Lee filter system

I’ve been considering the Lee filter system for my Sony HVR-V1U. I had some questions I was hoping someone might be able to answer.

First, I ‘ve seen some matteboxes which are advertised as designed specifically for the 16:9 format. This has made me wonder if there might be a chance of vignetting with the standard accordion-style Lee lens hood, and if it may be better if I chose the wide-angle hood.

Second, I was planning on getting a UV filter to protect the front of the camera lens. Since the UV filter would always be in use, I was thinking of getting a standard round screw-on filter, attaching it to the front of the camera lens, and then mounting the Lee filter holder to the screw-on filter. Do you think that would work alright and wouldn’t put undue stress on the UV filter?

Also, nothing I’ve seen has explained how the filters are held in place in the Lee filter holder slots. Whatever method is used, I assume it’s secure yet allows for flexible vertical positioning (so that ND splits/grads can be positioned where needed)?

That should be fine.
