Stepping rings allow filters of different sizes to be fitted to lenses.
The standard naming system has the lense's filter size first followed by the filter's filter size. So a 40.5mm - 49mm will allow a 49mm filter fit a lens with a 40.5mm filter size. These are especially useful when lenses like Sony's 16-50mm lens has an odd 40.5mm size.
