    What does everyone think about the Cokin line of filters? I was looking into then for my D40/60 when I get it and they look very appealing. How do you all like them?

    Which filter(s) are you thinking of? I've used them for many years, and generally I'm happy with them, however like any gel filter you have to be careful as light hitting the edge of the filter can cause interesting colour casts.

    Hoya filters are also good quality, IMHO.

    A coated filter will cost a little more, but worth it in the long run.

    I have a lot of filters left from my 35mm days, maybe 40+ of them,
    that are all 52mm to fit most of my lenses.

    Having fun playing with them to see what they actually do on a DSLR.

    I have a Cokin holder and some filters...I don't think I've used them at all, since going digital. Most filters are obsolete with the digital workflow.

    Mike--I know this, but I dont have PS.
    tirediron--I thought the Cokin were glass? They all say that they are glass in the description. I am looking at the Z-pro series.
