    Buy both sizes if you have the budget. If not buy for the lens you use most frequently first, then get the other once you have the money.

    That means you will only buy 1 now.

    Do you like to shoot between 50-70mm? Or, do you hell like landscaping?

    If you feel that you will be using CPL on different diameter lenses, you can consider Cokin filter - the slide in filter vs the screw-in ones such as B+W or Hoya
