      My largest/most popular lens is 82mm & I've spent a lot of money getting filters for it. So I have purchased the filter step-up rings for all my other lenses so I can use the same filters with all of them-definitely justifing the cost of the filters themselves. The step-up rings are so easy to use & having them for all my lenses means that I do not have to carry or purchase the same filters over and over again for each individual lens that I own & I do not have to store a ton of filters while not in use. The step-up rings are cool little tools!

      I use this as a step up ring for a circular polarizer and an ND Filter. I'm not happy with this ring at all. It cross threads super easily and is so hard to get a firm mount with. Spend the extra bucks and get the B+W step up ring. You don't want to cross thread your filter mounts.

            It was defective (bad threads) which I half expected, got one for 3 or 4 times as much. Now I won't be worried about it locking up on a good filter.

                          Comments about General Brand 72-82mm Step-Up Ring:

                          I used this product to connect my Letus Extreme with HVX200A Optimization to my Panasonic HPX170. Because of the ring size difference between the HVX200A and the HPX170, I HAD to have this little ring. The size of the ring did not alter the focus for the Letus system at all and works just like it's supposed to.

                          Pros: Does what it is supposed to. Connects an accessory that requires an 82mm thread to a 72mm camera thread.

                          Cons: Kind of cheap in build quality. It'll scratch or flake when you rub it against something and it feels too light. Hard to screw on at first sometimes.

                                  Title pretty much explains it. I would opt to buy a little more expensive one, if I could do it again. The threads chip off when using.

                                      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.
