ND filter for what lens?

(I posted this in the Canon SLR lens section, but am getting no response, so trying again here).

I ordered a 72mm Hoya 10-stop ND filter a few weeks ago for my 50mm f/1.2 lens, and it is on back-order (2-4 weeks away).  But, now I have acquired a Tamron 17-35, which I suspect is what I'll mostly be using an ND filter with (waterfalls, ocean shores).

So should I cancel the one for the 50mm and just get a nice B+W (77mm) for the 17-35, or would I wind-up finding that I'd want one for that particular 50mm lens anyway?

Don't want to spend more than necessary.
