That's quite a wide variety of answers Looks like filters are possibly the most used accessory, with ND getting the most mentions.
Personally I rarely use straight ND filters, but ND grads would be the top of my list. I hadn't considered the camera bag as an accessory, but of course it is - and where would we be without them?

I don't think anyone shares my love for the Auto Extension tubes but then again that's what makes pentography so appealing - the wide variety of techniques and styles that results in a never ending stream of images on the forum

I for one enjoy what you do with tubes on a variety of lenses. I have purchased a set of tubes to experiment on my lenses ... and this is far as I have gotten! Hoping for some more amenable weather so I can get 'down and dirty' in the garden or nearby woods to see what I get with some close up photography.

Getting older and grumpier. Taking longer to decide which lens to use today.

Interesting, for filters I only use the screw on type, 49mm ND in various grades occasionally with good results but most often a CPL. I have them for most of my lenses, they are indispensable where any wet surface is concerned.

My most often used accessory is an L bracket, it really lives on my K-1ii.
I had a generic one I butchered for the purpose which worked sort of alright, Then I found a used Genesis PLL-K1 for a very good price on fleabay and it has to be my best purchase ever, well worth the money. I forget it is even on there now.
