The holder has to clear the entire angle of view of the lens. Your Tokina 11-16mm is pretty wide, and the holder sticks out pretty far.

In fact, the Z Series may not be large enough. You may have to go to the X Series. I suggest you try a good photography store that will let you try them on.

The Cokin graduated ND filters are #121 (See page 64 of http://www.cokin.co.uk/pdf/B026-A.pdf)

Thanks Chato and TCav.
unfortunately the photo stores here only sells the rounded filter!!!!!!!!!!

However, I think instead of buying it online, i'll wait until I travel.

Thanks again guys.

I've never used square filters, or even imagined doing so. What's the advantage? I am totally ignorant of this subject, even though in the course of time I've used many filters.

I assume that there must be one, because manufacturers don't make these products just for the hell of it...
