      Comments about Sensei 58-62mm Step-Up Ring:

      This ring (with one other I bought) allows me to use my 62mm filters
      on all my lens, without having to buy expensive filters of different sizes on each of my prime lens. It work perfectly. No problems. However, if you use a step up ring in this matter, be aware that the lens shade you normally use (say 58mm) won't fit the outside edge of the 62mm filter you use. If you use the 62 mm lens shade, you get cropping of your image. This is not the fault of the step up ring, just the fault of the physics involved. On a wide angle lens the problem is solved by just not using a lens shade when you are using your filter. At least that is the solution that works for me.

          Comments about Sensei 58-62mm 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.

                Comments about Sensei 58-62mm Step-Up Ring:

                Ring fit 58mm (Sigma) lens threads perfectly, and fit 62mm filters (a Nikon standard) perfectly. Why spend three times as much? No downside that I can see.

                  I use this ring to adapt a 62mm CP filter to a 58mm lens. Step-up/step-down rings are a inexpensive, convenient way to share filters among different sized lenses.

                  It's a stepup ring. It setps up.

                      I wanted to use an existing 62MM filter with the filter adapter tube for my Canon G15. The filter adapter is 58mm, so this ring does the trick.

                        The ring works very well. It felt good while putting it on and screwed in tightly. I can't imagine spending more for a "better" ring.

                          It's a step up ring, right? It threads on nicely, stays in place, and lets me use filters with a diameter greater than the lens.
