Oly 9-18 and filters (filters question actually)

hi, I have the opportunity to buy this lens and the following filters:

  • Hoya Pro ND1000
  • Hoya HMC NDX4 52mm
  • Hoya Pro1 Digital Circular Polarizer 52mm

I don't have much experience with filters, but here are my thoughts and welcome anyone who can share their experiences.

  • Hoya Pro ND1000

I think its good for long exposure photos in daylight...maybe its only use?

  • Hoya HMC NDX4 52mm

I think this would be good to freeze motion like water falls (not sure what else)

  • Hoya Pro1 Digital Circular Polarizer 52mm

Good to permanently leave on your camera as a lens protector? Or is this to bring out colors in high contrast scenes?

I've read about IQ degradation and colour cast....is this an issue?  These are all slim so not sure I have to worry about vignetting.
