Somebody on here offered the advice that when it comes to photography gear, "If you don't know that you need it, then you probably don't." Well, I just learned what ND and GND filters do, and now I NEED both. :-) My problem is... there are so many options out there I'm hoping somebody can steer me in the right direction and tell me, "Get this, it's what you need."

GND Filter: Looking for a 0.6 size because that sounds like it is the best for a variety of conditions (unless I'm told otherwise). I will be fitting it to a Canon 40d w/ Canon 17-55mm f/2.8 IS lens with a 77mm filter size. Most GND's seem to be the square type filter... though I doubt I would be changing filters often, what are your thoughts on round GND's?

ND Filter: I really want one that will be able to slow down shutter speeds a lot during the daytime... like 20 seconds or longer. I'm thinking a 3.0 will do the trick, and am looking at the B+W 77mm Model #110 circular ND filter.

Any recommendations or advice? Thanks in advance.
