        I RECENTLY PURCHASED A NIKON 18- 200MM DX LENS.
        I PURCHASED THE NIKON FILTER TO PROTECT THE NIKON LENS.
        WHEN I PUT IT ON THE LENS, THE EDGE OF THIS FILTER FELT WELL MADE, ALSO, IT THREADED ON EASILY AND MORE IMPORTANTLY WAS EASILY REMOVED. THE PHOTOS ARE CLEAR.

          Comments about Nikon 72mm Clear NC Glass Filter:

          In the film days my standard lens filter was an A2 on everything. Today with digital it's the NC. This is the finest clear filter in it's price range and far less expensive to replace than the front lens element in case of accidental impact or environmental debris flying around during extreme conditions assignments.

              Great protection without adding color which a UV or Skylight filter does
              Pricey but then not when protecting pro quality Nikon lenses
              I put one on every new lens I get and there it stays

              The filter looks fine. I use it to protect my lens. I have not owned non-Nikon filters. So I cannot tell if this is worse or better that other brand filters. A good price at B&H compared to Nikon USA site.

                    Comments about Nikon 72mm Clear NC Glass Filter:

                    I'm a novice photographer, but right away I found out that lenses can get dirty fast. There are photographers that don't want unnecessary glass in front of their lens, and I've seen evidence that even noticeable scratches won't make a big difference in the actual shot, but cleaning the lens often made me uneasy so I figured I'd rather clean this filter instead. Comes with a sturdy translucent plastic case that's a smidge bigger than it needs to be. Doesn't affect color that I can see. Don't know enough to say whether the reflection coating is doing it's job but it seems to be. I find that I clean the filter less than I did the lens it protects: the dust seems to stay off it better, though I could be imagining that. The frame seems very strong. I should mention the grooves along the outside edge: while they make it super easy to get the filter off, their fine, rough cut makes it harder to clean out the dust and dirt that gets trapped in them.

                        Clear filter used as protector over zoom lens; already has taken some mud spray and one minor bump with no damage and an easy clean. Easy to install. Would buy again.

                          This product does exactly what I wanted. It is opticaly clear and does not effect the shots in any way. Keeping in mind that any filter will affect the amount of light hitting the sensor.

                            I purchased a Panasonic HPX250 camcorder and before I took it out on a shoot, I had to make sure the lens was protected. This NC Glass Filter by Nikon is distortion free yet acts like a buffer, protecting the lens surface from dust, scratches, etc. I always keep one on the camcorder and one as a back-up.

                                      I love this filter. Great, crisp, clear pictures. Worth the expense. Had a couple, cheaper brands before and honestly, I love that the lens cap stays put and isn't always popping off.
