I just found the ND filter useful today. Was out shooting in bright light and was overexposing even at f/3.5 and 1/2000. Turned on the ND filter, and bingo, just fine. The multi-exposure mode is fine for tripod use and blurring water, etc, but not useful for hand held and hitting the limit of the shutter speed. 2/stops of ND is usually enough. Typically I have no issue with 1/8000 and f/1.4 at ISO 100, so 2 stops from the ND takes you from 1/2000 to 1/8000, so that is like having ISO 125 and 1/8000 in terms of brightness, so plenty for most.
