      Comments about General Brand 52-55mm Step-Up Ring:

      I bought the step-up ring to have access to some archaic filters from an old Minolta that's gathering dust in my closet. I don't know that I'll use them, but for $ how can I go wrong?Unlike the Coken adapters which are often frustrating to install on my lenses, this glides onto my 52mm lenses like they were soaked in butter fat without the mess. The only downside of the step-up ring, unfortunately, was that the winning lottery ticket numbers were not engraved on the ring.

        The step up ring was very easy to install and seemed very durable. This adapter ring will allow me to use old filters on my current 18-50mm lens and will save lots of money from not having to buy new filters.

            I ordered 52mm - 55mm & 55mm-52mm step-up &down rings.
            Very nice rings good weight , didnt go out of round when I dropped it the other day. Use with filters mainly. Had a set of rings, filters & other gear stolden by the TSA while I was in line. Reason for buying this product I had to replaced.

                  I use this to step up from a 52mm filter thread on a Nikon lens to a 55mm close up filter set I have from my Sony days. The threads were perfect with no burrs at all. I have also used a Bower 49mm to 55mm step up ring and have absolutely no complaints. Excellent product that provides an inexpensive way to use filters on multiple lenses.

                      Comments about General Brand 52-55mm Step-Up Ring:

                      A thread adapter ring, with a female 55mm thread and a male 52mm thread; this ring allowed me to use my Panasonic DMW-LT55 telephoto attachment (X 1.7) and my Panasonic DMW-LW55 wide angle attachment (X 0.7) (these I'd previously purchased for use with my Lumix FZ30) on my new Lumix LX5. These were expensive attachments, and purchasing this inexpensive step-up ring keeps them useful on a new camera - Great!

                      I've had no negatives with this ring and don't expect to have any in the future - it fits, and it does its job.

                                        from a previous film camera to fit a new digital lens. The ring is much less expensive than a new set of filters!

                                            This filter step-up ring was just what I needed to swap some hard-to-find filters between lenses that are so close in filter size, yet not quite close enough without the step-up ring. Very helpful little tool.

                                                Nothing special, and it shouldn't be. It's only a step up ring. But it gets the job done well, and I don't ever feel like it's gonna break. I got it to step up so I can add a DIY ring light and it's working fine.
