      Comments about Nikon 52mm Clear NC Glass Filter:

      Great protection for your lens without degrading the image quality. The Nikon clear filters are made from the same optical glass as the lens elemnts.Beware of counterfeit NC filters from China being sold on e[@]. Buy from B&H if you want to be sure you are getting the genuine Nikon product!

                Comments about Nikon 52mm Clear NC Glass Filter:

                Bought this filter with primary purpose to protect the front element of my lens. Image remains sharp all the time. Nothing could go wrong with Nikon filters. I would always recommend buying these filters to protect your investments, especially on higher end lenses. And don't look on other brands of which i made a mistake of buying one before.

                    Using this to protect the lens, screw on to lens and forget it's there, doesn't interfere with image quality at all. Recommend NC filters for all lenses.

                      Haven't really compared this filter to the generic brands, don't think I ever will. I have a nice nikon DSLR, and only top of the line product will do. This filter is so clear that if it wasn't for the rim, you wouldn't even notice it. Must buy!!

                          I'm using this on a Nikon 35mm f/1.8 G DX
                          Amazing Filter, the coating does really work, without the filter, I see ghosts, but with it on, it removes them about 80% of the time and the other 20% is always lower than if the glass was bare. I also think that it is a great way to protect from fingerprint smears or accidental breakage of the lens. The first time I opened up the box, I could not see the lens until I turned it like 85degrees against me.
