The Sensei 52-58 Step-Up Ring is the perfect fit for my Canon 52mm lenses. Fits great, and easy to assemble when using a hood, or UV filter.

      Comments about Sensei 52-58mm Step-Up Ring:

      Using a 58mm ND filter on a 28mm lens, shows no signs of vignetting at all.
      This is one of the cheapest you can buy. But the construction matches the higher priced competitors without a doubt.

        I picked up a set of used 58mm filters thinking my lens was 58mm also. Nope. My lens is 52mm. Presto, easy fix. This works great!

            I have other more expensive step-up rings and sometimes they jam, even when you don't over-tighten. This one never does that and you can't beat the price.

              Amazing price point for a well made step up ring. Attached my 58mm polarizing filter to it and threaded easily onto my new Nikon lens with a 52mm thread. No problems.

                        I find this has made finding filters much easier. I shop around before choosing the lowest price for a filter, this has opened my options more.
                        I will occasionally have trouble taking the filters off. Other than this, I think this product's worth it.

                            Comments about Sensei 52-58mm Step-Up Ring:

                            There is not a lot to write about such a simple product. It does what it is supposed to do: step a 58mm filter down to a 52mm filter ring.I have a lot of Canon FD lenses which use 52mm and the majority of my fixed EF lenses use 58mm. I carry very little because I would rather photograph than cart gear around. As such being able to use a 58mm for both old and new lenses helps a great deal. It also helps with donated or borrowed equipment.This step-up ring is as well built as a cost effective option can be but does not seem flimsy to me. It holds the filter well. I find a little oil from the body (back of the ear or side of nose) rubbed on the rings help a lot with threading and removing the filters and preventing binding. I would purchase more of these in other sizes, as needed. The product is also very lightweight. It is almost un-noticible being carried in a shirt pocket. I am very pleased.

                            I used this with my Lensbaby step up ring so I could attach a ring flash to my Lensbaby and it works great. I was surprised it was so inexpensive.

                              Great product, does what it is supposed to do. Nice threads, haven't and any issues with it being loose or to tight. Good product to have if you need to do some stepping up to a bigger size filter.

                                  Comments about Sensei 52-58mm Step-Up Ring:

                                  I was scared at first when I ordered this as I've experienced vignetting whenever I use a step-up ring. but no vignetting here! great!
