WHOA!!!! I just had a look at Lee filters' prices on B&H's website. Expensive puts it mildly. I will stick with Cokin.

I bought my Cokin Z-pro kit with holder and 3 GND for 60, that's indeed great value
But I still want some other filters and they are going to be Hi-tech, here take a look link

I looked at the website, and the company Formatt is familiar to any graphic designer that has been in the business over 25 years. The only thing to change is the move towards more photographic materials than to items like type and screens. Their products were expensive then for the product quality, and some things I see do not change with time.

I think I said it, they are expensive by the prices I have looked up locally, compared to the quality of product delivered.

One last thing, the second part of my screen name is monk which indicates a religious state or vocation, rather than munk which is associated with a rodent. I appreciate the proper spelling.

yes and this Isn't my first time I did that Photomonk *sighs relief* got it.

My apologies for not spelling your username right, it's a number of factors that makes it simply hard for me to spell it right and for the rest there is truly nothing behind it. I can understand it that you find it annoying but I did it not on purpose, I'm very annoyed about it myself that I did it.

I'm however afraid that this is going to be a re-returning problem how well I will do my best, I hear an U and I write it down and I don't see the mistake when someone points it to me, dyslexia and a foreign language, I'm already happy that I can do it this good.
I hope you understand my problem as I do yours in this matter.

I've added the correct name in the spellings checker, I hope that that help or else I hope we can find another way maybe use the Dutch spelling. I know it isn't correct but at least I ain't offending you. But lets see and wait if the spellingschecker does the trick Photomonk or else just hit me every time I say it wrong, we will get it in me the hard way

ps. triple checked if I didn't spell your name wrong

Be very sure that you actually need a circular polariser before spending the money. Linear polarisers work perfectly well on the K10D, despite all the received wisdom suggesting that AF and/or exposure issues will result.

If you're on a budget, it's worth checking if this is also true for the KM - LPs are much cheaper than CPs.

You are the expert ! GND it is then .. I'll start looking out for it..

Anything particular that I should look out for while buying them ?

You can save some money by purchasing the Cokin filter holders and adaptors from e-bay stores. They are not original Cokin, but do the job just as well.

I have the original Cokin wide-angle holder, plus a third party standard holder and rings; both do the same job, with the third party being about half the price.
