  • \$\begingroup\$ Laurence, one question. How did you thread Cokin filter holder on Hoya CPL filter via Cokin Z-pro adaptor (77mm wide angle adaptor, I think)? :) It's impossible for Lee's ones :) \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ Hi Garik ,, I have Lee foundation kit .. I just screw in the polariser on the lens, 77mm Lee wide angle adaptor on it, and fit all three filters in Lee foundation kit (all the filters are 100mmx150mm (100mm square for ND STD) that all fit on Lee's holder) .. Thanks. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ So it's possible. Thanks, Laurence. It makes sense to not buying Lee 100x100 Circular Polarising Glass filter (~ £147), if you have Hoya one. \$\endgroup\$
