Thanks Nathan. So are you more inclined towards Jens Faerber's kit, which has setups for either 52mm or 43mm filters, or the Lensmate kit, which will take 49mm ones?

One way it differs from the available Jens Faerber kit and the not yet available Lensmate kit is that the filters themselves attach to a receiver base unit via magnets, as opposed to being screwed in.

I am wondering if magnets can interact badly with the electronics within the camera (and if I am unclear on the concept, please go easy!).

Magnets shouldn't matter to the camera.

However, I am inclined to go with a solution that has standard industry filter threads, which open up possibilities for filters that may be more flexible.

That said, I think the least bulky solution that gets me in with a good circular polarizer that is easy to adjust quickly and accurately on the fly will likely be what I 'settle' for, as a balance between flexibility and keeping the camera pocketable.
