Hello,

I'm looking for a filter system, to use with the OM-D EM-1 and the 12-40mm, I know Lee, Cokin, Hitech, but I don´t know wich is the better size. Size a o P in Cokin, or the Seven5 of Lee. I've read that the transition in the P filters is no the correct for the m4/3 cameras.

What do you thin?

Thanks

I've just spent the last week researching this and in the end opted for the Lee Seven5 system. i've ordered the Delux kit with Big Stopper, Polariser and hard and Soft Grads. I'll update once they arrive

I've never noticed any issues with Cokin P filters. They wouldn't work with the Bigmos or anything with a similar extremely large front element, and are unlikely to work with fisheye lenses due their very wide field of view.
I can't think of any reason the lens mount should effect filters that go on the other end of the lens.

Cokin A would probably work OK for many of my µ4/3 lenses, but they aren't recomended for many of todays lenses. I can get away with using 25mm filters on my 17mm f2.8 without noticable vignetting. So the even the A size would be fine for that!
