Step up rings on the 60mm?

Hi,

The diameter of the front element on the XF 60mm is considerably smaller than the diameter of the lens barrel as a whole. The filter thread is around the element, not the outer lens barrel. So, unfortunately some step up rings (say, for example, 39mm to 43mm) cannot even be screwed onto the filter thread, being blocked by the part of the lens between the element and the outer barrel.

Does anyone know of a solution?

Are there any step up rings which are shaped to fit? Or maybe an elongated empty ring that screws into the lens filter ring and then has a female thread a little further from the lens?

Thanks,

-Paul
