I want to begin the journey into ND filters, as I have none. I am orienting toward screw-ins, rather than a holder system. Step-up rings would allow me to use 1 size of filter on all my lenses. They would be used primarily for waterfall shots to slow the water movement. Some have suggested biting the bullet and going for a variable ND filter like a Singh-Ray, so that you can dial in (actually, twist in) the exact amount of ND you desire, from 2 stops to 8 stops. But they are $400. Others have suggested starting with a 2-stop or 3-stop filter and building a set over time.

Any points of view on either the approach (variable vs. set-building) or the brand (Singh-Ray)?
