I have just moved to a Canon 350D, my first digital SLR. My wife uses a film SLR and Cokin lens filters
http://www.cokin.com/index.html

What is the opinion of the Cokin filter system? It looks like a easy & cheap way for both of us to use the same filters with different size lens, without having to buy screw in type filters for each size lens.

I am a little concern about the camera's auto focus system and the end of the lens being able to turn freely.

If your lens has internal focus (IF) the front element does not rotate... (a must for polarizer)

Ditto with internal zooming: the lenght of the lens stays constant throughout the zoom range, ie it does not extend or contract (and s_ucks in those dust particles like a bicycle pump)

-> Pick your lenses wisely :idea:
