Holy cow 80$ for a ring. But okey thats a big step up. But without looking i wasnt that wrong with 10 to 40$ for a regular size :D

I was quite impressed! ;)
And yes, definitely a big step-up!

What bugs me about that lens is that it has no 82mm filter thread, as my 16-35 2.8 and the TSE 24Lii both have that size and i only have 82mm filters..

Would the 16-35 f/4 hood fit when a 77->82mm step up ring is used?

I like it because I don't need to do filter swap and dance. My 70-300L is 67mm and my 16-35 f/4 IS is 77mm and my 24-70 II is 82mm. And I often go out to shoot with 2 of those 3 or all 3 at once (I have other lenses that are also 77mm and 67mm too.)

Anyway I think a step-up ring would fit, as I just found that I can slide my 24-70 II filter and lens cap inside the hood of the 16-35 f/4 IS seemingly all the way down. I can't guarantee it, but I believe it actually would fit (I'm sure you have to put the hood on first though of course).

No, it won't fit.

are you sure? Because the 24-70 II lens cap seem to fit fully inside the 16-35 f/4 IS hood.

Oh, there definitely is a difference in price, but also quality. I also agree that it's worth it.

72-77mm step-up ring

$4.95

77-105mm step-up ring, the price difference is a bit steeper.

Wow those are some crazy prices for step-up rings (the higher listings there). I have to say I haven't any problems with the less expensive ones myself.

I've used some cheaper step-up rings. I don't see the point of a $75 ring, but there have been times where a cheap ring would get stuck to either the filter or the lens. I always had a fear that I'd never it off, or it would somehow break in the filter threads.

I tried to use the 135L lens cap (72mm) on my 77mm CPL and it does not fit. So I'm not sure why a 77mm lens cap would fit an 82mm thread. If it does, awesome! :D

I wish this was my experience.

Ridiculous price indeed, but I had the same exact fear. Like WTF NOOOOO! And then it finally got loose and came off. Worth it to eliminate the hassle/worry and save the threads.

wait up, at that price, why bother with the stepup ring and just go with a separate 77mm cpl? Am I missing something here?

It would be very interesting if someone wouldve tried out!

Its funny because the reason you like it is the reason i dont like that. I have bought all my filters in 82mm because of the 16-35Lii and the TSE 24ii :lol:

Yeah seems totally dumb but i own a tiffen ND filter set, a CPL and a few graduated NDs all in 82mm. Total worth of about 600$. Buying it all new would be really dumb too.. Also having 82mm filters was very practical as ive used them on both of my "landscape and architecture" lenses (those ive stated above..)

It wouldn't. But it fits INSIDE, implying that there is enough room to use a giant 82mm filter with adapter ring on the 16-35 f/4 IS. He wanted to know if he could use a 77->82 ring to attach his 82mm filter to the 77mm 16-35 IS and if it would fit inside the hood. I'm not 100% sure, but it seems to me that it would.

I've rented this lens for a few days. So far pretty good. I did an MFA and required nothing. 0 at both wide and tele. First time I've seen this.

f5, 1/20 sec handheld, 3200 ISO @16mm
