7) Lee pouches for holder and filter. The bottom one has a business card showing that the set up came from Leefiltersusa.com in Hollywood, CA.

15) Lastly, I took the photo this way to show that I don't need to purchase a straight ND since I could fill the entire lens with the dark part of the filter...

Lee Filter System

PROs:

You can rotate the holder.
You can unstack the slide compartments.
You can use more than one filter.
The 4x6 filter allows easier manuvering for composition and better handling.
Love the fact that I don't have to get a very expensive straight ND filter (that is, if my idea as shown on photo #15 works).
Looks cool. Doesn't look or feel as ackward as I had anticipated.

CONs:

The ring itself probably costed the manufacturer less than $2 to make. Charging the customers at nearly $60 for this little piece is a crime, I'd say.

The same goes for the holder. I'll just pretend that the golden screws are made of real gold just to make me feel better that I was stupid enough to go with the Lee holder and ring at those outrageously rip-off prices. Lee filters are probably another matter, though.

There are rings for different size lenses. I got the ring for 77mm because several of my lenses are of the same size. Whether there are adapters for the ring adapter, I do not know. Perhaps some other forum members know about this. I'm primarily planning on using the filter set up on my 10-22 so I didn't look into that issue.
