Where do you all get your filters?
I've just got me a system for attaching filters to my lens (I got the NiSi V5-Pro system) and I'm looking for some LEE GND filters, either hard or medium edge.
Looking for recommendations of places to check out that likely won't cost me a kidney.

For anyone else looking for a filter system, the V5-Pro is really good.
It comes with three adapter rings for different size lenses as well as a CPL filter. If you already have any screw-in filters for the front of your lens, the system attaches to them, so you can still make use of them.

Local photography specialist (I've got 2 in town and a choice of another 4, including 2 that sell second hand kit, around the office).

I then double check with online prices. If the local prices are half-way reasonale, I buy locally. I believe in supporting local stores, otherwise there will be nowhere left, where you can get professional advice and try out kit, so I'm willing to pay a bit over the "Internet" price of a product to support knowledgeable shops.

I understand the need to buy locally, and I'd love to do it, but I don't know of any local independent photography shops near to where I live.
The best I've managed to do is find a printers about 20 miles from me that I'm using for all my personal wall prints, but there's no hardware place, sadly.
I guess I'll just have to keep doing what I do already, check online retailers and hunt for what I want at reasonable prices.
