Here are a couple of lens adapters to choose from. They bothstep downin size which saves on filter costs.

Hey Rezajune,

I hope you get this because I ordered the Phayee adapter ring set from Rongjin last Thursday 11/11 and I have tried to email him with some questions and I have not received any response. How did you get in touch with this guy? I wanted to order his lense cap with the tether but I couldn't seem to add the item to my order on ebay. I am an ebay neophite so I must have missed something. Any help you can give me in contacting Rongjin I would appreciate.
thanks, smac

Moncho,

Thank you for you reply. I will try that address again.

My spanish is not very good.
Are you saying that my eyes make me look like an Orangutan on hormones.:-)
If so, I accept your compliment.
My wife just says I look like an idiot.

You both may be right. :-)

Thanks again,
smac

Ron Jin is a great guy because I asked him and or emailed him several times before I even purchased his adapter, and everytime he emailed me back promptly.

You have nothing to worry about, it took some time for me to get the adapter...like around 2 weeks..but thats because it has to go through customs I believe. With all that 911 stuff I heard that international packages take much longer now.

Let me know if you still encounter any difficulties with Ron Jin, which or I hope you won't.

Rezajune and all the rest,

Thanks for the replies. I will just relax and wait. I really wanted to find out how I could add one of those lens caps with the tether. Oh well, I guess I will just keep trying to email him and things will work out.

Again many thanks,

smac
