Will 52mm filters work on VX2000

    I am wondering if I could use 52mm Sony filters with VX2000 which has
    a 58 mm lens.

    Of course I would have to buy a step-down ring. Sony VAD-S70 is a
    step-down ring from 58 to 52mm. However, the description says it is
    for still cameras.

    My question is will step-down ring and 52mm filters work on VX2000,
    has anyone tried it. Will the picture be still good.

    Thank you,

    Stepping down from 58mm filter to a 52mm lens is usually no problem, but
    stepping up is another issue all together due to the possibility of having
    the edges of the frame being cut off when you zoom back towards some of the
    widest angles available on the lens.
    Just double check (preferrably in an external monitor with underscan
    capability) to verify if there is any issue with vignetting.
