The 77mm 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

      Comments about Nikon 77mm Circular Polarizer II Filter:

      I find this to be perfect, very sharp, and very good at handling reflections. As a car photographer, I need the best CPL I can get to bring out the color of the car, and I don't see myself needing to upgrade past this one.

      I do use the 77mm filter on a 67mm lens, and I have noticed that sometimes it becomes loose while rotating it, however it seems like it's just from my grip, and I'll get used to gripping it differently. Something to definitely be careful for though.

          Comments about Nikon 77mm Circular Polarizer II Filter:

          You cannot go wrong with this circular Polarizer, it works magic. Cheaper Polarizers do not give the same results in detail, color, and reflection control as well as this one. Images come out gorgeous, not sort of ok, like most other CPL's do. The machining is fantastic, and screws on deeply, assuring no drop off, like some other CPL's are famous for. If you want great pictures, get this filter. If you don't really care, choose something lesser and your images will be the result.

            Solid performer for landscape photographer. I have used this in variable outdoor conditions from full sun to cloudy conditions. The filter provided the perfect definition to clouds, screening out haze and giving the sky a deeper blue.

                        Compared to another multi-coated CPL that came packaged with my 24-70mm, the Nikon CPL provides very similar color and glare reduction. Where this one separates itself from the other is when shooting through glass, for example. Where the packaged CPL produced bluish-purple reflections in the image, the Nikon filter produced none - images were clean from any artifacts.

                              If you buy a filter for an expensive lens buy one that does not deteriorate the image. Nikon filters stand the test just great.

                                Comments about Nikon 77mm Circular Polarizer II Filter:

                                Used this filter at an outdoor wedding. It minimized glare and excessive contrast on people's faces. Picture editing was easier. The skies were blue rather than blown out. It is lighter, thinner and was more effective than the Hoya polarizing filter I have used for several years.

                                    The 77mm CP II Filter from Nikon is perfectly match and looks great on my AF-S Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8G ED Zoom lens. It does great job as it is advertising.

                                      Got this filter for use with an 80-200 to augment deep blue in scenics with the sky as a backdrop (mostly rock climbing pics.) Couldn't be happier. I think Nikon quality and consistency in their filters is superior to other brands.

                                        It's Nikon's very own solution for your polarizer needs. There are other great filters out there, but this one is the one I'm keeping, it's not hard to clean and stays screwed-on with a little extra effort. It's adjustable and smooth, just be sure you grab the front of the filter to adjust the intensity.
