Dear Reader:

I have bought a SONY DSC - H5. Its nice and cool for photo shooting Picture. There is an "Adapter Ring" (supplied with the H5 package) which is made of Plastic. I am affaid of that the plastic adapter ring may be broken down any time accidentally.

Recently, I'm planing to buy - Sony Tele Lens : VCL-DH1758 and VCL-3358 for this H5. Both the lens I have to fixed with the adapter ring which may also increase the risk of break due to higher usage.

Can any one provide me any solution for this problem. Is there any better quality, Adapter Ring (58mm diameter) is available in market for DSC-H5 model compatible ?

If there is any information in this regard please share with me/us.

Thank You.

I just bought a Sony DSC H5 but it did not include the lens adapter. I read your post and was wondering if you had purchase an adapter from the link above. If so, would you recommend it?

I recently bought two Step Down rings from them and can state they are reputable, ship and deliver as stated ( fast ) and they responded to my emails.

Yes, I am in the UK and bought from them no problem a couple of years back.

Exellent adapter, much better than the plastic Sony one.

Nothing...

But the metal adapter, looks better, is likely to be harder wearing, is not cheap looking, is slightly shorter to help prevent vignetting, and did I mention its not cheap and tacky, plus the more expensive model has the integrated hood plus the lens cap is nice and fits tightly and does not fall off when given a stern look.

But you don't actually need it, its just nice, and complements the camera.

Default Adapter ring

I have an H5 and H1 and use the adapter ring to fit tele lens on both. No problems. I wouldn't worry about breaking it. Great camera choice in my opinion.
