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 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:

      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.

                Great filter. I wish the ring was a little more sturdy feeling, but it is very thin and doesn't cause vignetting or color casting on a Tokina 11-16.

                    Why do I love this place, competitive pricing, fast shipment, packaged nicely, most of the items I order is always in stock.

                    Oh was I supposed to tell you about the product I ordered… well it is Nikon Circular Polarizer Filter 2 and just like all Nikon products it works great. Just a note I never had a bad Nikon Product nor have I ever had any thing that I was purchased from B and H broke.

                          I shoot with a Nikon D800 and my current CPL produced vignetting around the edge. This filter does not do it with the Nikon 17-35 mm. Additionally, it does allow attachment of the lens cover when camera is not being used. I've had no issues with filter getting stuck on lens.

                                I needed a new Circ. Polarizer for a recently acquired WA lens for my D7000. I purchased this Nikon Circ. Pol. because of its thinness and the expected high quality of the Nikon glass. I was not disappointed. The glass is of high quality, the sky is evenly darkened during use and in spite of a large hood and the thin construction I can still easily turn the polarizer when in use. Moreover the hood still fits onto the lens with the Polarizer attached. I am very pleased with this expensive but high quality 77mm Nikon Polarizer and would recommend it to anyone, especially if using a wide-angle lens.

                                        I've used the filter in bright sun and at sunset. It has allowed amazing cloud definition. I have noticed no distortion or flaring.

                                            With all of the hype surrounding other brand names I was a little leery of buying the Nikon Filter. My apprehension was unfounded. It has a nice smooth turning radius and the colors of the sky and clouds are very natural looking. Nice and slim so no vignetting. Accepts a lens cap and the cap stays on. It can be a little cumbersome to remove at times but I can live with that based on the overall quality of the filter.
