    A is for amatuer and P is for Pro... But it's just their way of naming them.

    P has bigger filter holder than A. Reason being most pro lens have bigger filter size.

    comparatively, they're cheaper. especially if you have a variety of thread sizes to contend with.

    are they good? depends what you're looking for. they're extremely flexible, esp for graduated filters as you can control the horizon.. but not so as protection for your lenses, or if you use wide angles often (signs of vignetting are very apparent).

    enjoy!

    of course. go to CP, there's a whole wall filled with Cokin filters. also, just a comment i find Cokin-type filters are more flexible and also a lot more variety (esp for effects) than the regular circular screw-on type filter. i got a whole range of them in a wallet...

    also, Cokin is a lot cheaper than Lee filters, which works fine for me since i only use the filters some of the time and i don't wanna fork out a bomb for them.

    I visited CP today to look at the filters. There's like an all in one pack which costs I think $160.
