    Preferrably I'd like a variable ND filter for the Samyang 12 f2, but I understand that those types of filters have big problems on wide angle lenses, so maybe I need a set of filters. I'm looking for something I can do 30 second eposures during the day with.

    Does anyone have any experience using this lens and some pretty intense ND filters?

    you need to find a thin nd like the one from tiffen or B+W, neither are inexpensive.

    I had this lens and I used a B+W 3.0 ND 110 Filter. It is a 10 stop filter.

    You may wish to consider the Haida Slim Pro II ND3.0
    I bought one recently for use with this lens, haven't had a chance to use it properly yet, but in a quick test it seemed fine.

    FWIW, here's the latter filter used with the Samyang on my NEX6. Not a great long exposure as it's not very long duration and over exposed (I didn't want to stop down beyond f/11), but should give some idea of the filter's performance.
