Summary: Using a full frame camera with a 24-105mm lens at its widest focal length (24mm) the filter holder encroaches slightly into view other wise it would be a 5. This kit actually comes with a case and the individual filter pouches are very good.
Summary: I did get the results that I had hoped for with this product, but was left wishing that I had waited until I could afford a better quality filter system.I found that the filters would slip within the filter holder, not a great amount, but sufficient to require re adjustment. Also, the way in which the adaptor ring fits into the filter holder could be of better design.
Summary: I found the Cokin Z pro kit very disappointing. I have submitted a review before, but I guess it wasn't published as it was out of stock at the time I wrote the review.I upgraded my "P" kit as I now have both FX and DX Nikon cameras, but all my lenses are 35mm, so suitable for both. I couldn't afford the Lee system.
Pros: Easy To Use, Firm Mount, Strong Construction
Summary: The kit consists of 3 robust graduated ND filters each protected in well made fabric wallets, a mount and a carrying case. The case has space for additional filters, which is a bonus. The Wex service was superb. I ordered on-line in the early evening and the product was with me by mid-morning the following day - fantastic!
Pros: Clear Optics, Easy To Use, Firm Mount, Strong Construction
Summary: I use this kit everytime I have a bright sky in the viewfinder. It makes all the colours seem so much more vivid.It is quite a big piece of kit to add to the front of the camera & it's a pain that Cokin don't make a lens protector to add to the front (like in the smaller sizes), but it works great with my 18-200 Nikon lens, unlike the smaller kits. I also need to buy a bigger camera bag to put it all in!
Summary: I use the kit for landscape and architectural subjects to maintain detail in the sky while exposing correctly for the foreground.Cheaper than the Lee kit but still lives up to professional label.Filters come well protected in substantial soft pouches.However, I don't like the fact that the filter holding screws could quite easliy be lost - there should be a safety device to stop them unscrewing right out and being lost.
Pros: Easy To Use, Firm Mount, Light but strong enough
Summary: a solidly constructed bit of kit. the size of it means its a definate decision to take it with you, of course it is this size for a reason, to avoid dark corners etc. The carry bag that comes with it is great, the inner sheafs to house the items tend to leave fluff and fibres on the lens'
Pros: Clear Optics, Firm Mount, Strong Construction
Summary: It's an excellent value for the money - you get adjustable filter holder, 3 different high quality graduated ND filters with a pouch for each of them and a quality filter bag that you can put in it lots of other filters and accessories. The bag is easy to carry guarantees protection of all of your items.
