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.

On a Lee Foundation kit with 2 filter slots (one slot removed), you can use a full frame camera and a 16mm wide angle lens with virtually no vignette....fantastic. I can't figure out why Lee asks for double the price over their standard adapter. Regardless, it works like a charm with wide angle lenses.

The adapter attached to the lens without issues and only slightly thinner than the regular adapter. This adapter is very expensive and for that price it should be made from brass. in addition, it should have came with a bag or case. If you do decide to buy this, buy it when it is stock as it takes a while for it to come back into stock. I didn't give it higher than three stars based on a combination of price and material used to construct this adapter.

    Comments about LEE Filters Adapter Ring - 77mm - for Wide Angle Lenses:

    I have heard that other brands of adapter rings contain writing that faces the filter, causing unwanted reflections. This one puts the writing on the back and does not do that. For a crop sensor at 10mm I saw a negligible amount of vignetting from this adapter (you get that with any WA filter just at the nip of the corners, at least on my camera). So it definitely fits the bill for WA.

    Comments about LEE Filters Adapter Ring - 77mm - for Wide Angle Lenses:

    I bought this to couple with the Lee Filters Foundation kit. It allowed me to use the Filter Holder together with all my lenses having the 77mm thread.It is well built and does what is supposed to.Honestly I think all the Lee Holder and adapters are overpriced.If you plan to use the Lee Filter Holder with many lenses having different thread size, I suggest to buy the Lee Adapter Ring in the size of your bigger lens (say a 77mm thread) and then buy all the cheap Step-Up ring you need for the smaller threaded lenses (e.g. 72mm etc.).You will save a lot of money using a $ Step-Up ring instead of buying many different size of the Lee Adapter ring ;-)Please notice, if your step-up ring it's meant to work with a super wide angle lens,in order to avoid or reduce vignetting, buy the thinner type of those step-up… you'll find here on B&H too.

      Works perfectly and it is a high quality piece of equipment. However, it is overly expensive for what it is (small metal ring with some threads). No reason this should cost 3-4 times as much as those that are not for wide angles.

            I bought the Lee Filter System a while back for my 62mm lens and decided to buy a 77mm adapter for my prime lens. It fit perfectly into the holder and I have not had any issues. It's nice to easily switch out regardless of what lens I am using.

                            Although a simple adapter ring, this is a very high quality item. It's got a very solid feel in your hand and appears to be anodized so it should last a long time. It's not cheap, but I have no regrets for buying this!

                                As previously commented on, "Remove any screw-on filters before attaching this adapter. If you don't, you will have a major problem if the screw-on filter gets stuck on this adapter ring. Its recessed so there's no way to grip the stuck filter on this adapter..."
                                I tried it with a filter on just to see and yes it got stuck. With some effort a filter wrench was able to get it off however. To avoid this hastle just take any filters off before using the adaptor.

                                      What can I say, its just another adapter ring. It is nice and thick and does not feel like it is going to break. I use it mostly on a canon 17-40 and there is no interference with the picture. Took off one star because of the price :/

                                            Comments about LEE Filters Adapter Ring - 77mm - for Wide Angle Lenses:

                                            For use with Lee Foundation Kit, this is made of machined aluminum. It's designed to hold the frame for holding Lee Filters and is size specific to the lens you will be using. There is the normal and the wide angle version of this. I purchased the wide angle to minimize vignetting on wide angle lens use of the Big Stopper. Ordering is a tad confusing because to use this item you must order this adapter ring to use the Lee Filter Holders. You pay a premium for the Wide Angle version, but it really is needed. All this consists of is a threaded ring (very fine threads) and a groove for snapping the Lee Foundation Kit into.

                                                Comments about LEE Filters Adapter Ring - 77mm - for Wide Angle Lenses:

                                                Bought the 77mm & 82mm Wide Angle adapter rings to use the Foundation Kit and square filters on my 77mm filter lenses.
                                                Works great, just use care screwing on if your filter threads are plastic.

                                                Warnings
                                                Remove any screw-on filters before attaching this adapter. If you don't, you will have a major problem if the screw-on filter gets stuck on this adapter ring. Its recessed so there's no way to grip the stuck filter on this adapter.
                                                Avoid over-tightening, especially if your filter threads are plastic.

                                                Only gave it 4 stars because it is expensive for just a threaded ring.
