Hi,

I would like to get a little more creative with my nex 5, with some long exposure shots etc. So I would quite like some filters. All I have so far is a UV and a circular polarising which has been very useful esp for things like car photos.

Can anyone give me advice on the most useful and/or creative filters.

For nd filters what strength of filter should I be looking for.

I have seen square graduated filters with a mount to fit it to the lens. But can you just get a circular filter to just screw on.

I would be using them on the 50mm f1.8 prime and the original 18-200 zoom. So which filter is best for which lens as I don't want to buy two sets of filters unless I have to.

Lastly, which makes are best, and is it worth spending the extra money on better quality filters. Are they that much better?

Thanks very much for any help.
