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.

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

    I use these rings to mount my 82mm polerizer on my lenses that have 77mm filter threads.

    The Sensei step up rings are high quality and fit perfectly and the price was good also.

    Nothing bad to say about the rings.

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

      I thought I would give this a try rather than purchasing another CPL filter. It works but I find it very difficult to remove it from the filter once it is attached. It is so bothersome that I find myself not using it. Maybe if the threads were lubed with a dry based lubricant such as silicon or graphite it may unscrew easier, I haven't tried doing that just yet.

      Got this so I didn't have to sell my 82mm 10 stop ND filter and purchase a new 77mm one. It has worked flawlessly.

              I would much rather have one of these rings and use one set of filters for my 82mm and 77mm lenses than duplicate sets of filters taking up bth room and budget. Nice design, seems durable and saved a bunch of money.

                                      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.

                                            This item is made out of metal and seems to be a pretty good quality for that price !!! Totally satisfied - would buy it again ...
