    what's a set up ring ? do you mean step up too ??

    also, please tell me where to get the stuff, a mere price tag doesn't help at all...


    thanks !

    A step up ring is merely an adaptor that fits onto the front of your lens where the filter is supposed to be and has threads on the other end to allow you to use a bigger filter.

    A step down ring is also available and does the vice-versa.

    You should be able to get them in shops around the Peninsula area. Just go and ask.
