Default Screw or Square filters, Tamron 10-24

Hi Chums,
I got a Tamron 10-24. just wondering if the cokin p holder will vignette at 10mm?
I got a couple of screw in filts at the mo. One prob I find is if i got a Nd32 screwed on and I want to change compo I have to keep unscrewing it to check whats there as it too dark to see. I'm thinking with the slot in type itll be much easier. I guess Ill have to be more careful with the acrylic slot in filts as at the mo i use the glass screw in ones and keep them floating about in my pocket.
I had cokin P years ago and found it good but never tried it with a wide. I did find the polarizer a bit fiddly to turn but I can live with that. Ill get some of those cheapo acrylics If i go this route as i love to degrade the image more than my wallet, Lol.
Lateeeeerr Chums.
Mark

The Cokin Z-Pro filters will vignette at a focal length of about 14mm. To go wider, you may have to go with the X-Pro filters, but you may have trouble mounting the filter holder.

Thank you Tcav.
Ill have a nose at the x-pro ones but suspect they might be out of my price range.
Its really only the dark nd filter that i,m thinking would be better slot in so will have a look into making a holder for some acrylic. blue peter style. and a welding mask. Lol.
