I'm looking to pick up some more gels and am just wondering if anyone feels there is a significant difference between Rosco Cinegels and Lee Filters' gels?

I'd imagine there isn't, but thought I'd ask.

Thanks. :)

Only difference I've ever noticed is that Rosco CTB has a slight purple tint when compared to LEE. Nothing to worry about, more of a curiousity.

Some Lee gels don't cross over to the same number from Rosco. Lee has a few gels that Rosco doesn't (1/2 Mustard for one). Lee gel rolls are marked every foot on the perimeter, which makes them the choice for "Pay per use" expendables.

+1 on this but it's a big problem for me. I absolutely will not mix the two brands of the same color, especially the CTB, keep it one or the other.
