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!

This step-up ring works with regular 77mm filter, but not with 77mm XUME lens adapter. When I try to screw on the XUME adapter, it kept spinning on the step-up ring. I guess thread on the step-up ring may not be cut near the front of the step-up ring. XUME lens adapter is very thin. I end up purchasing different 72mm to 77mm step-up ring at local camera shop which worked fine with XUME adapter.

      Not too much to say about it. Seems well made and it will work for my intended purpose - placing a 77mm night time hydrogen alpha filter on the end of my telescope so that it fits just inside the dew shield without falling off.

        This makes it possible for me to use a set of Hoya filters I purchased for one lens to be used on another lens. Two for the price of one!

          • Reduce Number Of Filters

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

          The construction is really good for the price, and does exactly what it says: lets you use a 77mm filter, on a 72mm Lens. Use the step-up ring on the 72mm lens and then attach a 77mm filter onto the other side of it.

          This is also useful for saving money on nice filters, buy the nice filters for your largest lens and get step-up rings to use them on smaller lenses. It also helps you reduce the number of filters you need to carry! Economical!

                    I needed a step up filter for my Kowa 12 mm lens to my 77 mm Hoya filter, both of which I use with my BMPCC. This ring was not expensive, and the fit was perfect: no rattling or difficulty screwing on and off.

                      I bought this for a beach shoot which required a cicular polarizing filter. Instead of buying 2 which are not cheap and only use rarely, I only bought one and this step up ring.

                        This is a great addition to your gear especially when you are on a budget. I just had a 77mm filter which I used with a 72mm lens with the help of this gizmo. I bought this for a beach shoot and had to use circular polarizing filter. I rarely shoot at the beach and didn't want to buy a 72mm filter which I will not often use.
