Firstly, the ring is inexpensive and made good enough for me.
Now, let me offer my best advice to avoid cross threading filters. Never screw it on with too much force use light pressure only. and, (the best for last) to help keep from cross threading filters first rotate the filter in reverse, wait for the threads to drop in place then rotate to screw on the filter. Starting in reverse will help to properly align the threads. I hope this helps!

This step-up ring works with regular 77mm filter, but not with 77mm XUME lens adapter. When I try to screw on the XUME adapter, it kept spinning on the step-up ring. I guess thread on the step-up ring may not be cut near the front of the step-up ring. XUME lens adapter is very thin. I end up purchasing different 72mm to 77mm step-up ring at local camera shop which worked fine with XUME adapter.

SOLID Construction - Works like a Charm

Comments about Sensei 72-77mm Step-Up Ring:

It's pretty simple... It's a Step-Up Ring, but as any experienced cam op knows there are some flimsy ones out there which make it a pain in the butt when filters need to be added/changed on run&gun shoots. But, this STEP-UP RING makes it a breeze! Solidly made & super dependable! HIGHLY Recommend!!!

Nice thin ring. Works great.

By Robert

Comments about Sensei 72-77mm Step-Up Ring:

This is a well made and thin ring. I have lenses with both 72 and 77mm filter threads. I get the 77mm filters and use the step-up ring for use with the 72mm lenses. Works great, but don't over-tighten the filter into the step-up ring or you may need a filter wrench or a bit of fiddling to separate the step-up ring from the filter. (That applies to any step-up ring and filter combination)

Comments about Sensei 72-77mm Step-Up Ring:

I use this step up ring on my rokinon Cine DS 85mm lens with the DSLR Magic Variable Neutral Density filter.
and it works great. the only thing to keep in mind is that your original lens hood will no longer fit because of the set up ring.

      Not too much to say about it. Seems well made and it will work for my intended purpose - placing a 77mm night time hydrogen alpha filter on the end of my telescope so that it fits just inside the dew shield without falling off.

        It works. Really no magic here. You want to put your 77 on a 72, bad boy will not pull any rabbits out of a hat, but works every time. Get it. I am happy with mine

          Best Uses

          • Reduce Number Of Filters

          Comments about Sensei 72-77mm Step-Up Ring:

          The construction is really good for the price, and does exactly what it says: lets you use a 77mm filter, on a 72mm Lens. Use the step-up ring on the 72mm lens and then attach a 77mm filter onto the other side of it.

          This is also useful for saving money on nice filters, buy the nice filters for your largest lens and get step-up rings to use them on smaller lenses. It also helps you reduce the number of filters you need to carry! Economical!
