I've been using 84mm filters for my DSLR, but the overall size of the filter holder is too big for the compact camera. i'm thinking of getting the Lee RF75 system for my compact panasonic GF1/20mm. i dun mind paying one-off for the much smaller filter holder (95 pounds for 75mm holder and 46-75mm step-up adaptor) but i prefer a more sustainable solution for the filters itself (which can get dirty and need to be replaced). for 84mm, there is tianya. i dunno if there are alternatives for 75mm GND filters. anyone out there who may come across one?

i don't know what is the size of your filter thread. I think this Contax filter holder is 55mm but uses 75mm gelatine filters. However may not be available in GND or at least I have not seen one.
