best behaviour today! Since some of us are meeting up tomorrow, we should take a break from all this poisoning...
somehow that's not gonna happen I reckon...
yeah I reckon the material cost should not be significant. The hard-anodizing process can be much cheaper if quantity is larger, since cost is shared by all the parts going through at one go.
The problem is trying to get a standardized design though, since there's a variety of camera models and configurations (batt grip n without). We discuss this further over brekkie tomorrow...

cannot... coz the holder for the Nikkor 14-24 is for 150mm square filters... Cokin holder only have 85 and 100mm as far as I know...
if by adapter ring, you're referring to the threaded ring to screw onto the end of the lens... well, the 14-24 has no screw thread
That what makes it a pain in the a$$ to have.
The holder has to clamp onto the outer shell of the lens, whilst being precise enough that people cannot mount it senget...
Actually it's probably not that difficult, but Lee were probably doing their cost-benefit-profit analysis.
Seeing as the market for 14-24 isn't like super huge... prices are likely to be significant...
He PM me and physco me to buy
Actually i have a few friends who have it.. and some who have the Arca Swiss Z1..
try both, each has its own positives.. Arca impressed me with their apsherical ball while RRS impressed me with their sleek, classy design with improved ergonomics and solid ballhead.. Both are beri ideal for panning..
So now, still contemplating which one to get for long term macro/landscape work.. decisions decisions decisions
You know the difference in raw material price between aluminium and titanium?
but I think the major difference in price is that aluminium L brackets (the base structure from which to fabricate the L plate) can be found quite readily in Singapore, but not titanium.
interesting write-up AGAINST the L-plate...
