    I didn't quite catch what he was saying at first either. He means you attach a rubber hood to the 77mm CPL, then that becomes the hood for the smaller lenses when you put it on them. I assume there is a good chance that 77mm rubber hood would obstruct the 70-200mm's attached lens hood, but I am not sure.

    That's why you screw it off and on. Indeed, the 70-200's flower-petal lens hood is far superior to the rubber hood. Heck, it was designed for the lens!

    I haven't thought of a hood, although I remember don recommending one. Too expensive for a hood, damn.... I'll deal with a flare if it comes, but I will be careful.

    But a 77mm multi-coated (HOYA) CPL with a 49mm to 77mm step ring set would be good.

    49mm for your 50mm F/1.7 (although will probably vignette a bit due to the "hood" of the rings .

    Got a 49mm CPL on my 50MM and a uv filter so I am good there, Need to go check and see what MM optic the Tamron 200-500 has.

    Sean, that would be ... 86mm

    Ryan ... a general rubber lens hood (<- click here) is only around $10. Knock off a lunch or two, you can afford it.

    Also, read through this older post concerning filters and step-rings (<- click here), from last August, I think. I believe you will find it familiar and right on topic (especially the last page).

    That is a REALLY BIG piece of glass. Geez. You know, it kinda doesn't make a hell of a lot of sense for a good CPL or UV filter to cost way more than a nice set of eyeglasses with all sorts of fancy coatings.

    Jason,

    You want to have some fun ... try fielding the cost of a 300mm f/2.8 lens. Now, that's a real bargain. NOT!

    I wonder how much this will go for?

    And 112mm filter.... whoo, don't even want to think about it.
