Pricey Polarizer.

Bought to replace stolen original which came with Nikon 300mm f2.8. Hideously expensive, in my opinion. It is the only product available for the job, and I think it is mandatory for bird photography over water, to cut down on some of the glare. It seems to me that the polarizing effect is relatively less extreme compared with others I have used on other lenses, but this is just an impression.For all I know, this may be intentional.

Another dimension of control

By

from Corvallis, OR  -  Photo Enthusiast

I purchased this (highly specialized) polarizer for the Nikon 200-400mm f/4 lens. While I found it important to pay close attention to the instructions for removing the standard drop-in filter and installing this, I am so pleased with the results and ease of use that I now leave the polarizer in place and treat is as simply one more of the numerous useful controls that are part of this lens. Not inexpensive, but I've found it to be a worthwhile investment given the results in my photographs

THE NIKON CPL3L 52mm Drop-In Polarizer

By

from San Marcos  -  Photo Enthusiast

This filter is used with my Nikon 200mm f2 VR lens. The filter as is the lens are very well built and tops in quality. Honestly, they are both awesome! That said, why the 4 Star? The cost for the filter is extreme and if you do not use it daily (I don't) makes it almost worth not having but when on the water shooting surfers, water sports & boat races or shooting buildings with lots of reflective glass, it is needed, so I sprang for it. The cost is the only downer but Adorama had the best price brake and that is why I purchase from them, they are a 5 Star Photog Company...

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
ROBERT T  I knew I wanted a polarizer for my new 300 mm f/2.8 lens.
Greg H  Does anyone know if the Singh-Ray Rotating Polarizers can also be fitted into this drawer?
Greg H  I received my Singh-Ray retrofit of their Blue-Gold polarizer today. It works flawlessly, and the optics seem more than capable inside the 300mm. I was able to work with the 77mm of this same filter on my Nikon 28-300 this past week with my D600. Beautiful effects, that seem to almost natural, almost as if they are simply more of what one expects from the polarizer. The gear-teeth work fine.
Shopper  Will this filter fit a Nikon 600mm AIS F4.5 Manual Focus lens? It presently has a 39mm filter.
WERNER A  sorry, I don't know. i'm using mine in a \400mm 2.8
