Excellent

By MikeR

Comments about Sensei 55-58mm Step-Up Ring:

Fraction of the cost of others, yet does exactly what I need it to do. Goes on and off easily, even without the threaded edge. Don't pay more unless it will see heavy use.

Does what it says.

By macDeviant

Comments about Sensei 55-58mm Step-Up Ring:

Simply put, it steps up from a 55mm filter thread to a 58mm filter thread. It has a solid metal construction and black coating. Specifically, I bought it to use a wideangle accessory lens with 58mm filter threads on my lenses with 55mm filter threads.

    Comments about Sensei 55-58mm Step-Up Ring:

    I needed to attach my new Nissin MF18 Macro Flash to my Tamron 100mm f/2.8 macro lens, which has a 55mm filter diameter. The Nissin flash comes with six adapters, from 49mm to 82mm, but as luck would have it, a 55mm adapter was not one of them. This Sensei 55-58mm Step-Up Ring was the easy answer. This metal adapter ring attaches smoothly, reflecting precision manufacturing. The Nissen 58mm adapter, in turn, smoothly attaches to the Sensei adapter. Both will end up always staying on the lens since the "spring-loaded" Tamron lens cap still fits the larger 58mm filter size. The "Sensei" name and ring size printing on the outer surface of the adapter is clean and makes the adapter look more expensive than it is. The Sensei step-up ring works perfectly for my set-up and maintains the precision look and feel of my camera and lens.

      Comments about Sensei 55-58mm Step-Up Ring:

      They are perfect for the intended use. Really inexpensive and they seem to be made with quality in mind. Pro tip, don't tighten them too much on your lens, the "grip" is really thin and you might not be able to get them out without a tool

        I use the product to make use of the filters I already have without buying more 55mm filters. It screws on my lens with ease.It doesn't screw on itself.

        mush have, if you make a mistake like I did, and buy a lens one size to big, get a step up ring, instead of returning everything.

            Comments about Sensei 55-58mm Step-Up Ring:

            Look, when the filters are larger than the lens in question, you need the tool to connect them rather than carrying all those different sizes, right? The threads are fine, the thing stays in place, it's exactly what it says it is - when you need it, this is exactly what you need.

              Very basic tool that enabled me to use my filters on several different lenses. Threaded very well on lens without any binding and filters threaded into it without any problems.
