    I will refrain from rating this product any better or worse than a middle-of-the-road 3 stars until I have a better understanding of how well it will endure use.

    Previous step-up/down rings were metal. This one is either a hard plastic or carbon fiber. I am concerned that it will break easily. If it is durable, then I will probably like it better because the metal rings seemed to like to stick (I'm imagining from temperature changes or dirt in the threads).

      Comments about Tiffen 72-77mm Step-Up Ring:

      All my filters are 77mm diameter, and my new Fuji lenses have a diameter lower than that so I purchased this item. It is solid and allow me to adapt the filters nicely.

          I buy the largest filter for my largest lens and love that I don't have to spend more money on other filter. That much less to carry.

            I have a collection of 77mm filters to go with my L lenses. I picked up a Canon 18-200 for a walk-around lens. Its 72mm. The choice -- buy new polarizing, ND, graduated ND, and warming filters or buy the step up ring. Easy choice. This Tiffen ring is well constructed and holds my filters just fine. Now I have enough extra $$ to buy other photo gear....or spend on my wife on vacation!

                Buy the Heliopan version. I had to return the Tiffen and order the Heliopan version. The Tiffen is lightweight, like aluminum, while the Heliopan is like brass, substantial. The Tiffen was difficult to thread into my lens. the Heliopan verison is smooth and threads easily.

                        I have multiple lenses of different barrel sizes. I bought the step up ring so I was able to use my NDs, and other filters on most of my other lenses. The only small issue is there is a tiny amount of vignetting when all the way wide.

                            I use step-up rings so I don't have to buy different filters for each lens. This one is thiner than my previous one and the construction is much better.

                                                      I will refrain from rating this product any better or worse than a middle-of-the-road 3 stars until I have a better understanding of how well it will endure use.

                                                      Previous step-up/down rings were metal. This one is either a hard plastic or carbon fiber. I am concerned that it will break easily. If it is durable, then I will probably like it better because the metal rings seemed to like to stick (I'm imagining from temperature changes or dirt in the threads).
