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.

My new lenses are 52mm filter thread and I have lots of 58mm filters and proxars but too few step-rings. So I ordered this one. It is OK, but the threads are not nearly as smooth as on the older ones, and there were a few small machining burrs on the 52s.

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.
