Hi, can anyone advise on which of the above to get if I were to use the filters with my Canon 10-22mm? Thanks.
Here can get the answer to your question
The P series should be sufficient.
Minolta. Konica Minolta. Sony
P series enough.. =)
If your budget is higher can consider Lee filters, a lot more expensive though.
Cokin P series is 80+mm. As for Singh-ray, I have no idea, my budget is very limited so I have never done research on it, please wait for others who are in the know to reply to you on this, hehe!
If your budget is on the other end of the scale, i.e. low.. Then you can follow what me and a few other people do, buy Tianya from PPCP, it is compatible with Cokin P series holder, I've been fooling around with their Graduated Red, it's quite decent for the price.
The slim Cokin P holder vignette when u shot at wider ends, esp at 10mm end
If can try to get the Z-pro, but do note the price will go up as well
I use my P filter handheld against the lens w/o the holder
Singh Ray comes in diff sizes, has a P size , you can check their site.
It depends on what body you are using the lens with.
Are you using film body with 1:1 or a digital body with 1:1.5, 1:1.2 crop???
There is a high chance of a Cokin P filter holder causing vignetting, even if its a slim holder, at the 10mm end.
The factors determining are:
1) What crop factor are you shooting at.
2) How "wide" is your filter holder (and of course your filter).
The brand of the filter has NOTHING to do with vignetting. It affects the size of the hole in your pocket though.

I think like that Cokin P sure vignette.
Use either Lee filter or Cokin Z-Pro. BUT, Lee filters darn expensive, and Cokin Z-Pro not available in Singapore. Both use 100mm filters though.
Alternative is the Cokin X-Pro which is darn huge, sure no vignette. BUT, also darn expensive.
Oops. Din check back on this thread. Anyway, as requested, here are some samples of the Cokin P-series slim filter holder on a 10-22 @ 10mm WITHOUT any UV filter.
I think my holder wasn't perfectly straight, thus the unbalanced amount of vignetting. Overall it isn't that bad. Nothing a little bit of cropping or clone stamp tool won't fix.
Vertical alignment (holder rotated 90 degrees):
Completely cannot make it.
