    Im going to get a pol-filter for two if my lenses. The 70-200VR and Tokina 12-24mm. Both 77mm. But I want also the polfilter to fit my 18-70DX and it would be great to have it on 105VR Macro lens to.

    So, the questions are:

    - What Pol filter is the "best"
    - What kind of stepup/stepdown rings do I need to dit a 77mm on a 18-70 DX lens?
    - Will i get any vignetting with step up/down rings?

    That all.

    The 18-70 has 67mm front threads and the 105 VR has 62mm threads so you will need a 62-77mm step up filter adaptor and a 67-77mm step-up ring

    As for which filter, I would recommend the Hoya Pro-1 line. With the Tokina, you are subject to vignetting if the filter is too thick. THis won't be noticeable on the other lenses which have a narrower field of view.

    I have the Hoya S-HMC CPL which works fine but it doesn't have front threads so I can't leave it on the lens and still put a lens cap on. I wish I had noticed that when I bought it.
