    This product has saved me from buying another circular polarizing filter for my wide angle lense. It makes my circular polarizing filter fit my 72mm 28-135 and my 77mm 17-40 wide angle lense. I thought I would have to buy another circular polarizing filter for my wide angle lense. The Step-down ring has saved me time and money. I don't see any vignetting in my pictures using my Canon 50D. It is great and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to use their circular polarizing filter on more one of their lenses.

      I haven't used it a ton, but from what I can tell, it works perfectly. Saving you hundreds of dollars on filters is what this does, especially handy for ND filters that you may not use that regularly.

                Threads manufactured to close tolerances. No issues engaging threads into leans or filters into step-down ring. Since there's not much difference in size between a 77 and 72mm filter I've saved money on filters without any vignetting.

                                          This product has saved me from buying another circular polarizing filter for my wide angle lense. It makes my circular polarizing filter fit my 72mm 28-135 and my 77mm 17-40 wide angle lense. I thought I would have to buy another circular polarizing filter for my wide angle lense. The Step-down ring has saved me time and money. I don't see any vignetting in my pictures using my Canon 50D. It is great and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to use their circular polarizing filter on more one of their lenses.

                                              This ring prevented me from buying another expensive circular polarizer. Money well spent.

                                                I bought this for my 24-105 and 10-22. It works great on the 24-105, but the 10-22 is to wide and I get the shaddowing in the four corners.
                                                This is not because of the adapter, just because the 10mm is so wide. I listed it incase anyone else was wondering if it works with the ef-s 10-22mm and it only works from 15mm and up.'
