If I want to use a 82mm filter on a 52mm lens, how many step up ring do I need? What are they? How much is the ring? Where can get? Thanks.

Chances are you won't be able to do it in one step.

3 standard setups are:

52-62mm
62-82mm

52-67mm
67-82mm

52-72mm
72-82mm

Any decent camera shop will be able to get the steup rings though they may be a special order. Cost varies with brand, however generic rings will set you back 15-30 SGD per ring I'd guess.

if you are using general type filters, buyin the 52mm equivalent would actually be more viable and cheaper. Unless you are talking about B+W....

Nolah...just that my friend has a 82mm polarizer, and he wants to get a 82mm to 77mm ring to use the PL on a 77mm lens.

Nikkor do has a lens that is using 82mm thread. The old AF 300mm f/4.

Search around ebay and you might be able to get one at a decent price... ;)

One more reason to avoid Sigma. Maybe it's a conspiracy with filter manufacturers to earn more money. A lot of Sickma lenses use 82mm filters. :(

My Nikkor AF 20mm f/2.8D is only 62mm. So small and cute. :)
