I really want to start messing with long exposure work….and it seems this might be my only way to pull it off using this lens…. I know the horrors I face… but it will take me a few months to save up… any full timers played with this monster? Anyone have one.. they seem to be unavailable everywhere…

SW150 Filter Holder
Now available to order, the new LEE Filters SW150 Filter System specifically designed to fit the Nikon 14-24mm lens.
LEE Filters have developed an entirely new filter system that enables you to use graduated and standard filters on a Nikon 14-24mm lens.
Initially being offered only for the 14-24mm, the system comes as a Starter Kit containing the holder, a unique adaptor collar for the lens, a 0.6ND (2 stop) hard graduated filter and a neoprene lens cap that fits over the collar when the holder is not attached.
A full range of resin graduated and standard filters will be available to order but there will be no Polarizer or Big Stopper available for this system. The filter sizes for the system are 150mm x 170mm for graduated filters and 150mm x 150mm for standard filters. The holder is fully rotational enabling greater flexibility when positioning graduated filters.
Also available is the SW150 System Adaptor, this allows you to attach to the SW150 onto any standard LEE adaptor ring, enabling you to use the SW150 on any other lenses you have.
They have used with one of the Big Stoppers?
New from LEE Filters, the BIG Stopper is a high quality glass 10 stop long exposure filter. It reduces the amount of light entering your lens by 10 stops allowing you to use a much slower shutter speed or wider lens aperture.
By greatly extending exposure times the BIG Stopper has the effect of allowing anything that is moving in your image to become blurred or ghost like, for example, clouds, waterfalls, rivers, and the sea. However the effect is not limited to landscapes, the filter can be used on cityscapes to blur people or roads and freeways to blur traffic.
The BIG Stopper fits the standard LEE 100mm Filter Holder allowing it to be used on a number of different lenses as well as in conjunction with other filters such as neutral density graduated filters.
The BIG Stopper will be available from LEE Filters dealers from March 2010.
