Long exposures and polarisation are still things that digital softwares cannot replicate in post. So I see why serious landscape photographers rely heavily on filters.
This new holder leaves me somehow perplexed. All other manufacturers have changed the design of these holders with the slot in circular polarisers while Lee insists in having it mounted on the front. As a result this new holder seems to have the same identical issue of the previous old generation, i.e. unusable on fast ultra wide angle below 18mm in the 2 slots + C-Pol configuration. While others today can guarantee 3 slots + C-Pol and no vignetting on 16-35 lenses and for a cheaper price!

P Hartung: Don't expect 200ws from these. I like the form factor and their integration into the larger Godox ecosystem, but the AD360 is much more powerful for almost the same amount of money...

Can you post some links?
Two reliable sources (Flashhavoc and Petapixels) reports 1/2 to 2/3 of a stop compared to the AD360ii. Some users on POTN have showed same findings.
Petapixels has tested the AD200 against the V860ii @ 35mm and found 1.5 stops difference (3x speedlights) with bare flash. In HSS the difference will be slightly higher since strobes/speedlights power ratio increases in HSS territory.

Tests from many early users have showed results above expectations placing the AD200 between 1/2 and 2/3 stop less powerful than an AD360ii and equal to 3.5x high end speedlights. Performance in high speed sync for overheat is great and better than AD360 at equivalent power.
It seems that Godox is working on a bracket system to connect two of these which will be close to their AD600
