Does anyone know the exact size of this ring. I am desperate to try out an extension tube but none of my step up/step down rings fit it.

Is it better to capture the moment imperfectly than not to capture it all? Hope so because most of mine are imperfect!! http://www.flickr.com/photos/rivertay/

As far as I remember it's a 58 mm male, but you better ask Bem Herrmann (http://www.dpreview.com/members/1640406435) to confirm it.


It is actually about 56.5 mm, it is not a standard thread size.
