hi all.. so.. i have an issue.. its stupid... I got a fisheye filter/lens @ my local thrift store for $5.. thought it would be fun to play arond with.. now, its got a 10x macro screwed on the back, with a 49mm step down on it. it measures @ 49mm. So i started looking for a stepdown ring- 58 to 49. found one thru a seller on Ebay... so i bought it-- it was like... $6 total. so i get it here, and rip it open, throw the packageing in the trash, and go to put it on the filter, and it didnt fit. so i measured it.. measures at 46mm. .. so after like.... 6 emails to the seller {they didnt believe me--even when i took a picture of it with a measuring tape, and sent it} i just dropped it.. figured it as a lesson learned... so today, surprise surprise, i got another stepdown ring from them. didnt ask for it. didnt pay for it. so, i grab it again, and try to put it on.. and SAME THING HAPPENS. doesnt fit.. i dotn get it.. is thre a trick i dnot know about measuring filters?? isnt it jsut thewidth acrossin cms??? what am i not doing right?? help????

The lens opening is marked on the front of the lens in mm's......that's the filter size. He sent you the wrong thing.

[align=center]the Never ending filter ring saga[/align]
[align=center][/align]
[align=left]ok, so the seller sent me another ring, for free. didnt say they were gonna, it just showed up in the mail. box said same thing.. that it was a 58-49. well. it didnt fit either. so at that point ij ust thought ''screw it'' and bought an entire step down set from a different seller on Ebay. got that set in yesterday. the 49mm fits perfectly. like it was made for it. so, i sent the original seller an email letting them know that Even tho I didnt get the item recieved, i was willing to just drop it. BUT that i wasnt going to leave feedback.. I felt that even tho the item wasnt as stated on the site, that they had ok customer service {seeing as they did originally try to fix it by sending a different filter ring} well! i got an email back from the seller today, stating that they were never in the wrong, and that it MUST have been my error. go figure!! i guess the end result of this.. is i wasted some money, and lots of time.. to find out that i dont wanna buy from that seller ever again...[/align]
