So you are saying that the color filters is actually more precise than using a color head?
1 point precision is better, so you will have more accuracy with the color head. Your results will probably be a bit more repeatable with the cut filters since there is no slop in the dials. However the dichroic filters do not fade (I suspect the acetate filters do). Once you are fine tuning an image 2CC can make or break some images, so using filters that only go to 5CC increments would be very limiting.
