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.

      Great clear filter for protecting quality lenses. Since there is no color to the filter you don't need to worry about making any corrections. The glass is quality glass and really doesn't impact the quality of the picture when using professional lenses.

          Comments about Nikon 77mm Clear NC Glass Filter:

          UV filters are very popular recommendations for lens protection with many retailers. The problem is that they tend to diminish resolution even with the more expensive alternatives. For years I went without this added protection because of the distortion. For some reason I was unaware of the clear Nikon filter, then came across it at B&H. Bought one each for my 24-70 and 70-200 Nikkor lenses and am delighted with the distortion-free protection.

              A clear protective filter is one of the most important protective devices that you can have for any and every lens. Spending hundreds if not thousands of dollars for a lens and not protecting it from scratches, dirt, the elements seems almost crazy. A must have for every lens!

                I purchased this filter to protect my new 77mm lens. The construction is solid, the glass is clear with no hazing on the edges. Mounting went smoothly, and the filter fits snuggly with no movement. When I remove the filter to use another filter (to avoid vignetting), the filter removes relatively easily (as long as I don't overtighten).

                  High quality clear filter for lens protection. Installs smoothly on pro lenses. It's better to clean pollen, dust, spray or splashes off of this optical-grade filter than the front of the lens.

                    When I purchase Nikkor lenses, as a matter of personal preference, I always buy a Nikon Clear NC Glass filter to protect the front element. The Nikon filters are well made and feel heavier than the less expensive models. Yes, they are somewhat expensive, but they last and provide protection for many years.

                          I have always purchased UV or Clear filters for lens protection however, the photo is only as good as the quality of the lens (and filter). I cannot afford specs and spots that may be very time consuming in post production...the solution? - Nikon NC - EXTREMELY well made and optically perfect, I wouldn't gamble to save a few bucks, SO not worth the chance.

                              Not much to review about a filter. This is a great filter, optically perfect, slim, no vignette. It seems that there is some discussion about whether or not to use a filter to protect a lens. Is the protection worth some interference by another piece of glass in between the sensor and the subject? In my experience,heck yeah. Why do you think I'm replacing this filter. A scratch on a $ dollar filter or a scratch on the surface of an 80-400. No question for me.

                                    Comments about Nikon 77mm Clear NC Glass Filter:

                                    I use it as lens protector for my 7-200/f2.8 Nikon zoom lens, and effects on lens and pictures are negligible. A bit more expansive than other brands, but I do not want to put any other filters on my prime lens rather than Nikon.
