Lee Fil­ters has al­ways im­pressed us over the years. Its 100mm sys­tem is ide­ally suited to both DX and FX-for­mat pho­tog­ra­phy, with top-notch hard­ware and pre­mium-qual­ity, hand­made fil­ters. We’re par­tic­u­larly fond of Lee’s grad­u­ated neu­tral den­sity fil­ters, with the choice of soft, medium, hard and very hard tran­si­tions. Some other sys­tems are a good sub­sti­tute, if you’re on a tight budget, in­clud­ing For­matt-Hitech and Cokin Z-Pro, but Lee Fil­ters wins out for dura­bil­ity and for the qual­ity of the com­po­nents. For com­pat­i­bil­ity with a grow­ing range of ul­tra-wide an­gle lenses that lack a fil­ter at­tach­ment thread, it’s worth check­ing out the Lee Fil­ters SW150 Mark II sys­tem. Adap­tors are avail­able for the Nikon 14-24mm, Sigma 12-24mm II and Tam­ron 15-30mm lenses, among oth­ers.
