Still ended up with a bit of a halo around the tree on the left, but overall was a decent rendition of the scene at sunrise from Grandview Overlook, GC, Aug 1st 2017.

Very nice.  I will follow your lead since I very much want t get up to these longer exposures and never have worked with ND filter in my short time in photography.  Any advice regarding handling?

Wondering if anybody tried this one https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/549036-REG/Kodak_8645541_3_x_3_Neutral.html ?

Theoretically it shouldn't impact CDAF/DPAF focusing during the day...

The link page shows a pair of sample photos that got me wondering how much this filter affects IQ.  Any thoughts?

I find very little to no effect on IQ.  But then, I only use it when I need it, and that's when without it I would not get the shot I want...

Just received mine :) Going on trip next week, hoping to get some scenery shots. I've never had anything this wide before (I have Canon 15mm 2.8 FE (which I'm planning to sell)), but it's different.

So any beginner mistakes I should avoid doing? Good tips?

Btw., first impression on receiving was totally "holy sh** it's huge!".

@ tpatana  I know the feeling.  Obviously, watch that piece of glass that sticks out!  I don't qualify to be giving advice. 

I find that objects that have a known and easily identifiable  shape in the extreme edges of photos will not present well.  Objects like rocks could be any shape so they do better.  Being so wide, everyone advises that there needs to be something interesting in the foreground and since there tends to be a lot of sky it helps if that contains clouds etc. 

I sometimes crop my wide shots more than 16:9 to look like a panorama and get rid of some earth and sky.  Like you, I'd like to hear other's comments and better still see fantastic photos.  Here is one where I thought that 11 worked but maybe not. ;)  Because the lens is good some after the fact cropping is possible.

Good to know. How do you store gels? Are they easy to scratch?

The first review @ B&H is impressive: "This stuff serves no real purpose. I am a fanatic about protecting my lenses. These filters are flimsy and wont protect against anything but light."  LOL
