Does anyone know the quality of Formatt-Hitech filters? Does it compare to Lee?

Title says it all. I've been using Faithful for the most part. In Lightroom, I use the sharpness and clarity sliders EVERY time. I found that using Auto picture style gives me a little more sharpness in my preview. I shoot RAW so I know this is not THAT big of a deal. Just wondering what you guys are using normally.
"Sickening" to see what you get as a CPS member in the USA compared to the "benefits" in Europe (http://cpn.canon-europe.com/content/services/faqs.do).
I've just received a new 77mm MRC Nano XS-PRO UV Filter and the box doesn't have the usual B+W/Genuine Product green hologram. Instead it has a silver hologram on the left side of the box which says Schneider Kreuznach on it and underneath that it says 9FFQ3T.
Should I be concerned? I know Schneider is B+W but all my other filters have the green B+W hologram and I haven't seen anything online about this changing. It might be my imagination but the black box doesn't look quite so black as well...but I'm at work at the moment so can't check if this is the same as my other XS-PRO ones. The filter itself seems to look about right.
I have a 600D/T3i and want to get the infrared effect I used to get with infrared film way back... I can't afford to get a camera just for this, and get it specially converted. I've bought a couple of 720mn filters from E-bay to try and get the effect I want.
I've used custom white balance, long exposures etc, on sunny days but am not seeing any typical effects e.g. white grass. One of the filters, a Green L, has just been reviewed in Digital SLR magazine, and was considered to work.
I haven't tried messing around in software yet as, according to the article, it should be possible to see the basic effect, in camera, on the LCD.
Although I did the test with a TV remote control to assess whether my 600D, could see IR wavelengths, and it could, I don't seem to be getting anywhere with this!
Has anyone had success with a normal, rather than converted, 600D?
When was the last time your 1.4 doesn't make it that you need 1.2?
I was wondering what is the the deal with this lens? There has been no update of this lens (as far as I know) from its version 1. No one here on CR talks about it or asks of it or mentions it!! There is not even a lens gallery for this lens on here! So no one uses/has this lens here? Just idly wondering.
I'm just wondering, are Canon blind and not understanding that the competition is right on their heels? Why would someone pay $1300 for an 24-70 f4, when they have competitors that make a 24-70 f2.8, of better IQ, for the same price?
thanks for the reply
using the software involves stitching images together
there are lenses that take an all round shot in one single shot
that's what i was referring to
i assumed there was a few different makes?
(thanks for replying - i thought this one had slipped by and no one replied)
