    The Cokin set you can get it at Orient Photo, Sim Lim, 6th floor. For Tian Ya (uses the same size, filters can be interchanged) you can check for Eugenep here in CS. He has a mass order for holder, adapter ring and many filters. Cheaper than Cokin but Tian Ya's selection is limited. Read up about the usage and the filter system, don't buy if you don't know what you need.

    Check price at Orient Photo and Cathay Photo (cathay is actually distributor for Cokin but after waiting patiently for some 5 years I finally bought my ND Grad filter at Oritent Photo cos Cathay photo always run out of stock when I ask them - for ND grad filter).

    I have no experience with TianYa as it was not available yet when I started using filters.

    TianYa and Cokin actually has same size esp for standard model for DSLR, so see if you are OK with the bracket quality of TianYa and get that. Make sure you get the bracket that can at least accomodate 3 filters, and large enough for the largest lense you have, keep in mind for future expansion. Once you get a bracket of choice then you choose filters.

    Dont buy a package. Pick and choose your own filter. On top of that I always have a UV filter either B+W (for my expensive lenses) or Hoya (for cheaper lenses).

    If you are really into heavy use of filters try Lee but dont get shocked about the price. One of my friend uses that, bought from Cathay Photo. It is bigger than Cokin.

    hmmm.. I've looked through the tianya equipment thread. Do you guys have any idea of the colour quality of tianya? The price is quite affordable but don't wish the colour to run off just by saving those bucks. =]

    Dude... I've used Tian Ya for almost 2 years now... It colors hasn't "ran off" yet, and I don't expect it to for a long time... Tian Ya may be of lower quality compared to the other filter manufacturers, but give it some credit yeah!

    Why not go check both shop? One is Sim Lim another at Peninsula Plaza. They are not that far away... What if someone give you wrong info and you end up buying more expensively?
