    Buy any brand! Doesn't matter a whit! You probably would not get a 55-77 in which case you will have to buy 2 like 55-67 and 67-77.

    will stacking 2 step up rings in this case have any effect on the photos?

    Get the 77mm size filter and 55-77mm step up ring, because step up ring is always cheaper than filters and you can't use 55mm filter for 77mm lens.......
