Cokin and rave reviews hmmmm i smell marketing money. Seriously there is no way Cokin and rave reviews should ever be in the same sentence. The filters have awful colour cast. The Cokin holders are poor, in fact no they are just plain awful, the Z pro is way over priced- save your self in the long run by a lee holder and buy any insert you want but i implore you dont buy a cokin slide.
One more thing to consider when looking at buying holders, its not just that it holds a filter- thats what its meant to do, its not either just a case of how many filters it holds, its a case of will it hold a filter on my lens without causing any vignetting or causing sever light fall off in the corners. If your shooting no more than say 17mm on a crop camera body then your fine this wont be a problem, but if your any where between 10 and 14mm on a crop you will be affected by this, if you shoot FF then anything below 24mm you may find yourself affected by the cokin filter system, especially a 3 stack holder.
If you want i shall post some pictures to show the lee and cokin p systems.
