Planning to buy ND filters, Help/Tips?

Good day,

I'm planning to buy ND filters but there's many types of ND like 3 stops 6...and the black filter 10 stops. As of now I'm leaning towards the 10 stops and will be used with my 16-50 which is 72mm. I will buy Sony shutter cable also.

Any other suggestions?

Will the 10 stops for a newbie like me appreciate it or should I stick with lowest stops? Might be possible should I buy both 10 and another 3 or 6 stops?

In the future I might end up buying "graduated ND" if so, is it better of buying Lee filters for more flexibility, stacking filters? or stick first at standard ND filters 10 and 3/6 stops?

Thank you very much and sorry if I have too many questions... ND filters are a little bit expensive filters (specially LEE, expensive).
