How good is Live ND feature in E-M1 iii ?


For E-M1 iii I am looking for wide-angle lens for Astrophotography and Landscapes (including sea, river, sky, lightning, etc.).

I know that Olympus 7-14mm f/2.8 will be little better than Panasonic 8-18mm f/2.8-4, because of little more wide and constant aperture. But Oly will not take filters. If I choose to go with that, is Live ND filter enough good that I won't miss real filters?
Even if it it minor difference, I won't bother. But if the statement is "Live ND feature is just bad and just a marketing tactic, then I think Panasonic should be my preference, along with external filter.

What do you say?
