I have several UV and CPs that I'll be putting up for sale when I get home (Saturday). IIRC, the sizes are 67mm. All you'd need is a adapter ring (~$5). They are Hoya and Promaster and served me well.

lens hoods are generally useless.
Gonna have to disagree with you on that. The contrast and color improves with many shots by using a lens hood. Shoot with the sun behind you and they aren't as useful. Shoot within 90 degrees of the sun and you'll see benefits.

I've got:

Tiffen 67mm Circular Polarizer
Tiffen 67mm UV Protector
Hoya 67mm UV (0)
??? 62mm to 67 mm step-up ring.

It's a cokin 58mm. I picked it up at Best Buy earlier this spring for about $35. It does a decent job.

The other disadvantage to using a step down ring is if you to decide to shoot with a lens hood while you are using a CP, the lens hood will not fit over the ring. Just think about what your applications will be and you can decide which is better for you.

definitely depends a LOT on the lens. on some lenses it really does make no difference unless the sun is directly striking the front element.
