    Default Would you buy Lee filter if someone MO and is cheaper by 20%?

    Hi, someone asked this and I thought an interesting question: how come no one MO Lee Filter?

    Let's give potential MOers a head start. If the MO managed to get 20% cheaper for Lee filters, would you be willing to buy?

    If the response is good, I may start another poll: what are the items you might buy (e.g. adaptor ring, foundation kit, actual filters, etc.).

    Henessy, want to bring in Lee?

    How much are they normally selling for there?

    these are some prices I asked Cathay late last week:
    adaptor ring = $100 or $99 depending on who you approach
    foundation kit (aka filter holder) = $130 [can hold up to 3 filters, can remove layers for UWA]
    individual GND filters (regardless of hard or soft, # stops) = S$163 (someone quoted me S$200, depends on who you approach)
    GND filter kits (pack of 3) = $400 (1 stop, 2 stop and 3 stop) (hard or soft).
    all filters are 100mm by 150mm for GND for obvious reasons.

    ... to give an idea.


    Singh Ray is worse:
    P size filters (84mm)
    GND (1 to 3 stop, hard or soft) = US$99
    Reverse GND (1-3 stops) = US$120

    Zpro size (100mm)
    GND (1 to 3 stop, hard or soft) = US$160
    Reverse GND (1-3 stops) = US$190

    i'm assuming you are asking about the difference between lee and singh ray. so far, i have not come across someone who has tried both.

    If it is cheaper, and no rip off, why not?

    although the 20% is really tempting for ppl who use GND alot, but the overrall price is still abit for non-working adult like me considering one will usually order a few pieces, and those can sum up really .

    Hi all, appreciate your viewing, questions and comments. But can you please vote on the poll instead of just replying? This will give potential MOers an idea of potential business and hopefully, someone can really MO Lee filter and give us good discounts.

    thanks in advance.
    (totally understand the part on out of reach for non working adults. a set can easily buy you a good prime lens.)

    50mm f/1.8 goes for about $120. Is that still a reasonable ratio here? Two pieces of plastic are more expensive than an optical precision instrument?

    Hi, I just double checked on robertwhite.co.uk site. with shipping cost in, the price is almost equal to CP prices (almost uncanny).

    so, please... someone please find a good dealer to MO...

    it is mainly because the person doing the MO needs to post in the MO forum
    please do not do market research in General, Reviews, Tech Talk

    it is neither
