Tamron 90mm macro plus pentax ring flash af160

I want to get the Tamron 90mm macro lens and Pentax AF160 ring flash (probably from B&H) but it seems that the flash does not come with an adaptor that fits the 55mm filter thread on the lens.
Am I right in assuming this and, if so, what adaptor should I get? I have tried looking at 'adaptors' but it is very confusing.

Get a 55-58 step up ring and you should be fine.

yep.. as Jeff says. I use the Tammy 90 and AF160 and the stepup ring causes no problem. Even the lens cap fits on it just as it does on the bare lens.
