Nice step up ring

By Barndog

from Tacoma

Comments about Sensei 52-55mm Step-Up Ring:

Bought this to allow use of 55mm filters, from film days, on current lenses that take 52mm. The low price allows use of some older expensive lenses and, saves money. The ring itself is very well made, low profile and works perfectly. Great investment.

      Comments about Sensei 52-55mm Step-Up Ring:

      I use the Sensei rings to step-up or down my infrared and ND filters. I never tighten them up much and they come off easily if you don't put a lot of pressure when removing. Even pressure gets them off every time.

      52-55mm step up ring

      By Fritz

      from Gastonia,NC

      Comments about Sensei 52-55mm Step-Up Ring:

      Needed cause most filters are 55mm,If you have lens flare use a step up ring so you can put a larger lens shade on

          Comments about Sensei 52-55mm Step-Up Ring:

          The thyreads on this ring work smoothly, the finish is fine. Since this is not made of titanuim, or stainless, I suspect you could trash it fairly easily through carelessness, but that could be said of most filters, as well. Awesome price.

            I have one old DX lens that I still use with older cameras, Nikon's famous 55-200mm workhorse - for that, even though it rarely comes out, this will be handy.

                    I have a Leica 55mm circular polarizer and I wanted to use it on my 49mm Pentax lenses, so I bought this adapter. Works just fine. I like the fact that it's made of metal. I found that if I squeeze it to hard it's difficult to unscrew. A light touch is all it takes.

                            Use these to adapt several filters to be used w/my 52mm Macro lens.
                            These filters are all from my 35mm days and useful for certain photo-art and macro work.
