Can anyone help me with this........

I would like to buy a Kestral Matte Box wich has been recommended a few time on this forum.... I've seen it, I like it, But.....

I have the Canon XM2 this has a 58mm thread no problem with that, the adaptor ring freely available.
I have two other Lenes, the Canon wide angle plus the Century x2 tele, both have 80mm at the big end. I can't seem to find an adaptor ring that size, 82mm no problem.
I don't really want to use a bar support, i want to keep the cost down.

"Kestrel" - from TLS ( True Lens Service) ask them for an adaptor ring. I have both lenses adaptors one that fits over both the W58H and Cent 2x big end.

Having said that, I am now acquiring a set of rails. The clamping of all that expensive glass/filters on the edge of the WA ain't doing my blood pressure any good!
