It's usually step up to go from a smaller lens to a bigger filter. Like a 77 or 82 on that 67. The problem though is that sometimes with very wide angle lenses that can mean vignetting. If the filter is quality it shouldn't matter IQ wise that it's bigger. But note that CPLs on say wide lenses have issues.

If a lens has vignetting issues with a step-up ring, that means it will also show vignetting with a direct screw-on filter.
