Wohoo, I hope Pentax will get more endorsement from the celebrities from the far east. Asia and Asia Pacific is the marketing segment that Pentax should be concentrating on - not NA.

Yeah, it's a Cokin/Lee-style ND filter, I'm sure.

I bet it's a Cokin P setup since it is for filter sizes up to 82mm.

That's great to hear. He's a very cool dude. He'd do great business for Pentax if they got him to do some ads in China/ HK/ Taiwan etc.

Good opportunity for Pentax to take advantage of this, if they haven't already.
Still, not everyone can afford a 645D...

Probably a Lee filters set, 100mm std. Roll Royce of the filter world.
