With the exception of the basic UV filters that many photographers attach semi-permanently to any lens that will take them - mainly to help protect the front element of the lens from damage - these adapters make it completely pointless to buy smaller size filters of any given type. I recently decided I wanted a good dark ND filter but the cheap ones got mostly bad reviews and I have lenses of at least 3 different diameters and might want to use an ND filter on any of them. Answer - buy one filter for the widest lens you have (or are likely to have in future) and buy these adapters so that you can fit it on any other lens you have. Spend £6 on two adapters and save - in my example - well over £100 on filters.

All the adapter has to do is screw easily into the smaller lens and, in turn, have the filter screw easily into itself - and have both operations easily reversed. Though note the comment in sud's review about removing the filter in cold conditions - the adapter, being all metal, is likely to contract more than the filter, which is a metal ring round glass, making the join very tight, so it may be necessary to warm it (your hand will often be adequate) before the filter can be removed - don't force it! Cold shouldn't cause any problems in separating the adapter from the lens, though very hot conditions conceivably might.

The only other word of caution I'd add is that if the end element on the lens rotates when you focus - e.g. on the Canon 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS often supplied as a kit lens with the cheaper EOS cameras, or its telephoto brother 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS, both in their Mark I or II versions - then you won't be able to use this type of adapter with a filter that's too dark to focus through, i.e. a particularly dark ND filter. This is because if you have to focus with the filter off, screwing it on is certain to put the lens out of focus again. Although even then, I guess you could use it if focusing to infinity. Assuming the lens IS focused at infinity when it says it is, which many cheaper ones aren't.

Anyway, it works! It's made of metal and is as robust as one could expect for £3 - it shouldn't bend under normal use. There's no light leakage - particularly crucial if you're using a 10 stop ND filter and leaving the shutter open for minutes on end in bright daylight. A great and very simple product - filter manufacturers must hate them.

The original order never arrived, but the seller promtly offered to replace or reimburse me for the missing ring. As so few camera shops sell this sort of confection I was pleased to accept the replacement from the other side of the world. This cheep converter ring makes it possible for me to invest in one expensive Poleriser for my largest 77mm lens and fit it to my 52mm lenses.

it works great, filters all fit no problem, removing them can be difficult if the temperature changes, had a problem removing a 10stop ND, just couldn't get it off, until we came in out of the cold and then it removed very easily. so can't really blame the product perhaps, especially at this price but be careful of that.

having recently bought some expensive filters in 77mm, I didn't want to incur additional expense when using my 50mm f1.4 lens, so opted for the step up filter ring. It's extremely well made and does exactly what i require of it. Great quality and even better price. A winner, which ever way you look at it!

Not much to say really. It screws into my Nikon 35mm f1.8g's 52mm lens diameter perfectly and holds my Hama 77mm ND filter perfectly. Made of all metal (cold to the touch) so won't fall apart any time soon.

Does its purpose as intended. No complaints at all. This is an essential part of every photogprapher's backpack and the price is good.

Engineered badly and when raised to the supplier, they were good at reimbursing BUT and that's a deliberate capital but, at the time I bought the product the supplier didn't recognise the manufacturing fault = the screw threads were in entirely the wrong place rendering the product useless.

Good build quality, well labeled diameter printed on the outside. It works perfectly and I would trust it with a filter that weighed a kilogram!
And all this for a fantastic price.

Good. especially for the price. It works, whereas a more expensive branded version I bought had a non-functioning thread and I had to return it. So this is recommended to do the job.
