Will 77mm step-up ring fit on 70-200mm f/4 IS w/hood?

When thinking of getting a 70-200mm f/4 IS, I don't think I want to spend another $100+ for a CPL. If possible, I'd rather get a 67mm to 77mm step-up ring, and re-use my 77mm filters. Of course, my concern now then is, will the hood fit, with 67->77mm step-up ring in place??

Has anyone tried this yet?

Doesn't work for the 70-200 F4 non-IS lens. I find it kind of a pain to use a lens hood with a polarizer anyway. It's impossible to get your hand in to adjust the filter. I tried the "sharing the filters thing". I found it much to time wasting to try and get a filter off one lens and on to the other in the field. Now I have polarizers for each size lens I have.

I guess that may have to be the overhead I must eat, for having lenses with multiple filter sizes...

One thing that I forgot to mention. I do have a set of grad ND filters. For that purpose, I have the appropriate step up rings to fit the 77mm size. Then I'm just carrying rings and the 77mm holder.

And on my 72mm lens, I also permanantly keep a 72-77 ring on it because the hood will fit over that ring and I can use my 77mm polarizer on that lens.

Alas, no it won't work. This is my setup right now, and when I'm using my polarizer, I can't use my hood. (I bought a really good polarizer to share with my 17-55).

I just use the step-up ring and shade my filter with my hat. Simple.
