Hi Neil - I think you might have to go up to Z Pro filters and holders for 82mm. My 77mm adapter looks like it is pretty much at the limit for P type holders and filters. I would imagine that Cokin P holders would vignette on an 82 mm lens.

You can get third party equivalents of the Cokin A and P holders on Ebay for 2 or 3 GBP. There are just plastic and so there is not much to worry about in terms of quality from the Cokin original. I'm sure the Z Pro size will have some third party versions as well. I also buy cheaper adapters from eBay - as long as the screw thread is ok there is not much point to buying an expnsive one.

What lens are you using with a 82mm thread? Sounds like a monster :D .
Nex 5, Nex 6 (IR), A7M2, A99 and a bunch of lenses.

Z Pro filters sound interesting mate.

Am using a Sigma 24-70mm f2.8 EX DG... bit of a hefty monster!!!

Hi sorry I'm late to this one but definately Z series. I've got a Sigma 150 - 500mm lens and the P series just doesnt go that high up. The Z series is good and slightly less pricey than Lee filters. Works well though.

You can try the Z-series, but the holder is clunky to use. The lee holder works great, but is often not in stock. The Century optics holder is basically the same one.

This one comes with a 77mm ring, but 82 mm is also available.

For U.S. consumers, 2filter is a great company and has just about anything you could want...
