A few questions on CPL and ND Filters from a "noob" perspective

Hello. I am new to this type of photography and even though I have some experience with other genres, I have never bought a CPL or a ND filter.

Because I always try to invest in quality products (and spend once, if possible) I was thinking about to get a B+W Kaesemann CPL and a ND Filter.

My questions are:

  • CPL and ND filter. Which one do you think should I buy first? Which one is the "must have"?
  • I am not sure about those cheap kit composed of 3 ND filters. Should I go first with a good quality one? (The more you spend, the less you spend?)
  • I generally tend to not shoot when the sun is too harsh, reason why I was thinking a ND 64 COULD be good. Or, should I just get the 10-stop and I'm gonna be fine?
  • Last question: can I put a 82 mm CPL on a lower diameter lens? Is there any limitation?

Thank you for your time and responses and sorry for the long post!
