Option C: lens > step up ring > CPL filter > two or 3 52mm whatever-is-cheapest filters with the glass removed. It works well, is inexpensive with the right sources, is very compact, and will double as a nice big ring to rotate your polarizer.

Thanks for the reply!

Unfortunately a step-up ring is a fraction of the cost of a new filter. That's why i'm trying to find a solution to use the filter I already own, instead of buying one to use just for a single lens.

Problem is what lens hood will I be able to mount together with the CPL ring, since this filter needs to be able to rotate after all.
I just ordered it's brother 35 macro with Hoya filter kit from B&H 49mm ND, cp, & uv filters for $37 US .
