I had slight reservations about this step-up ring; mainly that it might be made of plastic. But, my fears were unjustified: it's a "Bower" brand step-up ring made of metal (aluminum, I think).

I don't know if it's supposed to be a "slim" model, but it is otherwise unobtrusive and causes no vignetting.

It attaches to both the lens and to filters without any binding or alignment problems.

I gave it four stars because I'm not sure it's as strongly-constructed as it could be, but I have no way to confirm this and I don't think I'm going to try and break it :)

Overall, though, don't worry about it; take decent care of it, as you would any piece of photo gear, and it should be just fine.

Decent

Doesn't feel super sturdy, feels cheap. But it serves the purpose. Threading looked a little worn but I have a feeling it was the manufacturing.

        Comments about General Brand 52-77mm Step-Up Ring:

        Good price. Threads seem clean so mounts easily and takes expensive filters without damaging the threads. Has a flimsy feel because of the large step but needs to be thin to prevent vignetting. Just handle carefully until a filter is mounted then no problem. For what it is, it does what it is suppose to do without any problems.

            bought this to attach 77mm ND filter to canon 50mm f/1.8. it's difficult to turn the focus ring with the adapter attached. of course this is not the fault of the step-up ring, rather the design of the 50mm f/1.8.

                  Does what it should, well constructed, metal.

                  I only purchase filters for my largest dismeter lens and use these step-up rings to mount these filters to my smaller lenses.

                      Got this with my ND filter. Save a lot of money as I can use just one filter and use on my smaller lenses. Threads are well machined. Filter screws in smoothly and fits to lens filter ring without binding.

                        Well, it's a step up ring and it does the job it was intended to do. These general brand aluminum ones (often Bower brand) work just fine. These are a little more light weight but if you take care of your gear then they should last just as long as the heavier duty brass rings from some of the other brands. If you need something with a little more strength or your gear takes some abuse, then these may bend or warp easily, but for 95% of photographers these should be more than sufficient.

                            This fits well and seems sturdy enough. I had no troubles getting it on or off. I buy all my filters at 77mm and then I only have to have this one converter.

                                    I just started using this accessory, but for an inexpensive ring, it seems to work well. Doesn't appear to be sturdy enough to withstand any abuse but it attached well to my lens and smoothly accepted filters.

                                                Not much to say. It lets me use 77mm filters on my lenses with 52mm threads. Made of metal, seems sturdy. Works as it should.

                                                lets you use 77mm filters on 52mm threads. I understand this is just a piece of thin metal, but the build quality, mainly the quality of the threads is low. Filters often get stuck to it and it doesn't turn smoothly into filter threads of lenses. This is a little worrisome as some lenses have plastic threads and i would not want to wear them out with a $5 step up ring.

                                                    It simply does exactly what it's meant to do. Nothing more, nothing less. Holds on tight to my 52mm lens end, and on my filter. Only reason I did not give it 5 out of 5 stars is b/c my 72mm tiffen ND filter can not screw all the way in for whatever reason. There is a tiny TINY space between. Maybe that's meant to be there, I don't really know. But I trust that it's screwed in tightly enough to go about my shooting. Otherwise I love this adaptor. Much cheaper than having to buy a whole new filter size.
