Is there any difference in Step-up ring quality? I need a 62mm > 72mm ring and don't know if I should spend twice as much on a Nikon ring.

Adorama Step-Up Adapter Ring 62mm Lens to 72mm Filter Size ($9.95): http://www.adorama.com/FLU6272.html

Nikon UR-1 Filter Adapter Ring 62-72mm ($19.95): http://www.adorama.com/NKUR1.html?searchinfo=ur-1&item_no=1

I plan to use this with my Coolpix 4300 (via the UR-E4 Adapter which brings thread size from 28mm to 62mm). The step up ring will step me up to 72mm. Thus, I plan to buy the "Tiffen 72mm Photo Essentials Filter Kit " for $119.95: http://www.adorama.com/FLK72.html

All this to basically feel assured that I will not get vignetting with the filters. Plus my WC-E63 Wide angle lens also uses 72mm.Does 72mm filter sizes seem likea good choice for my application(s)????

BTW, I thought these were some pretty good Nikon reference pages:

You can get a decent ring a lot cheaper than what Nikon wants for theirs, just make sure you get a metal ring, not a plastic one. I've dealt with Adorama several times and have always gotten what I expected although I feel that their shipping rates are a little on the high side.

Check out this link: http://www.2filter.com/prices/produc...s%20to%20100mm. They carry many different grades of adapter rings, both step up and step down and tell you the difference between them. You can pick up a ring in the size you're looking for $8.17 and up. They have an 800 number on their website and arepretty friendly people so don't be afraid to give them a call if you have any questions. Their shipping rates are $3.91 for orders under $50 and free over $50.
