Above poster made good point. In most cases a polarizer and shooting raw then adjusting in post will give you the latitude you need. You can get aa larger ND and step it to the smaller sizes. I do not do that for several reasons. I have the 25mm, 45mm, and 75mm. If I am going to be shooting outside I will usually put an ND on each rather than changing, and with those lenses, the smallest is 37mm and largest 58. So it is a pretty big difference - to me cumbersome. Expensive  though - you are right.

I just ordered a 3-stop Hoya nd in 58mm filter size. It was much cheaper than I thought it would be (on amazon). ..... I checked and to this day, Olympus has not made any m43 lenses with a filter size above 58mm (Panasonic made one 100-300).  So I figured I am safe at 58mm, plus many of my m43 lenses:  14-150, 75 that is coming to me, 40-150 (that I plan to sell because I just got 14-150 and it is covering the same range) all have 58mm filter side, 12-50 has 52...and 45/1.8 has 37 so I can use step up ring.
