                Don't listen to the other review's here. These fit perfectly without any modifications. You just have to make sure you use the existing lower spacers that came with the lee filter holder. You can mix it up have 2 x 4mm rails or a 2mm and 4mm rail. Still no vignetting with the Canon 16-35mm F2.8 L II on FF body.

                  These spacers are required for certain thicker filters such as the Cavision glass ones. They are easily installed into the Lee filter holder. The installation info on the Lee web site is helpful. You will probably want the 4mm slot closest to the lens but other options are possible. They work very well once installed.

                      so you can cut off the nubs which are supposed to align the assembly. Then you will succeed in getting these things installed.

                            The lee filter holder kit rails have pegs and holes that make it easier to align multiple rails on each side. The pegs and holes on these new rails didn't quite line up with those on my existing kit. The screw holes line up, just not the guide pegs. I ended up cutting off the pegs and enlarging the holes. This "adjustment" wasn't difficult, but it shouldn't have been necessary.

                              This is an 'expansion' accessories; it does not come with its own end plates. You have to use back the existing end plates or stack it in addition to the existing rails.

                              I have a standard Lee filters 2mm-rail foundation holder. I would like to replace the rails with this 4mm so that it can take Schneider glass filter, while the 2mm rails will be used for some other custom-made holder for the continual use of 2mm resin filters.

                              However, as this rail does not come with end plates, I have to use back the existing end plates. For the custom-made holder, I stacked two 2mm rails together so that the top rail can act as the end plate but I can't practically use it as it caused vignetting to my frequent used wide angle lenses.

                                  Comments about LEE Filters Side Guides for 4mm Thick Filters:

                                  I bought this to use with a 4mm thick ND filter. In short, it screws in and holds the filters fine but it doesn't line up 100% correctly with the 2mm filters that come with the Lee Foundation Kit. These 4mm rails are a bit shorter than the 2mm rails and so the nubs have trouble locking multiple rails in place. I found that the 4mm rails only fit if you stack it on top (the furthest rail from the lens).
