We don't carry Lee stuff, only Cokin, but I'll see if I can find something tomorrow that would work.

PS, tell Al to call me back so I can ship his X100 out! Fucker's a hard guy to get a hold of! :rofl:

Actually a quick google found this gem... a guy that DIY'd a filter older for the Cokin X-Pro filters, I'll see if I can get a call into Cokin tomorrow and ask if they've got any ideas or suggestions for you!

So I took a look today at what we've got in the back of the store, nothing that would be useful to you.

I looked at our distributor for Cokin and gave them a call--they're out of the X-Pro holders and aren't expecting them anytime soon (ie. 10+ weeks).

I'm going to play around tomorrow with the 14-24 we have in the store, I've actually got a pretty cool idea of how to mount a large resin filter to the hood of the 14-24 using some high power magnets... I'll keep you informed.

fuckin magnets..... :rofl: thanks a lot for going out of your way!!

And yet another reason why I went with the 16-35. :o

i'm contemplating renting this lens for my vacation.....the 14-24 is so goddamn glorious, hopefully i can find a solution before then.

Trust me, the 16-35 is every bit as impressive. Not having that huge delicate front element sticking out isn't a bad thing either. :cool:

How sharp is it compared to the 14-24mm? I had a 14-24mm for a bit and then sold it to my cousin, but at times wish I had it again.

And like you said, having a protectable and not nearly as beastly front element is a huge plus.

It's stupid sharp. Search for my review thread.

No sub...no search para mi. Mind finding it for me...right now my WA is a 18-35mm, which I love, especially for a sub $300 lens. Shot with it in Southern Utah and everything was sharp (albeit not as sharp as the lenses we're discussing) but for a 1/3 or 1/5 of the price it's not bad, plus it's portable.

i'm gonna rent a 16-35 for the trip in july. I've emailed bh,adorama, 2filter, allens camera, and tried the locals b&c/casey's, and they all told me the same thing basically. "goodluck". this was the response i got from 2filter which is where everyone that seems to have one got it from.

"[FONT=&quot]Hi Brenton,[/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]There has only been 1 shipment of 15 of these kits to the US since they started production. We are taking orders for a waitlist, but to be perfectly realistic, I doubt that we will get enough in to fill our current waitlist before July. [/FONT]

[FONT=&quot]Thank you,[/FONT]
