And the answer probably was 42. What I use as extension rings sometimes is old filters, which are mostly worthless. Just remove the glass or plastic and stack them. The cheap ones are the best, because those can be unscrewed to get the glass out. (Use rubber gloves, preferably no tools.) Because they're so thin, one needs quite a few, but adjusting is very easy because of that. Another advantage is that the size of one's own filters usually matches one's own lenses. wim 42 is close to the number of times the correct answer was given although nobody was sure what the question was by the time we hit page 34 😀. I must have missed the Russian ladies. I would recommend a pack of plastic filter wrenches (Chinese ones are fine) to remove step-up or step-down adapters that get stuck (cost about £4). I got one stuck tight on a lens and fortunately had one of those plastic wrenches to remove it. I expect you or Harry will have some alternative suggestion that costs nothing but it was worth the £4 at the time to me 😀. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
