    Does anyone here [ in Sydney ] have a 72mm filter lying around somewhere
    that is damaged or doin nothing *maybe* ? :)
    cracked one is fine as well ,as I will only need to test mount one a lens
    that I just bought of eBAY that somehow has a damaged mount :(

    Anyone ?

    Make that the filter thread.
    Posting msg @ 3am in the morning is not really adviseable I guess :)

    If the filter is damaged how will you know it is the lens ? Why dont you
    just buy a new filter thread and call it quits. Simple to replace in the
    bulk of situations.

    Maybe he wants a filter that's damaged in the glass (plastic), not around
    the edge.
    Then again, maybe I have it all wrong...

    If you ever try to break a filter you can rest assured that the filter ring
    is not the same as it was prior. But then I am referring to Schott-glass
    filters from Germany.

    If you don't want to buy a filter then a stepping ring is heaps cheaper.

    Got the filter to test mount on the lens filter thread, coming to my mailbox
    by next week.
    Hopefully the filter will fit if not, the seller will hear me nagging day in
    day out for misleading auction description.

    thanks ppl.
