I saw a guy with a Lee kit that had graduated ND and others that he could attach to his lenses and he could use any of his lenses regardless of 72/77/82mm.

What products are out there that make sense to purchase?

Thanks

To me, it only makes sense to use those holders with graduated ND filters. Otherwise they get clumsy and slow you down. I've gone the opposite way regarding filters. (I mostly only use polarizers or solid ND.) I try to buy only lenses that take 67mm or 77mm filters.

I also use solid ND filters too. I but my largest size (82mm) and then step down (rings) to my other sizes. I don't find I really need a hood and if I do, because i'm usually on a tripod when using them, I use small foldable shade to block

I use B+W and Zeiss CP and ND filters at 49mm, 58mm, 72mm, 77mm, and 82mm, with a variety of step-up rings for intermediate lens filter sizes. I also have a number of Kodak Wratten ND filters cut to size, to fit behind the 77mm and 82mm filters, when I need a lot of dark. I also have a 4x4 Lee filter system for off-the-wall stuff, like IR and B&W colour filters, but it doesn't get much use. I don't use graduated ND filters, as I rarely shoot a flat horizon; I prefer to bracket exposure and combine in PP.

i used to use filters way back in the day, but have done alright with out them the last 3 years or so, but i had a 14-24 that didn't take filters cheaply.

Now that i sold that lens and have a few zeiss lenses that take filters, the two types of filters i will get are a polarizer and maybe an ND filter. Breakthrough filters are supposed to be the best on the market. I have had B+W and at the time i think those were the best.

I have a 14-24 and I really never thought of using filters with it to begin with. it is my one sorta specialized chunk of glass with somewhat limited overall use.

things become the norm and are accepted as "standards". the minute another thing challenges that "standard" some things are forced to rethink their position. progress

breakthrough forced the rethinking of some filter products
