i've got the Z-pro and 17-40 and it doesn't vignette at all. i have modified the holder so that it only accepts 2 filters at a time though, have you tried that?

The modified filter holder will work on 16-35 through the full range only if the modification is made AND all slots are removed except ONE. What is the purpose of that.  I can just screw on a single 10-stop and get that.

I wrote Lee filters and they confirmed my observations but seem to think that the limitations are acceptable so I don't think they will be producing a 130x130mm (X-pro size)

I may experiment with the X-Pro holder to see if I can make it so that it holds a 100mm sized filter (Z-Pro size) in the first slot. Of coarse then the first slot can't be the polarizer so it still won't be a perfect solution.
