm limit. The filters are 84-85 mm. Better, if you have or expect to have a lens that takes 77 mm filters to get the 4"/100 mm holders from Lee (or Cokin's Z-Pro) and use the larger filters.

I use the P series with my 77mm lenses ... but if the focal length is less than 25mm or so, you have vignetting (or at least the possibility).

After reading more and questioning which filter I see that, for example, Karl Taylor uses lee filters and I've read mixed reviews of Cokins. However, would they be good filters to start with and if I happen to get that Great Wall worthy shot will it still produce good enough results and can't the vignetting be removed in LR?

Also I'd be using my 17-50 2.8

Vignetting will be less of an issue with a crop body, but if you go full frame it becomes huge on the ultrawide lenses.

Thanks Gonzo, so, would the Cokin be good filters to start with and if I happen to get that Great Wall worthy shot will it still produce good enough results. I mean ebay has a set, with filter adaptor and one Split ND filter for 8.99... seems worth a shot.

For $9 bucks it might be worth a shot. I just reread one post and I think we should make something clear. When you talk about filters vignetting its not just darker to the edge like you get with a zoom. Its the mount of the filter system sticking into the camera's view. The only fix for that is a crop.

So im seeing a lot of different circular CPL filters from Cokin. Do I need to be looking for a certain one that it will fit into the holder?

Thanks

They should be listed as fitting a particular series, identified by letter.
