When it comes to screw on filters I have ND, CPF, and only one Variable ND. I 
have not been impressed with the variable ND, and it doesn’t get that much 
use. Most recently I bought a few of the Hoya Solas IRND filters.


I use the screw on filters for those times it is inconvenient to use the Lee 
ND and ND Grad system. The Lee system also includes a pretty good CPF. I use 
the Lee Seven5 system with my Fujifilm X-cameras.
