Thread: Adapter ? Step up rings ?

    Default Adapter ? Step up rings ?

    Hi, hope someone could help me with this :

    I have a adapter 45.6 - 47mm with UV, skylight filters etc.

    Thinking of getting a teleconverter TCON1.7~55mm. Can I just get a step up ring or do I need to get another adapter 45.6-55mm.

    Is there any difference ?

    by the way, i am using Oly C740.

    I believe you shouldn't have any problem in using just the step up ring from 47mm to 55mm ?
    I guess the only difference is that whenever you want to use the 55mm adapter, you have to remove the 47mm adapter that you are using with your 47mm filters? I dunnoe if there is an adapter for 45.6 to 55mm though. If there is an 45.6mm to 55mm adapter, mabbe u can consider using it throughout, meaning changing all ur filters to 55mm too..
