I Ordered the Redrock microMattebox Deluxe bundle and the 82mm to 72mm step down ring. I included a question in the order notes, asking if I need the ring for the HD200 stock lens, just to make sure I'm ordering the correct stuff. They replied saying that I don't need the ring, but asked what I needed the ring for (kind of making the question and answer recursive).

Now I'm a bit cofused, so does anybody know whether I actually need this (or another) step down ring. Below are links to the two products:

The step down ring is used with the M2 adapter, it connects the stock lens with the achromatic lens.

If you're not using an M2 you don't need the step-down ring.

Hope that helps.
