Hello, need recommendation regarding variable nd filters, i have never used any nd filters before and dont know which will be better for my Panasonic GH5 and PANASONIC LUMIX G LEICA 12-60MM, F2.8 , and which has better quality

I have to choose between this filters ,(price doesn't matter) no other options will be considered smiley.gif))

its good idea to choose 180$ Marumi CREATION VARI. ND2.5-ND500 ? its expensive than others it will be better in quality as well ?

Though I never tried it, the Heliopan variND seems to be the champ with almost no color shift and tack sharp.
