I have a quick question reguarding rings. I have a kodak P850 which is a 55mm thread. I have the kodak adaptor which says 53mm-55mm. My question is im looking at some 52mm wide angle lenses and wanted to know what I need. What type of ring would I need? A 55mm-52mm step down ring?

Thanks

yes, you would need a 55mm to 52mm step down ring, but watch out it may cause some vingetting....

Going downward in size will usually cause some dark edges in your wide angle photos ( vignetting) . Why would you wish to go down in size when you can find so many good wideangle lenses for so little money that are 55mm in size? The Schneider wide angle lens is a very very good lens and I believe if you look around you'll find some made by others that do a good job and are 55mm..

I bought the raynox hd-6600 that works perfectly !!

(And there is a 55mm version)

Thanks for the replys guys. I'm actually leaning more towards the Kodak or Raynox now. I thought If I could get a 52mm it would be cheaper, but then I have to buy the step down ring and there would also be loss of quality.
