For 52mm I'd use an "A" style. Anything over 55mm, I use the P primarily. I also have a set of 4x4's for my large format work as well.

I use the 52mm Cokin "A" series filter holder for my Nikon, very efficient, and changing filters is a breeze.

And although I realize it's still 35mm film, this topic probably belongs in a non-cinema forum.
