          Great step-up ring. Works perfectly with my 77mm Tiffen variable ND filter and my Nikon 35mm f/1.8G AF-S DX lens. Great build quality and easy to use.

            Must have in every photographers kit.
            Unless you need to constantly changes lenses on the fly and in a hurry, this kind of item can save you lots of money, by not having to buy a filter (other than UV and/or polarizer) for each lens that you use.

            For example, I enjoy close up photography, I bought a close up filter kit for my lens with the largest diameter, and step up rings for all of my smaller lenses. Saving quite a bit of money, space and weight in the bag.

                It's a step-up ring, not much that can go wrong. I got it for my CPL and it is working as intended. It's made from metal and not from plastic. No difficulties unscrewing the step-up ring from the camera thread or the filter from the ring.

Can't go wrong with Sensei it's my first time making this purchase and I made a great choice. It's metal and it will last it works great like the description says it does.

                                    Comments about Sensei 52-77mm Step-Up Ring:

                                    I use this on two 52mm lens. Great tool for minimizing the amount of filters you carry.

                                    The good:
                                    1) I can utilize my 77mm Circular Polarizer and a 77mm ND filter on any of my 52mm lenses and even stack the two filters without vignetting.

                                    2) It works well on the wide angle so I don't have my fingers blocking out the view while turning the CPL filter adjustment ring. And it cuts out any vignetting on the wide angle zoom.

                                    HOWEVER... The down side:
                                    1) you will need a 77mm screw on lens hood if you want to shade out glare. Those pedal types that attach to the outer barrel of the 52mm lens will not fit around the huge 77mm filter and step-up ring.

                                    2) If you stack a polarizer it will likely get stuck on the adapter ring or other filter you use. So a pair of filter wrenches are essential so you don't force or bend the soft alloy step-up adapter ring or the filter when they get stuck.

                                    So, if you already have good 52mm filters and don't want the hassle of messing with stuck filters, and the additional process of screwing on a after market lens hood to the filter, this product would be just be a waste of your time.

                                    However, if you want to use your 77mm filters, and don't mind the extra steps involved in attaching the adapter step-up ring, and screw on aftermarket lens hood, this product may be for you. Also, if you want to explore variations of filter stacking without vignetting, this product may be for you.

                                    I only recommend this product to those that are willing to deal with the bad to get results for the good.

                                      Good price, and good fit. I use this to go from my Nikon 24mm 2.8 Ai-S to a 77mm Tiffen Variable ND and it does the trick.

                                      Tastefully presented in an unassuming satin black, don't let the modest appearance put you off. Beneath the surface is a powerhouse of function and usefulness. Not only does it attach flawlessly to a 52mm lens thread but it also allows you to mount 77mm filters with ease. That is definitely a step up.

                                        I need to use my 77mm filter on 52mm fix lenses. This is just perfect for the price. It works perfectly for me.

                                          This was a low cost solution to be able to use my larger filters on lenses that have a smaller filter size. It works well for that purpose.

                                                The threads don't feel perfectly smooth on either side, so use it very gently. Other than that, it does what it's supposed to do, and you can't ask for much more than that.

                                                    This works perfect. I only wanted to buy one set of filters, so I needed a few of these to use them on all my lens. Easy to put on. Sometimes I put the filter on too tight, and it's hard to remove without taking the Step-up ring off as well. I don't know if there is any way to avoid this. The problem happens with my graduated filter and polarizer. When I turn them, it tightens the filter to the ring. Saves me a ton on filters.
