It looks like a 100mm filter holder is included with the kit. Then depending
on the filter material (glass, or resin), type (square, rectangular), and
manufacturer the filter cost could run $25-$300.

The Lee assembly for the Rokinon 14/2.8 is USD 320 combined, no filter
included. The lense is USD 290...

You just changed your argument. What does anything regarding the
Rokinon/Samyang 14mm f/2.8 have to do with your original announcement
concerning the system agnostic (Canon/Nikon) Naiad 15mm f/3 Neptune art lens?

Your original complaint is about the Naiad 15mm f/3 Neptune art lens from
Lomography which includes a filter holder for 100x130mm filters, that
particular kit without filters has a cost of $449. The appropriate Canon, or
Nikon baseplate the price is $299, bringing the cost of a working lens to
$748.

https://shop.lomography.com/en/lenses/neptune-convertible-art-lens/naiad

They sell various multi-lens (15, 35, 50, & 80mm) bundles with filter kits,
including a selection of filters for $1249.

50_adaptor_for_samyang.html

https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produ...sw150fh_sw150_
mkii_filter_holder.html


That is most expensive Lee filter holder for wide angle lenses. Why match it
with a budget lens?

https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produ..._C_14mm_Ultra_
Wide_Angle_f_2_8.html


So what?

Lee Filters and various adaptors for their system are known to be costly, and
if you are looking for specialized mount rings for oddball budget
Rokinon/Samyang lenses they will be appropriately expensive. Check on the
cost of some of the more reputible filter systems for wide/ultrawide angle
lenses with specialized filterholders for 100mm, 150mm, or 4x4 filters.

Why not see what Cokin, or some of the throw-away Chinese filters can do for
your budget lens?

I most certainly did not change the subject! This was the original post:

No complaints but merely a verification of the facts...

No. Filter holders are easy and cheap to make as integrated parts of
lens hoods and that's where they should be placed especially for popeye
lenses. Filters for holders are sold separetly and can vary very much
in price and IQ. I read on a DPR forum about a guy who swore on welding
glas for planet passages and eclipses! Can't remember the link. YMMV...
