    Why don't you do a search yourself? There are already lots of comments on them. I did a search earlier and got my answer.

    i am using tianya-filters (colour, ND and grad filters). there is a purplish tinge if you stack up 2 grad grey filters so this need to be corrected accordingly during pp. so far so good, no major problem with it. heard bad reviews on their CPL so decided not to try that.

    that's right, CP is always out of stock. you can still get it from OP if you are willing to fork up more for the same stuff.

    You can get Lee filters locally from CP but be prepared to pay the premium... for example, any GND filter will cost you $160-170 per piece

    Taking examples from Robert White in UK and B+H in US, they cost around 130 - 150 SGD respectively, excluding shipping charges.

    I have heard from a fellow CSer that Lee GND filters can be bought at around 110-120 SGD in Taiwan.
