I've got every step ring from 37mm to 86mm and back down again, doubles of a lot because i've screwed them too tightly and it's cheaper to just get another one.
And I think I might have spent £55 all up.
Thank you ebay.
Thank you China.
My biggest use of my filter wrenches is taking those rings apart. I paid about $7 for a set of them from fotodiox. I mostly use them with my reverse adapter to play with old lenses for macro use.
I was finally able to see a G1 X last week at my local dealer. I was suprised at how small it was, after hearing people say it was large. Certainly the lens telescopes in nicely, which makes it possible to drop in a coat pocket. If the price were $500, I'd probably have one.
I would not use a adapter though, the point of my getting one would be to avoid changing lenses. If I were willing to screw on a adapter, I'd get a interchangable lens model.
