Why I Prefer the E-5 & Neutral Density filters
1

ND stands for Neutral Density filters. They come in gradations of full stops of light, from 1 stop to 10 stops. They're useful for gaining long expoures in sunlight when you need a long ss, such as photographing motion or water with the soft, blurred look, usually on a tripod.

I don't see it as a practical solution to opening up the aperture in bright sunlight because you often want a clear filter or no filter when the light gets low. You'd have to change filters often. Filters get dusty and dirty on both sides. Dust clings due to static electricity so it's always a challenge to get the dust off the inside. I try to avoid it.
