    I have the exact same lens & I use normal screw in glass filters. Mostly with 95mm filters with an adapter ring. It works perfectly, but if you use any extreme camera movements and it will quickly vignette.

    I would suggest investing in a Lee Holder and a wide angle mounting flange. They are pricey but in the long run they'll pay off. The holder holds 100mmx100mm resin, poly, or gel filter, and what I like about it is that you can stack filters: you can stack several ND filters to get 6-8 or more stop changes.

    You ought to look at the Lee system. Their graduated neutral density filters, in both hard and soft graduations, are particularly useful. Also, their system uses adapter rings to allow you to avoid having to duplicate filters to accommodate different lens filter thread sizes. This allows you to have one set of filters that, with an adapter ring, can be fitted to any lens you have up to 95mm. Actually, in some cases, with more adapters, slightly larger than that--depending on the lens.

    Obviously, I type too slow.

    In a pinch - either with no stepdown ring or if the stepdown ring causes vignetting, you can use tacky (not real sticky) tape, like the blue masking tape, to attach a larger diameter glass filter to the lens.

    If the gel filter is flapping in the wind, you can just tape it down. You are using it in a gel filter holder, right? I would also use a lens hood, which in these cases would also double as a wind shield.

    Reminds me of one time in which the wind knocked over my Sinar C and Bogen 3051. It was up on one leg and about to hit the deck, but luckily I caught it.

    The filter holder is made by Eastman Kodak and is made of wood and holds a 4x4 filter. Funny how "it's all I have" can so quickly turn into "I need more!" :o

    Maybe you can rig a frame for the edges of the filter so that it fits more tightly into the slot on the holder. You could use one of several materials, such as card stock, brass shim stock, wood veneer strips, or even just thin strips of tape.

    Thanks...but I have an even better one (I think): Put the shims into the slot itself, instead of onto each filter. Wooden strips might be a good starting point. Balsa is sold at hobby/train stores in thin sheets of various thicknesses, or you can get plenty if you buy a $1.00 toy glider and use the leftover scraps. Then you get a cool toy airplane as well!
