Are they any good, or should I just get a fixed one(s)?
Cheers.

I recommend fixed ones.

What concerns do you have about them after doing your internet searches? There are lots of opinions about them you can find.

Do a search on the Gear Forum (and Canon) - many ND threads to be found.

If you're needing wide to ultra-wide and already using an ND / GND holder - used fixed. If not the variable ND's should work.

I've used a Singh-Ray Vari-ND for a few years, and I like the convenience; indispensable for bright light waterfalls/waves...still, a 77mm was expensive, 16-35 & 24 TS-E lenses are 82mm, and ultra-wides often (usually?) require a filter holder because of bulging elements...so, simplicity can be limiting. I don't shoot much really wide, so I haven't re-invested in holders since I switched from film, and only occasionally miss the ol' bag-o-filters...

I have both but find the fixed one is what I carry, the Sing Ray does not go wide enough for my taste. You also have to deal with this cross polarization look on blue skies, totally unusable, so I mostly pack the B+W 10 stop ND.
