Just a small note about filter diameters. There are limits in what is usually offered. Each manufacturer favors certain sizes and tries to maintain some standard so people don't have to buy too many different filter sizes.

Canon uses 52, 58, (any 6x ?), 72, 77, now 82mm.

There are a few 67 mm (70-200 f/4, 18-135 come to mind). I think the old 24-85 was a funny diameter also (62?)
