With digital, you may not need your old filters. Much of the processing can be done in PS after the shot is taken. Suggested filters are a good polarizer filter and you may want to use a neutral gradient filter for landscapes.

You will have to decide, but the seem to be the primary ones for many digital shooters.

The only filter that may cause a problem is a polarising filter. I understand you need a circular polariser to prevent problems with autofocus.

Most, but not all, digitals require a 'circular' polarizer filter. My A200 works with a standard linear polarizer but I intend to purchase a circuler polarizertoensurefuture compatibility.
