Hello folks. I am just getting into large format (4X5) and shoot B&W exclusively. To date I have acquired 4 lenses ranging from 90 to 300 mm, and of course they all need differant filter sizes. Most of my shooting is outdoors. I have never been a large user of filters, however I feel I need to have them on hand should the opportunity present itself.. I would like not to degrade the lenses I have acquired, and also to keep the costs reasonable. My choices at this point a: Cokin P system starting with their BW Kit, and a polarizer b. Lee 4X4 resin filters c. Lee Snap on rubber band gizmo with their gel set. d. Conventional glass filters, of a size to fit the largest lens (72mm) and adapters for the other lenses. A set of filters for each lens is not desireable, both from a cost and carrying limitations Item C. is by far the lowest in cost US$60+ and appears to sove the problem but just seems to gimicky? Comments on these alternatives or other suggestions welcome.
