              Basic tool allowing a larger filter to be used on smaller mm lens. Allows a specialty filter to be used on more than one lens.

                          So far, I have not had any problems with the threading. I am careful when attaching and never tighten filters beyond snug. Have not had any problems.

                                Comments about Sensei 77-82mm Step-Up Ring:

                                I use the Sensei 77-82 step-up ring to adapt a variable neutral density filter to fit my 77mm filter size lenses which is a Nikon professional size standard. The ring is precisely built and cut so that there's quick engagement and is easy to put on and remove without tough spots and grittiness. It's all you want and need a step-up ring to be without surprises

                                    This step-up ring worked for me.

                                    I used it on a 82mm B + W CPL filter (which fits my 24-70 lens) and put it on a 77mm Canon wide angle 17-40 lens.

                                    It was easy to screw on and off. I didn't over tighten it. I did not get vignetting.

                                    Less expensive option to buying individual filters for each lens.

                                          There's no reason to spend a lot on step-up rings when you can get this level of quality at this price. It's sturdy and very thin - which is important because a thick ring makes lens flare more likely.

                                          It fits the canon 70-200 II f/2.8
                                          but it doesn't fit into a Hoya HD protector.
                                          I would have to take out my Hoya HD protector from the lens.

                                                Comments about Sensei 77-82mm Step-Up Ring:

                                                I use step-up rings predominately to mount a larger diameter circular polarizer or ND filter onto a smaller diameter lens thread - this saves me from having to purchase different sized filters (typically costing several hundred dollars each). I've used most of the top brand step-up rings made from different metals and I am always pleasantly surprised when a significantly less expensive product performs near enough to the premium-priced alternative. Sensei rings screw on and off with relative ease, they feel sturdy enough, are adequately labelled and do the job admirably.

                                                  I used this product to my 82mm filters..
                                                  each filters has its own step-up rings..

                                                  I bought this step-up ring so I could use my 82mm Singh-Ray Vari-ND filter on both my 16-35mm and 70-200mm lenses. Essentially you get two very expensive filters for the price of one. The ring looks well-made and it threads onto the lens and the filter with no binding or rough spots.

                                                          There's not really much too it. I use ot to allow the use of a Lee Filter holder with a Lee 82mm adapter. This way I don't have to buy expensive Lee adapters for each of my lens filter sizes (58mm-82mm) in order to use my square/ rectangular ND filters.
