Ok, I know you will say "search the forums" but I have a specific question and would like any users to let me know their experiences. I have a 100mm filter set which, up to now, i have been holding in front of the lens. Time for a holder. I nearly got the Cokin z pro. but am going the for Lee foundation kit, based on forum discussions, unless anyone can shout the praises of 'Z'. I have a 10-20 so will get the wide adaptor for that @ 77mm.
I have an 18-200 with a 72mm thread. Any advise or experience with the holder. could I use the standard lee adaptor and save myself 20. I have chunky UV and CPs and will take them of if I need to. Camera D80, 1.6 x crop I think.

I use the foundation kit & wide angle adapter on my 10-22, and 24-105 as both have 77mm front ends. I would say unless you can test a standard adapter then go for the wide angle at72mm aswell, like everything in photography if you try and cut corners you end up up-grading in the end, which inevitably costs more.

Incidently I use a 30D with a 1.6 crop too.
