I'm using a step-up ring so that I only needed to buy one set of filters. I'm off to shoot a few pictures today, its sunny, and there is snow on the ground so I expect a lot of glare, so I put on my Kenko CPL filter. It is a 58mm, so I'm using a 52-58 step up ring, ... now I find none of my hoods will fit. (I only have three so there is not many to choose from).

My question: Are their hoods that fit over the lens when you have an over-sized filter on the front? I'd think it would need to be one that is flexible enough to mold to the shape of the front end of the lens.

I'm thinking better to use the polarizing filter than going with the hood and not using the filter.
