I'm not sure why I can't figure this out, so maybe someone can help me? I have both the 24-105 f4L (77mm), and 70-200 f4L (67mm) lenses. I would like to order a Hitech 85/P Gradual ND Filter Package from 2filter.com , but I cannot seem to figure out which one will work on both lenses, or what else I need to order to make the kit work for both? Any help would be appreciated. Thank You.

You will need a set with a 77mm Cokin P adapter ring + you will need an additional 67mm adapter ring to mount the filter holder onto your 70-200mm lens. The adapter ring is just a few $. I'm not 100% sure, but imho Cokin P filter holder may cause vignetting at 24mm zoom setting.

With my 24-105 Canon I usually get a little vignetting at the 24mm setting, if I was starting from scratch I would look at Z-Pro series rather than P series as it would give more options.

Thanks, I got it figured out. I went with the Z-Pro. One more question though, will this work with a screw-in filter already attached to the lens?

This will work, but you will get more vignetting.

Even with a low profile filter? My intention was to use a screw-in polorizer in combination with the Grad ND filter.
