This adapter ring fits the Lee 4" (100mm) 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.

      This is what it is. If you have the Lee filter holder and a 72mm wide angle, you need this. It's perfectly made. There's nothing else to say.

          Comments about LEE Filters Adapter Ring - 72mm - for Wide Angle Lenses:

          Lee is one of if not the best in terms of filters. The design of their wide angle adapter rings is outstanding. If you use the leaf filter system you need a few of these in the sizes for the lenses that you're going to use. Just get the appropriate ones that you need. If you're not using wide angle lenses perhaps get the regular ones due to the lower cost.

              Comments about LEE Filters Adapter Ring - 72mm - for Wide Angle Lenses:

              Works as it should. It screws into the inside threads on the front of the lens, which wasn't clear when I ordered it. I really like the interface between this and the foundation. Be careful not to screw it on too tight, especially if you screw it into another filter.

                Bit on the costly side still for a metal ring...

                Comments about LEE Filters Adapter Ring - 72mm - for Wide Angle Lenses:

                I have a Lee system and am happy with the quality of it. I got a new lens in a much larger size than I had previously owned and needed the larger ring. I generally feel like the build quality of the genuine Lee accessories is high, though for these adapter rings the price is maybe a bit steep, despite the fit and finish.

                    I bought the Lee 72MM Wide Adapter ring, 100MM Big Stopper, to use with my Sony A7M2 combined with s Sony 16-35MM F4 lens.

                    This adapter when used brings the filter holder extremely close to the lens. It MUST be used alone with no other filters on the lens, or vignetting will occur at 16MM.

                    Very nicely made, works well and does what it says on the tin. Little bit heavy and seems a bit expensive for what it is, especially compared to the non-WA version, but if you need it...

                          It's an adapter ring. It works. It's metal. It's way over-priced! And since I have the Lee filter system and lenses with 72mm filter sizes, I need it. That's it - nothing else to say.

                                I'm a long-time user of the Lee system and have items from the last century that you just can't get anymore which is to say, the system is built to last and these rings are no exception. It feels solid in your hand and threads on easily.

                                If you like to shoot wide, and I do, then these W/A rings are a must.

                                          Comments about LEE Filters Adapter Ring - 72mm - for Wide Angle Lenses:

                                          I already have 82mm and 77mm Lee wide angle adapter ring, and just bought the 72mm ring for my other two lenses. The adpter ring is in very good quality, and matches perfect with the Lee foundation filter holder. I'll give 5 stars for the construction of the ring. However, the price is too high considering it's just a metal adapter ring.

                                            It serves its purpose, no vignette at 24mm. Great quality, will last long time. Minus one star for its price.

                                                Comments about LEE Filters Adapter Ring - 72mm - for Wide Angle Lenses:

                                                There are two types of Lee adapter rings: aluminum and a sort of fibrous plastic. The aluminum, aka "wide angle," are far better regardless of whether you put it on a wide angle lens or not for the simple reason that they are machined better and actually work with Lee attachments as opposed to the plastic variety which barely work or don't work at all and will need to be returned. Why? The plastic ones outer flange is about one millimeter too big!

                                                The plastic ones have one advantage: a spring-loaded lens cap which fits on the filter threads of any given lens will also fit on the inside of a Lee plastic adapter of the same size. With the wide angle Lee adapter such a lens cap may or may not fit depending on its depth.

                                                So if this were a review of the plastic Lee adapter I would give it one star only.
