new stairs and wood flooring

Im having my stairs redone. They are using 3/4" maple for the treads. I am also having carpet replaced with wood flooring upstairs. My flooring to be installed is 1/2" What is the right way to make up the difference at the landing between the wood on the stairs and the wood flooring? I believe it should be a flush transition (no moulding or transition strip) right ?

Sure it's not 5/4 (1" treads) not 3/4?
At the top of the stairs you should be using a landing tread.
Adding plywood to add the needed thickness to the whole subfloor for a level transition would be the way I would do it.
