i know..actually i've 2 58mm filters which the glass can be removed from...thought of sticking them together with epoxy, but thought i'd look around for the 'proper' thing first so i can save 2 filters.

and what if the epoxy should suddenly fail me?...50mm lens will fall off...:eek:

I have used super glue to stick my step up/down rings together for my EF 50mm f1.8 b4 ... work well

hmm..ok i'll try. roughly how much is a 58-62 step up (and down)? i'm thinking of using a 100/f2 on body with 50/f1.4 in front...possible combination?

i've heard that the magnification factor is the focal length of the lens on body divided by the focal length of the magnifier lens...true?

thanks for replies megaweb

The last round, I paid about S$10.00 for the 58-62 step-up ring at CP...

hey, so coincident, I just read an article in a magazine in MPH on Sat on lens coupling. Yeah, the magnification is the primary lens divided by the secondary lens. The magazine is Photo Techniques or something like dat...

probably the same article i read, nuts.

anyway i got my 58-62 step ups from MS colour today..$8 each ;) the uncle had such a perplexed look on his face when i told him what i wanted them for that i think he almost didn't know whether to sell them to me or not ;p

super glued the filters together, with some duct tape for added safety..i;ll go try this weekend see how things turn out.

thanks to all the helped in one way or another
