I honestly keep forgetting about the electronic shutter on Fuji cameras.

Is there any reason to use an ND filter over the electronic shutter to nail exposure with this wide open on sunny days?

Electronic shutter changes the bokeh which the lens produces. If bokeh is your primary objective try testing side by side if it is relevant for you. Here explained

Thanks for pointing that out, yes that definitely was my use case.

I do wonder why this is the case though, maybe it's because we don't have a true global shutter. Either way, I wonder whether it's worth the price of an ND filter, I'll conduct some tests and see what I notice.
