The Xume 49mm Lens Adapter is a precision-machined metal ring that attaches to a lens with a 49mm-diameter filter thread to provide instant and secure attachment of filters when Xume Filter Holders are installed. This adapter ring incorporates NdFeB rare Earth magnets into its design to enable a strong, but easy to remove, connection between the lens adapter and filter holder. By using quick-to-remove magnets to attach filters, changing of filters can occur much more quickly and eliminates the chance of cross-threading or jamming when installing or removing filters. The ring is approximately the same thickness as most step-rings and will not cause vignetting on most lenses with focal lengths as wide as 24mm (35mm equivalent). Over-the-lens type lens hoods are still compatible when Xume Adapters and Holders are in place and are recommended during use to provide an even more assured connection if working in busy environments.

Traditional snap-on lens caps are not directly compatible with Xume lens adapters. To protect the front element of a lens that is not in use, but has a Xume lens adapter installed on it, a Xume filter holder can be first connected to a snap-on lens cap. The combination of a snap-on lens cap and a Xume filter holder can then be placed over the lens instead of a filter with a Xume filter holder. Alternatively, a Xume lens cap designed to cover a correspondingly-sized Xume lens adapter may be used instead.

    49mm Lens Adapter is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Invention This is a great invention. It makes you want to use filters rather than be talked out of the trouble. It is an idea well worth promoting, I think the best invention for photography in years. I use solid metal lens caps now with this device and never worry about losing a lens cap in the field by accidentally bumping and uncoupling the flimsy latch,which can easily occur.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, But With Issue On the positive side, it works quite well with respect to adding and removing filters, which is its main purpose after all. On the negative side, though, the knurling on this size adapter ring makes it hard to impossible to put on the lens' native shade (Sony A6000 E-mount). This puts me in the position of buying a third-party screw-in shade, plus another adapter. While not a bad solution, it won't protect the lens quite as much as the native shade. i.e. the combination of Xume adapter + 3rd-party shade will snap right off when dropped, exposing the glass, while the native (bayonet) shade won't come off quite so easily. To their credit the Xume people are aware of this problem and have said they are contemplating an adapter without the knurling.
