Hi everybody

Has anyone got any experience with the screw in filters rather than the square slot in type. Any recommendations and things to avoid?

Just a suggestion but if you want a screw-in ND why not look for a vari-ND?

Hi

I use Cokin P series on most lenses but can not be bothered attaching all that kit to my little 50mm prime - so use circular screw in B+W ND4 and ND8 on this lens - they are not cheap but have always performed well.

What to avoid? Same as always - filters at a price too good to be true

No matter how many lenses I have owned - I have always needed just one more

There are always the Tiffen ones - wide range and fairly good quality (plastic lens, but OK. They may shatter under impact, but they don't break - have one to prove it when the GX10 fell after the strap failed!
See here: http://www.tiffen.com/

OTOH, I quite like the idea of the variable ones!
K-3 II, K-3 and a K-70 from SRS (having now relegated the K-30 /"K-50" to a backup body), & some Sigma and Pentax lenses (and a lot of old 35mm gear!)

I've plumped for a set of hitech filters as Teamwork photo & Digital have a offer on for 3 x Grad filters and 3 x ND filters ( both slot in type) for 100 + vat. do like the idea of the fader one though as well.
