    I was very keen to get some filters, even went and did some research on the Haida brand and found them to be a reasonable filter for the price. After creating an account and selecting the 3 filters that I wanted, I then proceeded to checkout only to see the cost of shipping was $30, far too much sorry.

    These were the filters:

    I also like to try and help Rick out too where I can .

    I did have a quick look on ebay, and the horror story gets even worse, searched for this filter: Haida 77mm Neutral Density 0.9 (8x) Multi-coating PRO II ND Filter and got a couple of hits, you can buy it from the website and pay through the nose for
    shipping and still get it a couple of dollars cheaper than off ebay with free shipping.

    Not stepping on my toes at all. feedback to business is always good. The postage does seem to be a lot.

    Have to agree about the postage. I was a bit surprised when it suddenly jumped to $30 when the website said $25....which I thought was a bit steep for one filter anyway.
    However, I have been after a 10 stop filter for my Sigma 10-20 and even including the $30 postage and with a 5% discount it came to $111.and a few cents. This is still a lot cheaper than the B&W 10 stop that I was going to buy from a Sydney store (not sure if I am allowed to name them so I won't, but I have dealt with them before and they are very good) which was $159 + postage. So I have ordered one through Hypop.

    Just a quick reply m8, I will send you a PM later on tonight when I get home from work, and get some details off you as I would really like the filters they have, and it would be a good starting point for me.
