Less effect than hoped

I bought this lens to enhance my outdoor photos when glare and reflections are a problem. I use it on a D80 with a 18-200mm lens. Optically it's a fine piece of gear and works just as intended. I do have occasional problems as, when adjusting the polarity while looking through the view finder, I actually unscrew the filter. If the filter is tightened sufficiently to prevent this, removal can be very difficult. It would be nice if the polarizer could be adjusted by using the lens hood but, as

I bought this lens to enhance my outdoor photos when glare and reflections are a problem. I use it on a D80 with a 18-200mm lens. Optically it's a fine piece of gear and works just as intended. I do have occasional problems as, when adjusting the polarity while looking through the view finder, I actually unscrew the filter. If the filter is tightened sufficiently to prevent this, removal can be very difficult. It would be nice if the polarizer could be adjusted by using the lens hood but, as it is the filter and the lens hood are incompatable, this is not possible. Optically I would recommend the filter while ergonomically I would not.

Excelent

The filter is perfect. There is only a problem, one side is 72mm and the other 82mm. So you can´t use the lenses cover with the Polarizer.

Good Value

By

No one wants a cheap lens filter, but where is the line? Filters can be very expensive, and you don't know where the value point is. I chose this lens for the price and the manufacturer. I trust Nikon to make excellent optics, and I assume their filters will have optimum quality and compatibility.

None finer!

Outstanding filter. Keeps the rich blue skies often present. The whites & greys are intense too. Photos of brightly colored sports uniforms also are true w/out distorting the skin tone of the athletes.

Really nice, thin polarizer

By

from Washington, DC  -  Photo Enthusiast

This is very well made and very thin polarizer that produces no vignetting issues. The same lens cap for your lens fits over this polarizer when it's on the lens (this wasn't always the case, since the older thicker polarizers sometimes flared out a few millimeters so as to prevent vignetting).

Nikon 72mm Circular Polarizer II

By

from Dublin, Ohio  -  Photo Enthusiast

To be quite honest I have not figured out how to use this lens. I can see the effect of the lens by holding it in front of my lcd monitor and turning it until my screen goes black but as far as any affect on my pictures I cannot tell. The only reason I say no I would not reccommend it is because I don't know how to use it.

I've used it around water and grass that are washed out by the bright sun and it worked extremely well in both cases.
