Does anyone know of a 77mm polarizer with a thread that a Cokin Z-Pro filter holder would screw onto so that I can use the polarizer and my Lee ND Grads together?

Thanks in advance

Er... I can't think of a screw-in polariser that wouldn't allow you to put screw in your adapter ring and add your filter holder. They should all enable you to do this, provided you have a 77mm ring for your filter holder.

I tried this a few times with the Hoya Moose filter, which is a Polariser with a weak 81A warming effect, my favourite. It fits, and there's no problem, except that I felt my shots were over filtered; which was my fault, not the filters. It should work with any filter that has outer threads. BTW, I was using Cokin Z-Pro also.

I have a 77mm Canon polarizer but unfortunately it doesn't have outer threads

I'll sell you mine, I don't have anything close to a 77mm anymore. I'll enable PM if you want to contact me.

Actually, what I have is the Hoya Moose Circular Polariser with weak 81A warming effect, 77mm, and a 67mm-77mm lens to filter step-up ring.

Sorry about that. I enabled it yesterday, but didn't hit save. It's done now.

Thanks Folks
I decided to go down the Hoya road. I tried to get a Hoya Moose but no luck so I ended up with the standard circ. polarizer
