What if I was able to get a 37-55mm step-up ring for a decent price? It's generic and Aluminum. But the price/shipping can't be beat. Would it be anti-vignetting since it's not stacking up multiple rings?

There is no reason why you shouldn't try this 37-55mm step-up ring. As long as it can bring the two lenses together with minimal gap, it is a good solution.

Hi- just thought I would mention that I am also using an EagleEye OpticZoom lens (see photo http://www.stevesforums.com/forums/v...mp;forum_id=50 ). The quality is execellent! Bought mine from Phil Williams at http://www.photosolve.com He has an excellent self-explanatory website dealing with all types of configurations.

I always have a 37/52mm step-up ring attached so as to accommodate my UV filter, 2x teleconverter, lenshood, etc. Im using a lightweight / compact DAT Digital Optics 2x teleconverter (titanium series). I do note some colour abration at times when using the TCbut I guess this is dependant on light conditions / settings. Otherwise it works fine for me.

The above is being used in combination with my faithful Sony Cybershot DSC-S85 camera. Attached is a photo using the EagleEye OpticZoom lens together with the 2x teleconverter. Note..... the photo has been cropped.

Cheers

Herman
