          Comments about Sensei 72-77mm Step-Up Ring:

          The bigger part of my lenses has a front thread of 77mm and that's the size of all my "special effect" filters"; having the need to use them with my Canon EF 85 f1.2mkII too - which has a 72mm thread -I decided to buy this step-up ring. It work like a charm, is metal and black finish and couple smoothly with the lens front thread… I'm really happy because it make me save a lot of money, avoiding to buy a whole new set of lens filter. Thanks to the relatively thin ring and the fact that filters are larger - notice the difference between a STEP-UP and a Step-Down adapter ring - there's no vignetting and the quality of final picture is preserved.

                It does what it is suppose too. Three of my lenses are 77MM and 1 is 72mm. It saved me from buying any new ND filters. The only thing I don't like is the edge is smooth and can be tough to get your grip to unscrew from filter.

                  My filters are primarily 77mm, but not all my lenses have that diameter. This is the obvious way to address that issue.

                      It's not rocket science, it's a filter adapter. It works fine, doesn't weigh much, and screws on/off smoothly.

                                I bought a 77 mm B + W polarizer and for a few bucks I can use it with my 72mm and 62mm lens. (I also purchased a 62-77mm ring.) No need to make compromises on the quality of the filter. The ring works well.

                                    Comments about Sensei 72-77mm Step-Up Ring:

                                    I use this step-up ring to allow my 77mm ND filter to be used with BOTH my lenses. WHAT COULD POSSIBLY BE MORE AWESOME THAN THAT?????

                                    It's kind of a semi-gloss black AND IT IS PERFECTLY ROUND - ROUND I SAY!!!

                                    The only thing wrong with this filter is that it does a lousy job scooping Hagen-Dasz Coffee Ice Cream.

                                      Firstly, the ring is inexpensive and made good enough for me.
                                      Now, let me offer my best advice to avoid cross threading filters. Never screw it on with too much force use light pressure only. and, (the best for last) to help keep from cross threading filters first rotate the filter in reverse, wait for the threads to drop in place then rotate to screw on the filter. Starting in reverse will help to properly align the threads. I hope this helps!

                                                    Useful for the rokinon cine prime lenses to match filters designed for 77mm lenses.

                                                      Great quality, rigid but super thin. You barely realize it's attached.
                                                      Threads very well, almost too precise but you get the feeling that everything is secured. I'd recommend highly.

                                                          So far this step up ring seems pretty legit. Works as it should and no problems yet. I haven't had it for long so I can't comment on It's durability tho.
