    using a 55mm filter on the 58mm adapter

    I have a few 55mm filters and am thinking about using these with a step ring on the 58mm lens adapter for the S3. It's not much of a size difference but I would like to know if it would show up in photos or if it would cause any vignetting.
    thanks

    I think it will be fine, it depends on how long the adapter is, most are just long enough. And how thick the ring is. Some are thicker then others, you could always sand it if its causing vignetting at full wide. Ive used 46mm filters that didnt have any vignetting but you never know stuff caries from brand to brand.

    That's good to hear BowerR64. I'll give it a try then. The step rings on Lensmate are only about $7 so it might save me a bit.
