Its a decent filter for the prize.
Does its job as intended.
1 Stop may not be all that effective to notice any siginificant benefit but I bought it to stack it on a 3 stop filter for certain conditions.
Filter looks extremely cheap, almost like a cheap widnow of a chinese made toy bus... but the box looks more expensive then the filter ... in fact the box is made of really good durable platsic material and looks elegent. I think Cokin needs to spend more money on the glass even if it means giving cheaper or no box.
The filter definately looks rediculously cheap on my L glass but at the moment I am willing to spend only this much as I need to learn more about using filters correctly. Once I get good at it, I will definately buy better quality filters. I would recommend it only for those who have entry level lenses or if you are like me who wants to learn first before spending extra on better filters.

        Does exactly what it is suppose to do which is bring down the sky or any subject down a stop. I have the three stop version but sometimes you need something not quite so dark. And a great price too

          The filter gave my photos of Manhattan Skyline just that little extra deep colour of the sky that I was looking for - both in sunlight and ealy evening.

                  One filter used on different lenses thanks to the holder kit from Cokin.
                  Does the job. Makes daylight photography more fun and adds more 'drama' to bright indoor photography.
                  Worth building a good set of these...

                  The graduations are not consistent from one grad filter to the next, so you have to hunt through them, but once you have an 'even' set, they're fine. Square filters are a hassle to use, but once you've got the tripod out, well, how much worse can it get? If you want the results...
