                It seems to be well made and works well. I bought this to try to use a 77mm singh ray vari duo filter on an 82mm wide angle Ziess 21mm lens but unfortunately the lens vignettes pretty badly. This is by no means a fault of the step down ring. It has a thin profile. Be careful not to overtighten it can be pretty tight getting your fingers into the threads to remove the filter.

                      I have 3 lenses I mainly use. (2 are 77mm and 1 is 82mm) Too buy both size filters would cost a lot. I used the ring with 2 filters stacked and had no vegetation. The only problem I can see with it is that it smooth and can be hard to grip if too tight.

                          I use this step-down ring on my tilt-shift lens with the expensive 77mm filters I already had gotten for my telephoto lenses. It works with no vignetting on my camera (1.3 crop factor). Simple, inexpensive and it works.

                            I have a Nikon 300mm f/4 telephoto lens, which has a 82mm front thread. I have a very expensive set of 77mm Tiffen Water White ND, and thought I'd try on my 300 with this step-down ring. My fear was that it would vignette the lens. But it worked flawlessly, no vignetting visible, at least at smaller apertures, which is where I want to be shooting at anyway when I've got ND on. A great solution.

                                There are run and gun filming moments that you will want a; Steadicam shot with ND filters on a 18mm lens with out having to rent a very expensive rig.

                                This is what I use the step down ring with: 7D on a Steadicam Merlin with a 18mm f3.5 Zeiss, a 77mm ND fadder filter fitted with the 82mm-77mm step down ring. There is no vignetting if you use the 7D.

                                    This is a perfect product. It's round, it's got threads and it is built tough. The round part is the important part - or they couldn't even call it a ring. I'd recoment it to my friends.
