Variable ND for Canon 24-70 for stills?

I do a bit of  long exposure (10-30 seconds) as well as panning (1/30) photography.

I was wondering if a Variable ND filter would be useful for those scenarios? I realize that I may only be able to get to 5-6 stops before X banding becomes an issue.

The other options is  just get a fixed ND filter.

For a Variable ND, Hoya  seems to have a bit lower cost options ($129) compared to others which seem to be $150 and higher. Any suggestions on the specific brands?
