    Is the step up ring from B+W made of brass?

    Last time I bought 1 step up ring from CP for $9. I asked them what is it made of and he says it's plastic. So far no issues thou.

    The reason why I use a step up is because I have a very good B+W KSM CPL which I use mainly on my wider lens at 77mm. My tele lens is 67mm. So, an adaptor is necessary.

    Actually, to tell the truth, I'm not that sure it's brass. But I'm sure it's not plastic. It feels metallic. It's either brass or aluminium.

    I gave up trying to understand the first post. TS, you need to brush up on your english really badly.

    Then again, "Never use a step-up ring"? Hey, the problem just happened to you. Don't make it seem like the problem lies in every step-up ring.

    few yrs back, i didnt attached my 35-80mm lens hood properly, and it fell into the water while i was shooting the merlion.

    guess i should also post a thread "NEVER USE LENS HOOD!!!!!!"

    I need to add then "Never use PnS cameras!" (I have donated the other exclamation marks to the League For Proper Use Of Punctuation Marks.)
    But from that experience I know that CF cards do survive seawater adventures. Somewhat comforting

    My brother's Lexar CF survived the washing machine... so "Always use Lexar CF!!!!!"

    ... and the League For Proper Use of Punctuation Marks can suck on my exclamation marks!

    following that logic, drop clothes into water, then NEVER USE CLOTHES.
