I know Nikon makes awesome glass, and after spending really big bucks on a new VR lens, getting the best quality filter on the front of it to protect it is a no brainer.

This filter is well built and the optic quality is excellent and what you'd expect from premium Nikon glass...

I DO wish Nikon charged a little bit less for what is only a protective filter, but you get what you pay for and when you are paying for a top-level lens, it is foolish to skimp on a cheap filter that could hurt optic performance.

So be smart and order your clear filter the same time as you get your lens and put it on your lens the instant you unpack them both for safe insurance...

PS - In over 25 years as a working pro photographer, I can not count the number of lenses I have seen saved from total ruin by simply having a filter on the front end. I've also seen many expensive lenses ruined because they did NOT have a filter and the front element took the abuse of liquids, impact, etc. Be smart - practice safe photography and put a filter on it! :-)

I have to rate this product with a single star as it just didn't last. It came apart a few months after I bought it. The filter was being used on one lens and the first time I removed it, it fell apart. I called Nikon and their response was that there is no warranty on filters and I would have to purchase another. I did but this time it was a Hoya.

                Plenty of arguments for and against the use of a filter.

                For me I just couldn't bare the though of the front element of the AF-S 85mm f1.4G lens exposed to the world.

                Bit the bullet and got the filter.

                  Bought this lens filter based on the reviews I read on several sites. After purchasing a new Nikon 12-24 I was not about to take away one iota of clarity with a cheap filter. So far I am very happy with the results.

                    I don't like anything between my expensive Nikkor 18-300mm lens and subject and this filter is the closest to that. It is recommended by many pros including Moose Peterson. I love this filter. It is expensive but then, you get what you pay for.

                      Pricey but then not when protecting pro quality Nikon lenses

                            There are many filter manufacturers with a range of pricing, but why should one stick with OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) instead of after market ones when it come to filters?

                            1. Color matching. A given manufacturer color match their elements for the best performance, thus when the filter is being made, tolerance in thickness, light transmission index is under strict control. I used to use other brands that are usually cheaper, but under the best of circumstances they are a tad shy in maintaining steady performance, and sometimess resulting in unexpected color shift.

                            2. This is a thin mount filter, a slight annoyance is that there is a very slight movement of the glass detected in the ring. I think this is a manufacturing issue, perhaps the mounting ring is thin therefore it is not as rigid.

                            3. Filters are protective investment, a small price to pay should something hit the front element. This is a good common sense product.

                            4. The only reason I give it a 4 and not 5 star is the price. I wish it were lower.

                                I would never spend several thousand $ on a lens and not protect the front element. Having said that, I would also not spend a lot of money on a lens and place a cheap piece of glass in front of it. Remember, the quality of your lens is limited by the quality of your filter. Period. Remember the 'weakest link' theory. Therefore, if you use a cheap filter on your expensive lens, you are now shooting through a cheap lens. Don't scrimp on your protective filter!

                                    I purchased this filter to use on my brand new 70-200 VR2..I wanted to be sure that I kept a filter on the front of my new investment. I never used filters in the past...I would just "clean" my lenses carefully..But now after seeing that there is "no" difference in quality of pics ..I'm so pleased.. Now I can rest easy and know that all I have to do is clean the outer filter glass..Also,,it's made by Nikon..doesn't it make sense to put Nikon filters with Nikon glass?? I think so..and you won't be disappointed.. I'm now a "filter" user..

                                      Comments about Nikon 77mm Clear NC Glass Filter:

                                      I bought this filter to protect the front glass of the lens. It is much easier to clean the filter rather than the lens itself.
                                      This filter is listed in the Nikon booklet as recomended filter for protection. It is a clear filter (basically a very expensive piece of glass) so, as it should be, it does not affect the quality of the pictures. It is the only filter I was able to find that does not really "filter" anything (UV etc).

                                        Comments about Nikon 77mm Clear NC Glass Filter:

                                        I have up to now been very cautious about adding any filters to a quality lens to avoid compromising the optics. As a Nikon shooter, I have stuck to their slimline circular polarizers over other brands. I recently brought the classic pair of 2.8's; the 24-70 & 70-200 so looked again at a clear glass filter for added, long term protection. All the reviews on this site of this filter were positive, with no image distortion being seen. So that did it. And yes, I can see no degredation in image quality with this filter in place. So for expensive glass I have three suggetions for a long life: use the lens hood, keep it clean and add this filter.
