Hi all. Having decided to start using square filters, I bought a used Lee holder . After looking at where to buy a 77mm adapter ring I came across this on eBay http://www.ebay.co.uk/​itm/231211306430 (external link) . It's clearly a good price even if duty etc to UK is added, so I wonder if anyone else here has bought one and what their opinion of it is. The seller's feedback is good, and the people who have bought adapters in various sizes all seem to be happy with them. Being Mr.Cautious I can't help thinking I've missed something obvious. Thanks in advance for any input.

Feedback looks good and certainly cheaper than a genuine Lee one (Currently £37.20 from Robert White). You'll just have to wait for it to come from the US.

I purchased one of these in the 82mm Wide Angle size for my Lee Foundation holder. It works fine. As long as the thread is properly machined, the lens adapter is not a super critical part. It only provides a lip for the filter holder to secure to. I consider the Lee equivalent part to be badly overpriced.
I would get the WA equivalent, there is no downside and you may want to put it on a WA lens in the future.

There's no reason to pay Lee's absurd prices, IMO.

I have cheap ones from eBay and they all work as expected. Cheap ones from overseas are $10, but if you need a local (US) supplier for quicker fulfillment, then thefilterdude.com (also a seller on eBay) is great. $25 shipped and I had mine in 3 days.

Oh, I just realized the link in the OP is from The Filter Dude. I just got my 72mm adapter from him today (again, only took 3 days for within US delivery). Quality is comparable to Lee's rings (I've had both the 77mm WA and 82mm WA adapters from Lee).

^^^I also have Serk adapters. I would recommend them if you're not in a rush. I have an 82mm WA from both Serk and Lee (well, I just sold the Lee). The Serk is every so slightly lighter weight. But functionally, it works just the same.
