    Two graduated greys is pretty boring, one is enough.

    I would have changed the other one to a graduated mauve or something :dunno:

    Also you should have skipped A and gone to P, you cant use A on any wide angle lens.

    Ditto on the P series, A Cokins are too small.

    no you are missing the point. the A series holders / filters are too small to fit any wide aperture or wide angle lens. Even if you find adapters to fit the holder will obstruct the lens and you will get some serious, ugly vignette.

    indeed. if you put an adapter ring on a wide angle lens. the lens is so wide that it iwll capture the edges of the adapter ring and a lot of your images will have nasty vignette.

    For $200, you're halfway in getting a good lens to replace the 18 55.
