    I'll take the lack of responses as a no.
  3. Try eBay. It says I can get them here in Australia (through China) for $3-4.

    I've looked for 40.5mm step-up rings at my local camera stores before, and could find none. Not to any SLR size. I guess 40.5mm was just such a common standard for rangefinders, unlike SLR sizes which varied so much, so who would need an adapter ring? Although I'm surprised there's no step-up to 46mm.

    But, when camera stores don't carry them... there's always something on eBay. ;)  I just can't stand the wait, myself.

    I have a 40.5 to 52mm that I got from amazon fotodiox. A 40.5 to 46mm kenko also from amazon.
