Can I use same filter for Canon 17-40mm and a Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 (non IS/IS II). Now I'm having Canon 17-40mm and in future I may purchase a Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 (non IS/IS II). I will lost many money when buy 2 filters for two lenses. So, can I use same filter (probably I may buy a used B&W 77mm filter) for Canon 17-40mm and Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 (non IS/IS II)?

Yes, it will work on both. The filter thread size is 77mm. Make sure you buy a 77mm filter.

Does the 110USD B & W 77mm filter (about 75-90USD used) degrade image quality?

Maybe have a look at this https://photography-on-the.net …/showthread.php​?t=1087224 which shows a comparison of a number of different 77mm filters or even this https://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthre​ad.php?t=807555 which is a sticky at the top of this forum that also explains filters and their impact on quality.

ANY extra piece of glass between what you are taking an image of and what you are recording that image has the potential to degrade image quality by varying degrees depending upon a whole range of conditions.

The question is whether or not it is noticeable to your eyes.

If you are really concerned about damaging your front elements it could be false economy to share one filter over two lenses as every time you change lens you will be changing filter...adding to the danger of damaging one of the lenses in the process.


A coupla bodies and a few lenses

Also keep in mind to minimize vignetting on your 17-40, so buying a thin filter will be most senseful.
