 Just picked up the zoom adapter and wide angle/ND/coloured filter sets from
a local used camera bits shop -- the zoom adapter, I can see the point of,
no problems there.

 The wide-angle adapter, again, makes sense. The coloured filters, I'm not
sure when I'd ever want to use them, but heck, they were there and I didn't
think I'd ever see them again, so what the heck.

 What are the neutral density filters for, though? Presumably it only makes
sense to use these in fully manual mode, because otherwise either the flash
(or TTL control) will try and compensate by firing the flash for longer, or
by keeping the shutter open longer -- so are they just if you want to barely
illuminate something? 

 I guess that makes sense, but I'm having a hard time imagining a picture
creation scenario that would _require_ a really wimpy flash, though. What am
I missing?
