Oh, and if you can be bothered, I'd be very grateful to see any results that you feel you've had success with using such a combination.

Here are some test shots I took with Cokin and Hitech filters mounted on an M. Zuiko 12/2.0, in order:

1) Hitech 3-stop reverse grad (hard edge)

2) Cokin 3-stop grad (hard edge)

3) Cokin 2-stop grad (hard edge)

4) Control shot

5) Cokin linear polariser

Some things to note - firstly the colour casts made by the filters when compared with the control shot (4th photo). The Cokins have a particularly strong colour cast. The Hitech has a slight colour cast too, but it is very easily corrected because it basically just cools the colour temperature a bit.

The rectangular thing stuck to the wall is a grey card.

Hitech 3-stop reverse grad (hard edge)

Cokin 3-stop grad (hard edge)

Cokin 2-stop grad (hard edge)

Control shot - no filter

Cokin - A polariser
