            By Bonggo

            from Virginia

            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.

                Comments about Nikon 52mm Clear NC Glass Filter:

                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.

                              Very clear. I don't notice any difference in the amount (or properties) of the light that reaches the sensor with it off or on.

                              One drawback is that ghosting occurs if there is a bright light (like a light bulb in an otherwise dim room) in the image frame. But these aren't common conditions.

                              Another drawback is that the surface of the filter attracts dust more easily than the lens.

                                Comments about Nikon 52mm Clear NC Glass Filter:

                                I bought this filter to protect one of my objective I like best: the Nikkor 50mm f/1.2 AI-S. The filter is excellent and maintains the same quality of products I buy the brand since 1988, ie, I am more pleased with this product from Nikon.

                                  Comments about Nikon 52mm Clear NC Glass Filter:

                                  I put one on every new lens I get. Protects and reduces the number of times I have to clean the lens. Much easier to clean a filter than a lens. I prefer to stay with the manufacturers filters.
