Now that we've been discussing them, I'm afraid I'm going to have to buy some reverse grads. Argh!

This is an interesting thread as I have the Nikon 14-24mm F2.8 ED and its a beautiful lens but it is often commented you can't use filters on it because of the large aspherical lens at front. The Lee or Cokin holder for it is a cool $700+. So do you think I could handhold a 100 x 150mm filter in front of it and light would not get in through the sides?

What sort of graduated or straight ND filter would you recommend for landscape type shots? I am using a Tiffen titanium .6 grad ND 77mm filter on my other lenses. It seems fine except it is rigid in that the graduation is at the halfway point only. Whereas a square of rectangular filter you could slide up or down to suit.
