    I purchase this with a 77mm B+W MRC circular polarizer. I was thinking that a cheap stepping ring could sufficiently hold up my kit lens until I got a 2.8 zoom that has native 77mm filter thread.

    However compare to the <3$ (include ship) ones online, the surface finish of this adapter uses paint instead of powder coat or cheap anodizing process.

    This post risk of easily binding to both the host lens and the filter, as those paint compress/bent and fall off easily. It also make the surface sticker than regular powder/anodize version of this.

    I would suggest B&H switch to other cheap stepping rings that are both cheaper and have better surface finish. For those who interesting in this, if what you receive is "Bower" brand then be careful about the binding effect of the ring.

    Too much vignetting

        Comments about General Brand 72-77mm Step-Up Ring:

        I wanted to use this ring on a Nikon 18-200 mm, to save money from buying 72mm filters.

        The end results is that I still ended up purchasing theses size filters anyway, as this ring creates too much vignetting while using my polarizer. Although I had read about it, I thought that it would not be a big deal, as I create often vignetting with my own pictures.

        What I forgot to realize however, is that there is a big difference between the vignetting I create, and the one I am forced to work with from this ring!

        I will not bother with such gimming in the future, and instead, will suck it up and buy filters with the right size instead.

                Does what it should, metal construction, good threads & original Nikon Lens Cap will still fit when filter not fitted to ring.

                I only buy filters for my biggest diameter lens and use these step up rings to fit these filters to all my smaller lenses.

                                    For the price, this is fine. Bear in mind that it won't be as durable as main-brand alternatives like the B+W products, but it will last a long time if you treat it with care.

                                          Bought this to be able to use my nd filter on my new lens and my old standard. It does exactly what I wanted it to do.

                                            I use this to attach my 77mm ND Filters to my Canon 50mm 1.2 lens. Works great.

                                                This is a very cost effective way to use my 77mm filters on a 72mm lens. I see some people have a problem threading this to their lenses. The problem is not with the lens or the step up ring.

                                                  This ring is to put a 77mm filter on a lens with 72mm threads.

                                                  It works very well, and is very lightweight.

                                                    This step up ring allows you to purchase 1 filter for the largest lense you have, and use it on multiple other lenses. Just as a technique note, when using a step up ring on any type of filter that requires you to adjust it by turning it, always turn it clockwise on the lens. If you have any luck like mine, you will be screwing it off as you are adjusting for the perfect shot at an overlook that will undoubtedly allow for gravity to do its part to help you order another filter.

                                                      I own lenses with 72mm and 77mm filter threads. With this adapter I can move my filters to and from any lense. No need to buy filters for both. This saves $.
