Sensei FW-4858 reviews

48-58mm Filter Wrench (Set of 2) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 133.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best $ I've ever spent For $ you get not one, but two , of these insanely useful wrenches. Not only are they useful for getting stubborn filters off the lens or each other, but also for installing them on lenses that can be a bit temperamental. I also like how they cause no visible damage to either the lens or filter.I keep these with my camera so I have them whenever I need them and they have already paid for themselves, several times over.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from They Work They are a touch hard to grip if you have larger hands (as I do), but they helped to get me out of a pickle. In fact, this was sort of like trying to open a pickle jar. Tough... These are worth the price if you do not have a set. I keep them with me at all times when I am looking for landscapes to shoot and I know that I will be using filters off and on. Just save the headache. Get a set to fit your filter size and sleep better knowing that if you ever stack filters and they become impossible to pull apart using the many, many methods suggested by people online, this will save you a ton of frustration.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and Effective I love to carry filters in stacker caps to save space. But a filter can always jam and then fingers tend to be too fat to get ahold of just the filter itself and not part of the end of the lens. Seems like half the fight is trying to turn just the filter itself. These are simple, grab only the band on the filter and often just one is enough though sometimes two are required. Probably should be in any bag that contains filters you change out in the field. Down side only seems to be having to carry something else but they often slide right into one of those flat pockets on a camera bag and take up virtually no extra room. If you need something like this you will be very glad you have them

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Looks can be deceiving It looked like it might work. OK, what I bought this for might have been one of the tasks of Hercules. I had a 58mm UV filter on a MILC which took a fall. The lens is OK Fujifilm 18-55, built to last but there was a cracked, slightly misshapen filter stuck like super glue. While this wrench might work with a 48-55 filter that was just a little tight, 58mm is out of the question. I've seen the same wrench advertised as 48-55 elsewhere, a single wrench for the same price, by the way. For 58mm you must really strech this wrench so far open that it is difficult to even grab the handles. Only about 2/3 of the filter is gripped and I don't think it had a very good hold near the top, there was a tiny gap there. It puts quite a strain on the plastic and it keeps popping off. I found that the best method was to put the lenses on a flat surface, filter down to keep it from flying off. After putting it on about a dozen times it shattered into four pieces due to 'plastic fatigue'. It has ridges on the inside that might grab somthing soft like rubber but not so good on a metal ring. I fact I did try to use them to separate a 52mm filter and a rubber hood with no luck. I will say that if the task is not to difficult then having two in the package allows you to use one on the filter and one on the lens.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A life saver, well, photo saver I recently purchased several new lenses for my OMD E-M5 along with a complement of filters. Trying out one of the lenses photographing a small waterfall in the snow, I ended up with a circular polaroid filter locked tight to a variable density filter. With both having rotating rings, it was impossible to get purchase on the filters. These wrenches make quick and simple work of the job. I just wish I'd bought them at the same time as the lenses and filters. My only complaint is that they take a fair bit of space in my bag, but a small penalty for saving a future outing.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good for certain tasks I was hopeful that the wrench would wrest a seriously stuck filter off my lens, but no dice. It slips. I used enough grip on it to bend the handles, so I know I maxed it out. (The plastic thought is pretty strong. The handles did not break or crack.) On the plus side however, I keep on getting filters stuck on my step-up rings. For this task, these wrenches are ideal. It's hard not to grab both the step-up ring and the filter at the same time when trying to separate them. It only takes one wrench on the step-up ring thread and a twist of the filter to get it off. Even though the wrenches did not solve my other problem with filters, I am glad to have them for the second problem. I now keep one handy in my filter wallet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Money I Ever Spent This simple piece of plastic has the critical correct shape, thickness, and design to remove cross threaded lens filters. This $ saved my $Canon EF-S 18-55mm lens - the one I use the most - whew!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fits up to 62 mm I bought these, just in case I needed them. I have Pentax lenses, so most of the filters are 49 or 52 mm. I also have one lens that takes 62 mm filters and this wrench can be stretched to fit the 62 mm filter, if needed. I would agree that the wrenches appear to be a little delicate since they are all plastic. My intent is to use them only in an emergency, so I keep them in a flat pocket of my camera bag so they won't be damaged. If you used these wrenches frequently (several times a month), I am not sure they would hold up.
