Personally I'd skip it.

I do like the idea of recording in two different levels simultaneously with the Tascam, but for just starting out, maybe I need to focus on deciding what are my absolute top prioriites. (e.g. a matte box is nice, but when I need the extra filters I can think about then and use whatever is available to block the glare in the meantime.)
