This adapter ring fits the Hitech System 100 filter holders and also the older 94mm filter holders. This adapter ring places the filter holder somewhat closer to the lens than the standard adapter ring. This is necessary for certain wide angle lenses to avoid vignetting.

            Yeah, I love it. It's just an adapter, but coupled with the Lee Big Stopper, and a 100mm hitech filter holder, it's super nice. Used with a 14mm (21mm ff eqv)for landscape and architecture. No vignetting!

              Comments about Formatt Hitech Adapter Ring for 4x4" Filter Holder - 77mm - for Wide Angle Lenses:

              This is an adapter, and as others have mentioned it's essential for the filter holder. It's very well made out of black anodized aluminium. It may be easier to scratch the finish due to being matt, however the matt black will help reduce reflections back onto the filter.However be warned that this does not fit all wide angle lens! In my case, I've tried it on three lenses I had on hand and it fits the Nikkor 17-35 f/2.8 and the 24mm tilt-shift. However it does NOT fit on the Nikkor 28-70mm f/2.8 (yes, *28*-70, not 24-70). The problem with some lenses is that the lens barrel itself prevents the adapter's threads from reaching the len's threads.I still rate highly, it's very well made and fits the wide-angle lens I do have perfectly. I just wish the manufacturer was clearer on which lenses it does fit.

                I placed this guy on my tokina 11-16mm wide angle lens. It fits comfortably. I had to use the shorter screws on the 4x4 holder though, as vignetting was apparent, even though this filter holder offsets the 4x4 closer to the lense to reduce this undesired effect.

                  Comments about Formatt Hitech Adapter Ring for 4x4" Filter Holder - 77mm - for Wide Angle Lenses:

                  I've been researching neutral density filters for a while. I recently saw an article in a photography magazine about HiTech filters. After some research, I purchased the HiTech Neutral Density Master Kit 4; the 4x4 Filter Holder (MK4) (two slots) for Wide Angle Lenses; Adapter Ring for 4x4 Filter Holder - 77mm - for Wide Angle Lenses; and the 100mm 6 Pocket Filter Wallet. After three days of shooting landscapes, I am very pleased with the products. The filter holder is solidly made and securely holds the filters. The adapter ring is also well-made. The filters have no color cast or optical distortion. The only frustration I experienced occurred when inserting the filters into the holder. If not inserted straight, the filters will jam in the holder. Simply straightening the filter solves the issue. Overall, I am very pleased with the HiTech filters and holder. These products are a valuable asset in my creative arsenal.

                  Comments about Formatt Hitech Adapter Ring for 4x4" Filter Holder - 77mm - for Wide Angle Lenses:

                  Can't use the holders without the adapter. I put the adapter on the lens staight out of the box and the thread is really tight - to the point of getting stuck.

                  A little drop of lube fixed the problem after that though...

                  Only trouble I have now is providing shade to the lens as you can't use your lens hood with these ND holders.
