    Works as described

    By WarrenT

    from Gunnison, CO

    Comments about LEE Filters 105mm Accessory Front Thread Adapter Ring:

    The adapter ring is needed to allow you to us the LEE 105mm polarizer in front of the LEE filter system. If you do any landscape photography, you know useful a polarizer filter is. By using this adapter ring with a 105mm polarizer and the wide angle filter adapter ring you can use the LEE filter system with polarizer up to 16mm/17mm without any vignetting. This works better than screwing the filter system into a polarizer the is attached to the lens. A little pricey, but well made just like the rest of the LEE filter system.

    Comments about LEE Filters 105mm Accessory Front Thread Adapter Ring:

    You have to purchase this item in order to use the 105mm polarizer. When using this item with the wide angle hood make sure to mount it level and do not over tighten. Must mount filter in the horizontal position to be able to mount it correctly and not cross thread.

    Comments about LEE Filters 105mm Accessory Front Thread Adapter Ring:

    I just received the product around 2 weeks ago. It works as it should...nothing special about an adapter ring. It's well made. My only complaint is how expensive it is. I think it should cost 1/2 of what it does.

    This adaptor allows the use of the Lee circular polarizer with the Lee Filter System. If you do any landscape photography you already know how useful a tool Polarizing Filters are to your work. It went together with the Lee system easily. Nothing negative to report.

    No issues installing. I just wished the polarizer I bought to mount on it had worked as well.

        Comments about LEE Filters 105mm Accessory Front Thread Adapter Ring:

        Works as expected. Of course, pricey, like all components of the entire Lee system.

        When mounting the ring, you must remove the top layer of the existing filter holder mount - otherwise the screws don't go deep enough.

        Comments about LEE Filters 105mm Accessory Front Thread Adapter Ring:

        Bought this to attach my B+W 105mm Polarizer to the Lee Foundation Filter System. Strong construction, smooth attachment of filter, however the thread of the ring is a bit too thin to attach the filter fully to the ring.
        Used 5/8 in screws to attach it to the LEE Filter System with two slots.
        4 Stars because of the price.

                The perfect device for use with the Lee Filter Holder and 105 mm filter up front. I have two. One for the Lee 2mm holder and one for the Schneider 4mm holder. The only problem is the cost. Much too expensive for a metal ring.

                    This is for the 105mm polarizer, used in conjunction with ND Grad filters. Having the polarizer out front is best, and all functions and adjustments are easy with the Lee System.

                            This is a screw in adapter. you need to unscrew filter holder slots, attach the adapter and put the the screws back in. very straight forward
                            Things that are great about it
                            Easy to use and it does what it is supposed to do
                            Things that aren't so great about it
                            Bit expensive and hard to get.

                                    I got this so I could use a polarizer with my foundation kit. It works. 4 stars because of the price!

                                      What can I say, Another Outstanding product from Lee. Fit and finish are perfect. I just recently converted from Cokin Z-Pro to the Lee 4x6 system and boy am I glad I did. Cokin is good, but the intire line of Lee products are far superior in design, build quality, ease of use, and the end result being your photo of course. Cokin uses a proprietary round Polariser at the back of the holder, behind the square filters making it difficult to rotate it. With the Lee system, thanks to this 105mm ring it puts your Polariser in front of your square filters which makes access very easy plus you can put any brand of filter in front rather than being forced to use only one type such as with the Cokin. Lee products may cost a little more, but you get what you pay for and for my money I`ll take Lee.
