    Don't think it 100mm as i tried in vain to look for a thirdparty one - so finally did a customize 100mm order from SGCAMERASTORE for the ir filter for my 14-24 which cost me abt 90 dollar for 1 pcs- The $65 is only the Tianya type filters

    I think many is confuse abt the 100mm holder and the normal p Cokin system holder - there also the 150mm holder , the third party are generic cheaper but once the 100mm up cost will be above 100 up just for the holder , unless there greater demand I guess china third Party price will drop . Those in the market that mass seller are selling are the Tia ya filter which is not 100mm sizes from what I know. Only lee and hi tech are the only ones in the market . For holders there already third party got one from sgcamerastore which are the 100mm and 150mm holder - will upload the holders of the 100mm for those who Have not see what it looks like

    it is a bit confusing, even myself I got some difficulty knowing which sq filter to buy for 11-16 Tokina. Perhaps someone can show us a link in ebay on the suitable filter set.

    easy, if you have an ultra-wide lens go for the 100mm variants. Cokin P filters (85mm) will have dark corners on your widest focal length.

    There are only 2 types of common filter size:
    Cokin P-series. 85mm suitable for most lenses except ultra-wides. Filters are pretty cheap too.
    Lee/ Hitech 100mm filters. bigger in size, much more expensive than P-type. Take note that Lee filters are 2mm thick whereas Hitech filters are 1.5mm thick. Lee filter holder can hold Hitech filters but Hitech holder cannot take Lee filters.

    A note on Hitech/ Lee holders. Please DO NOT go for Hitech holders! I bought one and promptly returned it back because the filter holder will fall off from the front easily when you turn the filter holder. Lee holders are cheaper in built (they are made in plastic whereas Hitech is metal) but it has solid mounting mechanism to prevent the filter holder from falling off when you turn the holder.

    Also for 100mm filters there are 2 types: 100mmx100mm and 100mmx150mm. The former are usually for ND and color filters whereas the later are for GNDs and reverse GNDs.

    Do u have any idea how much was the 150mm filter holder back then from sgcamerastore? If it's affordable, it's a sign to move on to 14-24mm

    Hitech does have 100mmx100mm GNDs but they are not really practical. Are you sure those China ones are glass filters? So far only Lee uses glass on their ProGlass filters and they all cost a bomb!

    Its not that difficult to understand. Let me direct you to 2 links:

    Hitech 100mm x 100mm ND Grads: HT100 ND Grad Filters : Teamwork Digital Ltd, Suppliers of Professional Digital and Large Format Photographic Equipment
    Hitech 100mm x 150mm ND Grads: ND Grad Filters (24/07/09) : Teamwork Digital Ltd, Suppliers of Professional Digital and Large Format Photographic Equipment

    Basically both filters fit 100mm Lee/ Hitech holders BUT the 100mm x 150mm is rectangular whereas the 100mm x 100mm is square. Both types of filters are 100mm in width but the former offers much more room to play, meaning you can slide up and down as much as you want without hitting the edge.

    You can check with them.

    By the way, I'm not sure if the Tokina 11-16 is very different for handling vignetting (though that shouldn't be the case), but I don't get very significant vignetting using just the P series filters with UWA filter holder on the Sigma 10-20 f/4-5.6. Of course when I stack ND110/ND106 with the UWA filter I will get visible vignetting at the extreme corners... But like I've mentioned before, that goes away when I correct for lens distortion in Photoshop CS5.

    hmm... so you are using a single filter holder + nd110 at most?
    i do have a p-holder already, currently using tianya filters. i'll test my stuff again, after my a lvls
    i'm currently looking for a series of hard and soft gnds, of varying densities. not too sure if tianya has, must go and find.

    thanks!
