SX 50 Adpater Ring: 58mm or 67mm? Advice Please

I notice Canon suggests a 67mm adapter ring for use with filters & other attachments. However, I  see  people often use the 58mm adapter ring setup instead. I have some questions for all of you who have been through this:

1) I understand the 58mm allows for use of less expensive filters, but does it come @ a cost with vignetting?

2) Besides cost for filters, is there any other reason why people are using the 58mm adapter instead of Canon's recommended 67mm adapter?

3) Finally, since I need a hood, adapter, filters and extra batteries, can anyone suggest a good seller for this type of kit?
