    This is an absolutely great product. It works just as it's supposed to, never cross threads, and is very sturdy. It's made of metal, so is far more reliable then it's plastic counterparts, and I have no problems with it what so ever. I have dropped it many times, and it NEVER dents, only scratches. It is even strong enough to hold my add-on filter fisheye lens!!! There are only pros, no cons about this product. I would highly recommend it to anybody that needs one. 5*!!!

    I bought a Bower .16X fish eye from B&H. It came with 3 adapter rings none of which fit my camera so I ordered a 58-55 step down. Ironically, the adapter ring I ordered turned out to be a Bower. [...] The 3 adapter rings included with the Bower lens DID NOT have Bower printed on the ring but they were much stronger and better quality than the one marked Bower. Maybe if I didn't have the other 3 to compare to I would be satisfied but since I did, the difference was huge. Even the threads on the Bower cut into the threads of the other lens. You could see tiny pieces of metal when you removed the ring. As long as they keep selling the Bower adapter ring, I'd steer clear of buying this from B&H. [...]

    I didn't know the brand name "General" but I relied on B&H to stand behind what they sell. This ring is solid and well machined.

          I bought 55 to 58 adapter to use all my 55mm filters on my new Mamiya 80/2.8 Secor lens. This adapter fits 58mm lens threads without any difficulty and all my old filters can be attached to the adapter very easily without any forcing and 55mm filters do not create any vignetting on the 120 film.

                        Threads work well when attaching to lens and it serves its purpose well. However, be aware of possible vignetting at wide angle focal lengths.
