Thank you for that clarification.

I definitely do NOT want to buy multiple filters for each lens, which will vary from Canon to Leica to Rokinon. Is the idea that I buy step up filter rings to get me to 77mm so that I may use just one set?
The step down rings don't have anything to do with filters, they have to do with getting a tight fit around your lens so no light gets through.
Sorry, I'm talking about getting all my different lenses up to a single standard, which I assumed was 77mm - is this the way to go? Then I would go with something like this, assuming it will allow for a lens as wide as the Tokina 11-16mm.

I have a bunch of step up/down rings. All start at 77mm and work down for all lenses I own. They’re so much cheaper than trying to buy a filter for every lens you own.
As for a mattebox. If you use cine lenses then you need a mattebox. No other way to add filters. How can you open the lens up on a sunny day without adding ND filters?
Likewise I have everything stepped up or down to 77mm for my screw ins.
They're cheap as chips and you can usually get free shipping on Chinese/Honk kong ones and they work completely fine in my experience.
