I need to shade my lenses. I also would like to get some filters. My intention is to get only bay 60 lenses, right now. The question is: has anyone used the pro shade? Is it too bulky to handhold, does it get in the way? I have looked at it in a store, but I would be interested in peoples actual experience. It didnt seem too bad to me... but one never knows after a few hours shooting. Would I wish for a little hood? Also, if I get the hood for the 80mm lens, how would it work for the longer lenses like a 120-180? I know there would be a few degrees that could be shaded that wouldn't, but is it necessary to get the longer hoods? The filters for hassys are INSANE!!! The least expensive being the standard UV, at $100. I cannot believe the price for the polarizer... good god. Obviously the benefit to the pro shade would be the drop in filters, that I can get from a number of manufacturers or even make my own. Thanks!
