Product Highlights
  • Multi-Coated
  • Slimmer Design Than Original Design
  • Front/Rear Threads Same Size
  • Makes a Blue Sky Bluer
  • Enhances Cloud Formations
  • Eliminates Reflections in Glass, Water
  • Rotating Front Ring
  • Black Filter Ring

The 58mm Circular Polarizer II Filter from Nikon is an upgraded version of the original Nikon Circular Polarizer. This filter is now slimmer in design leaving the front and rear threads the same size as opposed to the original version that featured a larger front thread. The filter is now multi-coated which is a benefit in that it minimizes any flare and glare that reaches the sensor or film plane of your camera. This means more saturation and clearer images that are more crisp and contrasty.

The front ring rotates with the polarization visible in the viewfinder or on your LCD screen. When shooting on a bright day, this means you can control the "blueness" of the sky as well as having control of how distinct you want the cloud formations. For the outdoor shooter, this filter is a must since it is the only way to make a blue sky bluer. In addition, when shooting into water or glass, you can minimize or eliminate the reflections often associated with landscape or scenic photography. Therefore, if you're shooting a store window or inside a museum into a showcase, glass obstructions will no longer be a problem. A polarizer tends to have its maximum effect when used at right angle to the sun. A polarizing filter, along with a UV filter should be a part of everyone's gear.

Note! Circular polarizers are specifically designed for use with auto-focus SLR cameras (They will also work on manual systems without problems)

This version of the filter is now slimmer than the original version that had a larger front thread. Presently, both front and rear threads are the same size
The glass is now multi-coated minimizing flare and glare on the sensor or film plane
Effective with cameras that use beam splitters in the path of the TTL light meter and with AF cameras
This filter eliminates ultraviolet rays from outdoor shots as well as polarizing the light to remove reflections, and increase color saturation, without affecting the overall color balance

      I don't use it all of the time, but it definitely does a fantastic job removing polarized reflections from certain surfaces.

        This is the second one I've purchased from Nikon. I have the 67mm as well. Both work much more smoothly than my 77mm B+W. They do the job and do not get in the way.

                            I bought this filter for my new Nikon D5100, I have owned it for one month and it has performed up to my (high) expectations. I decided to go with the Nikon after reading so-so reviews for cheaper off-brand polarizers. It attaches quickly and easily to my 55mm-300mm zoom lens and to my B&W 52mm to 58mm step up ring (that allows it to fit onto my 18mm-55mm Nikon lens that came with the camera). It rotates smoothly and provides uniform filtering across the entire lens.

                                    What to say? It's basically a lens saver. Having said that, it does what it's supposed to do very well. High quality glass as is expected as well as overall construction. The slim designation means you can normally slap on a slim polarizer or other filter on front of it without too much in the way of vignetting. You really can't afford not to put one of these on every lens you have.

                                        If you want a good CPL (circular polarizer) filter.
                                        Nikon CPL Filter II can be recommended.

                                        Even the included filter box is good.
