I have a question: does the big stopper come with the tin? I don't think a pouch will be adequate protection.
BTW

Got mine yesterday for Christmas. It was in a Tin box. I agree on the level of protection, but I just put it in the pouch that came with the system holder.

Btw. I do not understand why the adaptor rings come in anything other than wide... What is there to gain from a non-wide adaptor ring?

Instead of gaining, think of getting the non-wide rings as losing less - the wide ones cost more.

That might very well be, but beside a negible price difference, you stand to win nothing by going for the non-wide solution..., but on the contrary, you win a great deal in areas of use, imho

Just pointing out the only advantage. While it's negligible in absolute terms, the 77mm WA ring costs double the standard.  I agree the WA is a better choice, and that's why all my adapters are that type.

I agree :) I know you have talked about your 24TS before. Have you tried the Lee on TS lenses? I am debating buying the lens adaptor for the 17TS. Any experiences I can benefit from shooting filters on these type of lenses?

I have just gotten my system, only to realise that I need much more :) Tomorrow I am buying the three soft grad NDs (.3, .6. and .9), as I only have a .6 ND, and a .6 hard grad ND (in addition to the big stopper and round circular polarizer). I also got the small beautiful book Inspiring Professionals II, - a great inspirational book.

Yes, with the 24mm.  The Lee adapter for the TS-E 17 doesn't allow the full range of TS movements without vignetting, but if you can live with that it looks like a good option.

I guess I'll have to wait for mine indefinitely. Mine was supposed to be delivered on the 24th, but I was supposed to leave that day for Oregon so I requested it to be re-routed. Now it is supposed to be delivered on the 2nd, the day I am supposed to return from Oregon. I wonder what to do, but in any case I shall not be shooting Oregon waterfalls this time, and that's a big bummer :(

If there is any consolation, the weather here in Oslo this Christmas is pretty awful. Twice I have tried to go out to test the new gear, both times I had to return without any pictures due to heavy rain.....

I have already mentioned the book in this thread, Inspiring professionals II. I am just done reading it, and it is great. Some great landscape photographers who shares their experiences and the filter setup. I now have to buy the first of these books :) When not being able to shoot due to weather, book are a nice substitute :)
