A step up adapter is a good tool for getting the most out of your expensive filters. Graduated filters don't work so well using this technique, but imagine using one filter type for multiple thread sized lenses. Step-up rings can also be stacked to get even more use out of a single filter. Keep in mind though that the closer the filter is to the lens, the better the results will be.

Another useful feature is that this step-up ring can be used to prevent vignetting. Sometimes a filter can produce vignetting, especially on wide angle lenses. Stacking filters may cause vignetting as well. If using the adapter ring with larger sized filters, the problem may be eliminated as the filter rings are expanded out beyond the lens.

This Step-up ring is made of a sold and sturdy but light weight metal construction. I tend to pack a lot of equipment into my camera backpack and carry it all over the place. Not only does this tool reduce my equipment expense, but limits the number of items I carry around.

The only problem I've seen with using a step-up adapter is that the lens hood at the same time is pretty much out of the question. This should be expected though as this is a common issue of any step-up ring adapter.

PROS:
Solid metal construction
Allows one to use their expensive filters for their 77mm lens other lenses
Light weight and easy to use

CONS:
Makes using the lens hood on your other lenses difficult if you are able to use it at all

Well constructed of metal, it does what it is designed to do and the is allow me to use my 77mm filters on a lens with 72mm threads. Not much to say, it just works and it is well priced.

Very inexpensive, works well and fits my 77mm filters onto my smaller 72mm Nikon lenses with no problems whatsoever.

I buy all 77mm filters and then use these great adapters to use my filters on my smaller lenses. A great deal!

The build quality is great.

If you have a very wide to long focal length lense you may have the problem of vignetting (cutting off the corners) in your pictures when you stack filters. If you are like me and NEVER take off your UV filter so your front optic remains pristine then you will probably have this problem with polarizing filters or special effects filters. Stepping up to lager filters by at least 5mm will eliminate the vignetting problem. You will need to also buy a matching lens cap and lens shade but your pictures will be much better.

I have a 77 mm Hoya ND filter. I placed this adapter on my wishlist and received as gift. The first time I used it, I just practiced setting up a few shots working out settings. When I took it off my lens, the adapter was stuck to the filter. I cannot get it off and fear I will ruin my filter. While this is the first time I have used one of these, I did not over tighten it. Word for the wise - do a Google search on 'stuck filter adapters' before using this and buyer beware. None of the solutions has worked for me.

I've spent many hours comtemplating how to review this step-up adaptor. It changed my photographic life forever. How did I ever get along without this step-up adaptor is beyond comprehension. Just think about it, one day you own a really really good camera with a big lens size and then one day you buy a cheezy camera and instead of having to buy another lens you just get one of these step-up adapters. Wow, I can't believe the genius in this little device. I recommend it to everyone on the planet, especially those who take pictures.

I use this ring on my Nikon D300 and my 18-200 zoom which my kids, or my spouse use. Since I own a wide range of 77mm Singh-Ray filters, and every now and then someone wants to use my filters it was cheaper to purchase this ring and keep it permanently affixed to the 18-200 than purchase, and carry, and store separate filters. I cringe when they handle my (expensive) Singh-Ray's but so far, knock on wood, they haven't broken or scratched any of them.

But this ring works. I keep permanently attached and I have several 77mm Nikon lens caps so I use that over the lens instead of the stock one.

I wish this unit came with a tiny bottle of graphite because it is dang hard to remove once screwed together to a filter. Other than that it works as expected.
