Fuji x-t1 + 10-24 + lee seven5

I'm considering to buy the lee seven5 system but it seems to vignet with the 10-24.

Does anyone has this lens and filter system and could share his experience and samples of the vignetting? If it's correctable in lightroom or not that worse, it saves me some money over the 100mm system.

Thanks

I went with the Hitech 85mm system.
It works fine with the 10-24 IF you can live with a 2 filterholder instead of 3.

Just remove one of the filterholders and replace the screws with the shorter ones that are in the bag as spares.

Even though the LEE has somewhat better filters, you pay so much less with the Hitech system that I couldn't put myself into buying the seven5 filter system due to its extreme high price.

Unfortunately not yet. Have just bought them myself this last friday.

But there are some good reviews available.
All say the same thing.

Lee is the best, but Hitech is not a bad investment considering the price difference.
They seem to come out second best in each of the comparison tests.
Avoid Cokin as it has very bad colour shift.

Camera.nu and Cameratools.nl have them available:

Hitech - http://www.cameranu.nl/nl/c11922/filters/hitech-filters/hitech-85x110mm-filters

vs.

Lee - http://www.cameranu.nl/nl/c11802/filters/lee-filter/resin-filtersets-75x90mm

I have Hi Tech, but have only used the system once. I shot a mountain stream in bright sunlight. All of my photos had a strong magenta cast. I have not pulled them out since, but will before long to give them a fair test. Not encouraged.
I would be pleased to hear that I did something wrong.
