I use it. I like it. Get it (but get the thin version).

If you're gonna get into filters, doing it by going top of the line right away and learning how to use it makes more sense than buying cheap then realizing you should have gone for better quality. The vari-duo is on my "next-to-buy list".

The Singh-Ray Vari-Duo ND filter is excellent. It would be a fantastic purchase for a ND filter!

You're comparing apples to oranges...the S-R Vari-N-Duo includes an integral warming polarizer, the Tiffen does not. Tiffen is towards the lower end of the spectrum when it comes to filters...

Oh... I see. Well I don't want to sacrifice sharpness. Does Singh Ray make just a variable ND?

I did a B&H search and narrowed down all the 77mm Variable ND filters. Here is the results: http://www.bhphotovide​o.com …595+4242329424+​4294955264 (external link)

Has anyone regretted buying the 77mm filter size bc it causes a hard vignette at 17mm?
Consider a larger one with a stepup filter to future proof it?
