    Heliopan 700147 reviews

    52-77mm Step-Up Ring (#147) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 16.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from An unfortunate experience. I thought to save a few $ and some space in my kit by using this so I could use my larger filters on a lens with a 52mm filter thread. Well, it worked but, unfortunately, I could not remove my 77 mm filter from the step-up ring when I was done. I have tried filter wrenches. I even bought a new set of wrenches and gave it another try. I may be the only person to have this experience but that filter is there to stay. I had to buy a new filter to use with my 77mm lenses and I really should buy a 52 mm filter for the lens I bought this for. This was my experience. I hope other folks have had or will have better luck.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong Link Though this is a very expensive product and one can get step-up rings much cheaper, they are perfectly finished and confidence inspiring. But then my filters are very expensive as are the lens that they thread onto. These are sturdy, beautifully finished and will not stick or lock. Precision threading that makes removing and adding filters smooth and removes any consequent frustration in time-bound situations. Over the years, I have had all kinds of step up/down rings, but having moved to better filters (thin profiles), I am coughing up the extra to protect them too. These are the best rings I have come across.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 52-77mm Step-up Ring Made from brass, won't bind to your lens. The only type of step-up ring I'll use! Not cheap, but won't cause problems in the field.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from We all need one I picked up a Nikon 12-24 and a few quality 77mm filters. Wanting to use the filters with a prime lens I looked into a highly regarded step up ring.I decided on the 77mm Step-up Ring #147 by Heliopan. The reviewers all spoke of the quality and the fact that the ring will not stick.Being a victim of a stuck ring I am aware of the value of a high quality anything you are threading on to a lens or filter.I couldn't be more satisfied than I am with this purchase. There isn't one thing I can remotely come up with that is negative. I will add that B&H Photo was fast,fast.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from quality ring Just wanted to test heliopan's ring quality. I was wondering if the built quality was really that great compared to some b+w's that i found great. B+W seems like solid plastic, they're also very nice. Heliopan's feel more like metal ring, won't be easy to break, that's for sure. Well, they do cost more but they're very solid. The metal feel might be a problem for some people when screwing and unscrewing filters, maybe some might prefer platic rings. I keep the filter with lenshood on my lens so it doesn't bother me. If you don't want to worry about changing those rings, and have the extra coins, go for heliopan. They do weight a lot more by the way. I also got some heliopan metal lens hood, the built quality is excellent. I might do some shotgun tests like on those pelican products, ok maybe it won't survive that treatment lol 4 stars because of the price, but quality cost more, that's a fact.. still, maybe lower the price a bit, it's just a ring Hope this helped, have a nice day!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It just works Although a bit pricey, you can be sure this step-up ring will not bind. It is also built like a tank.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brass, not flimsy aluminum. The ONLY Step-Up Ring(s) you will ever buy again. That's because Heliopan makes THE ONLY brass Step-Up Ring(s). The rest are all made of aluminum. Pricsy. Yes, but if you've ever had your expensive filter stuck tight to any of the other brands of aluminum Step-Up Rings, you know what I'm talking about-and I think I've tried most of them. Do yourself a favor, spring for the best. Considering the thousands of dollars many of us have spent on cameras and lenses over the years, this is a chance to buy the best for what amounts to pocket change

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from You could dig in the garden with it! There are not many heavy duty 52-77mm step rings out there, most are plastic or aluminum. This is brass and is seriously sturdy. You could probably use is as an improvised gardening trowel and it would be none the worse for wear. On the downside, it's heavier than any other step ring you've ever seen. I use it on a Fuji 240mm view camera lens. But by the time you pack everything needed for a view camera, the additional weight is not notable and you have a step ring that is not going to bind to a filter, short of catastrophic destruction. The other downside is that it's so good that it's remarkably expensive, but if you plan on using it for decades, it's not really that expensive. I have no doubt that it will outlast me! I have heard that brass transmits shock instead of deforming like aluminum or plastic. At the risk of cursing myself, I will say that in nearly 40 years of photography I've never dropped a lens. :-) But if you're the kind of person who drops lenses, well, you may want a bit more of an airbag. Personally, I think this unit is worth the bucks and I'm more concerned about a filter binding than I am about dropping a lens and in that regard, the Heliopan is a winner.
