This set came highly recommended by the sales staff at adorama after I found out you get what you pay for in lens filters.I was excited when they came and the 1st thing I did was to hold them to a light and I was shocked at what I saw fingerprints!! enough to find out who they were If I really wanted too :) and on top of that they were completely dirty scratched and pitted unreal for the optics community .1st off they were not wrapped or protected in any way secondly there are little sharp silica packs (most likely culprit for scratches) in there I returned them [...]I was livid because I had shoots planned around the 1st delivery and had to set it back and when they came back bad again My window of opportunity had passed . They are made in NY and I was glad to buy American but the total lack of qa here is bad and I'll never buy tiffen again they came with high endorsements but I'll never put faith in them again

Good all around kit

By

from Lacey, WA  -  Photo Enthusiast

This is a good basic kit if you don't have any other MC or CPL filters. I primarily use to protect the front of the lens and keep dirt from being sucked in.

Great Kit for 28 AFS 1.8 Nikkor

By

from Jacksonville Florida  -  Semi-pro Photographer

This was provided as a promotional item in the purchase of the Nikon AFS 28 F1.8 lens, but once I opened it, I was very happy to have it. The Tiffen filter pouch with the 3 provided filters is perfect for storage. It does not take up much space and has minimum bulk. It slips easily into the back flap pocket in both of my Domke F10 and messenger bags, for fast access when I need a filter or to change a filter.

Fair price and does the job

By

from Pennsylvania  -  Photo Enthusiast

I use the polarizer filter to reduce glare and improve color saturation the most often. I only use the other 2 (UV & warming) on occasion. They all work well and have held up well for over 3 years. I do notice some softening on my photos but nothing that can't be fixed in post processing.

Good fiilter set for the non-pro

By

from Fairfield Glade, TN  -  Photo Enthusiast

Initially, I had difficulty getting the UV filter on, but the other two went on easily. All filters seem to work as they are supposed to.

Good kit - GREAT for free!

By

from Leominster, MA  -  Photo Enthusiast

The only thing that is a negative with this kit is the circular polarizer turns a bit stiff. Otherwise the optics are good and have good effect. They came free with a bundle with my Canon 70-200mm f/4L IS USM lens so for that it is GREAT!

Grease/oil? Really?

By

from Oklahoma City, OK  -  Tech Savvy

Filters came dirty. Finger prints and smudges on them. What really got me was that the CPL filter in the set came with GREASE in the rotating part of the mechanism! Now, every time I use a lens brush or lens cloth, I get grease on the brush and/or cloth, as well as smear it all over the glass it self. The brush then spreads it to my other filters! UGH!! The purpose of the grease is to make the CPL turn nice and smooth and possible stay where you put it, but there HAS to be a better way than GREASE! I am going to have to take this apart and clean the grease off of this filter before I use it again. Good filter, just beware.
