    Hi, I have 77mm ND Filters and Circular Polarizing filter that I'll be using with my 12-40mm (62mm filter)

    I also have a Oly 45mm f/1.8 and Oly 25mm f/1.8 with filter sizes of 37mm and and 46mm

    Can I use a 37-->46-->77 step up rings to achieve this?

    I did look for a 37-->77 step ring however it doesn't seem to exist

    It's ok to do so, but you have to check for heavy vignetting. 37-46-77 seems the way to go. One of the disadvantages is most likely you can't put your hood on.

    I do exactly this.

    Most of my filters are 62mm to fit the Oly 12-40 and I use step down rings to make the filters fit my other m43 lenses, I've never had any problems with this setup.
