Hi folks,

 

I have always used Cokin and Hoya filters until now, but I am considering moving to the Lee system. I do however find their brochure a bit confusing as to what I actually need to get and do not have a retailer I can visit who stocks them.

 

Can anyone advise what I actually need to get to start out. I will mainly be using grads for landscapes, possibly a stopper but not sure which. I am lucky in that all my lenses have 77mm filter threads and I have coverage from 12mm - 300mm on a DX body.

 

As they are very very expensive, I don't want to get it wrong.

 

I have already tried the UK based SRB filters in 80mm and they were horrible, creating colour castes that were uncontrolled and uncorrectable (especially with their 10stop ND). I invested in the this system and binned it, so I really need some sensible advice. 

 

Thank you.
