I had in mind UV filters for each lens to use as lens protectors . I’m also thinking about a ND filter or 2 or 3? for each lens, and perhaps a polarizer?

You've got some good recommendations, but I didn't see a mention of step-rings.

Of course if you want UV filters for protection, you'll get one for each lens, but when it comes to ND filters (or any other filters except the UVs), you should be able to get by with a single set at the largest size (82mm works for a collection of GF lenses) and then use step-rings to use them on lenses with a filter size smaller than the largest (such as a 82mm to 72mm, 82mm to 67mm, 82mm to 58mm, etc.)

Thanks, Chris. I’m not sure how, or if, I’ll be using ND filters. I have a polarizer for one lens fairly soon, and then if I find it useful another for my other lens. I’m not at this point thinking of increasing my exposure times, but there’s a lot for me to learn about what ND filters can do. - Jack

Here's a great page that illustrates what you can do with each ND filter type/strength:

Thanks.
