Does exactly what one would expect.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: NEEWER62-77mm 62MM to 77MM Step Up Ring Filter Adapter Ring (Electronics)
This isn't an item that can be greatly reviewed except to say it does exactly what you'd expect it to. However I will review this by passing on some advice.
So many people will look at their lens collection and buy filters to match the size of their kit. Now, usually this starts for the beginner by getting the same size as their kit lens, but if you're seriously interested in photography don't make this mistake. Look through a list of lenses you're likely to buy (or would like to try) in the future and buy your filters according to the largest diameter lens. For the rest, spend a far lower amount of money getting step-up or step-down rings to make the filter fit your lenses. You can pay anything from 30 pounds plus on a reasonable filter - much more if you want the high quality glass - so it's much more sensible to spend the extra cash on the glass (and look after it) and not having to duplicate when you want to use the same effect on differing focal ranges. The step rings are far far cheaper and give all of your equipment access to the same filters.
As for this product? Well, it's cheap but works incredibly well.

A complaint often made against cheap step up rings is that they can stick to the filter and be damaged getting them apart. One tip that I heard about was to rub a finger along a side of the nose and then across the threads.The narural skin oil then lubricates the threads. It does seem to work.

Whilst this is basically good advice it's worth also pointing out that if you need to use multiple step-up rings, say to get from 52 > 77 mm, there's a danger of moving the filter quite a long way out from the front element. This is a Bad Thing. Try to use a single ring - ie a 52-77mm adapter in the above example.
