            Easy to use. Great construction.
            I only wanted to buy one set of filters to fit all my lenses so it really helped me out.

                    I find this has made finding filters much easier. I shop around before choosing the lowest price for a filter, this has opened my options more.
                    I will occasionally have trouble taking the filters off. Other than this, I think this product's worth it.

                      Not much to say here - does exactly what it should: It fits every 52mm lens and every 58mm filter I have.

                        Comments about Sensei 52-58mm Step-Up Ring:

                        There is not a lot to write about such a simple product. It does what it is supposed to do: step a 58mm filter down to a 52mm filter ring.I have a lot of Canon FD lenses which use 52mm and the majority of my fixed EF lenses use 58mm. I carry very little because I would rather photograph than cart gear around. As such being able to use a 58mm for both old and new lenses helps a great deal. It also helps with donated or borrowed equipment.This step-up ring is as well built as a cost effective option can be but does not seem flimsy to me. It holds the filter well. I find a little oil from the body (back of the ear or side of nose) rubbed on the rings help a lot with threading and removing the filters and preventing binding. I would purchase more of these in other sizes, as needed. The product is also very lightweight. It is almost un-noticible being carried in a shirt pocket. I am very pleased.

                              I used this with my Lensbaby step up ring so I could attach a ring flash to my Lensbaby and it works great. I was surprised it was so inexpensive.

                                      Very easy to use larger filters with smaller lenses. Be careful to check if your lens has inner focus mechanism. If the front is moving the ring may prevent the lens from working properly.

                                          I needed a simple solution to using my 58mm lens hood and filters. This fit the bill perfectly. Made out of a light duty metal, it definitely feels sturdy enough to last several years of usage, while maintaing the integrity of the threads so they won't strip. Overall, a simple solution to use my 58mm accessories on my 52mm lens.

                                                      Only used it a few times so far, but it seems to be a good tool that does the job.

                                                        I use this to mount a Canon 500D acromatic closeup lens +2 to my Nikkor 55-200mm zoom. The 500D is only available in a 58mm size and the Nikkor lens has a 52mm filter size. The photos are much sharper than a standard closeup lens of 2x for lenses over 100mm. Used on a telezoom there is about 14 inches of spacing between the front of the lens and the subject. The quality is equivalent to macro extension tubes without the loss of light.
