1. I like the metal ring that's inbuilt into the err... ring filters.
2. size matters. The small box I keep my filter in looks pretty hardy, and any weight, I suspect would go onto the metal ring before actually pushed onto the glass.
3. I feel comfortable holding the edges of the metal ring. I'm not sure how I would handle a square filter.
What about squarish Tupperware of the appropriate size? I think they are pretty durable...but don't know if it will sustain body weight? Or tupperware within a tupperware - double the strength.
[SIC B+W HK] - found this website online, quite cheap thus wanted to check if anyone tried order from here ? its about $119 only

pardon my stupid question, my current lens are 35mm f1.8 , 18-105mm f3.5 -5.6 and tokina 11-16mm f2.8 and tamron 17-50mm f2.8
how do i know whether my existing lens can fit onto B+W ND110 77mm Filter
A step-up ring to fit each lens should be all that you need to have the ND110 77mm filter (except those already at 77mm) fitted.
May i know if this is the B+W ND110 you guys have been talking about? Perhaps you could purchase it from BH photo.
Spend so much to get the filters and yet think that they are as fragile as ice cream cone waffles. Then the best place is in the dry cabi...
B + W filters, if not mounted on lenses, just carry in the plastic box that they come in. Unless you are doing a parachute jump with camera and stuff.
The same goes for Tian Ya, they come in a box. Not sure about Lee and Cokin.
Filters are not ice cream cones waffles.
If still afraid of breaking the waffles, you can try this http://www.pelicancase.com/small-pel...ases.html#1120. For best results, house the waffles in a pelican, in another pelican. But that the pelicans will probably cost more than the waffles. FYI, these cases are waterproof, airproof , fireproof and crush proof, for the paranoid
I'm planning to get Lee's Stopper - since it is glass and worth at least a starter's lens, it's wise to find proper protection for it. Just as we should not stinge on proper tripods. Otherwise, we might as well, like you've suggested - eat it like waffles when things do go wrong (Murphy's Law) I'm just hopping the Stopper would come with proper plastic casing.
The rest would ultimately be Hitech resins - I think those do not come with any protection - correct me if I'm wrong please, I haven't started the collection yet...
