Step-up ring question
Dec 7, 2012

I am in the market for a new filter and was considering buying 77mm filter even though the lens I'm currently using is 72mm.  I'm planning on eventually picking up a wide angle lens and most of those are 77mm, so I figured I'd be prepared.

In the meantime, I would be using a step up filter to use the 77mm filter on my 72mm lens.  It would be a pain to have to put that on every time.  I've never used a step up ring before, can I just attach it directly to the filter and leave it there as if it were all one piece, or would it not be secure enough on there?
