I tried this on another lens and found the lens hood couldn't be removed without removing the filter. I ditched the step-up and got another set of filters
yea, i thought about that.. i'm still trying to figure out how much of an issue it will be as i won't have the filters on my primes all that often. it's more or less an option i want when i'm packing light and will probably be carrying the 24L, 35L, and 85L while leaving my zooms at home.

The above is precisely why I wouldn't even dream of using step-up rings. I always use a lens hood and would not do anything that would prevent that from being possible.
yea, i religiously use lens hoods too, but if you think about it, you can't use hoods with a CPL anyways. unless there's a massive threat of flare, adjusting a CPL and then mounting the hood before taking a shot is just too much trouble for me most of the time. using a circular polarizer is the only time i really shoot without a hood because it's too much hassle to make adjustments. if you have a technique that allows you the ability to manipulate a CPL with the 24-70, 70-200, etc hood attached, i'd love to learn.
thanks for the input everyone. if anybody out there has any other opinions, i'd really appreciate some more words of wisdom!
