Heliopan 54mm to 55mm Step-up #190

B&H folks,

I just purchased a Leica Summicron-R 90mm lens to convert to k mount, and it is my understanding that its filter mount is meant for Series 7 filters as opposed to regular screw-in filters. Now it is also my understanding that a 54-55mm step up ring will screw into the threads and allow the use of 55mm screw in filters. B&H is the only place that I can find that has 54-55mm step-up rings listed(the Heliopan listed in the thread title), but they are listed as taking 6-10 weeks to ship. Is this 6-10 weeks an accurate estimate?

I am taking a trip in about 6 weeks and would love to be able to get the the step-up before then if possible so I could use the 55mm filters I already have, but if it won't be ready to ship until after the trip I would just wait.

Thanks

Hello,

Our Heliopan 54mm to 55mm Step-up #190 ring is special ordered from Germany ( it is not stocked in the US ) and typically will take 6-10 weeks for delivery. I checked with our Used Dept and we currently did not have one available.

Thanks for the reply. I guess I'll just get some Series 7 filters for the time being.

You may want to try Teamworkphoto. They do carry the heliopan line of lens hood and stepping rings at what I presume to be lower prices than B&H. I had made purchases from them before as well. Do check it out with them.
