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.

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.

    Comments about Nikon 77mm Clear NC Glass Filter:

    I have Nikon's NC Glass Filters on all of my lenses when not using another filter. It's a whole lot cheaper to spend $30-$60 on a filter than $1000+ on a new lens. Shooting through this filter produces photos as if it's not even on, extremely clear. Even though I'm extremely careful with my investments, you never know what might happen!

        Comments about Nikon 77mm Clear NC Glass Filter:

        I use this filter all the time to help protect the glass on my lenses. It's basic, but exactly what I need for my type of photography. It allows me to stack other filters on top of it, which I like layering filters.

                  Excellent glass and construction for protecting the lens. Great value for protecting the full cost of a lens if damage should occur to the front lens.

                        I'm a professional photographer and the first thing I do with any new lens is to screw a Nikon clear glass filter on it. At the last lens purchase, the store was out of Nikon brand and I had to use another well-known brand. This other filter lasted about 2 months and the retaining ring came out and would not reassemble properly. So without hesitation, I ordered the Nikon one.

                          I use this filter on my 24-120 f4 Nikkor as a lens protector. It screws in easily and does not interfere with the lens hood mount. The lens cap clips on easily as well. I know there are less expensive filters but I prefer to use Nikon glass. Delivery was next day at no charge.

                            Nikon quality is worth the difference. Besides the glass, the lens cap using other filters pops off easily whereas the Nikon stays firmly attached.

                              Use one of these on all my lens for protection from the elements.

                                Seems well constructed and threaded easily onto my 24-120 Nikon lens. I also didn't have any issues with the lens cap. As far as telling if it is quality glass, I really have no way of knowing other than to say my photos look fine.

                                Comments about Nikon 77mm Clear NC Glass Filter:

                                I bought the filter mostly to protect my invest of glass. I am very happy with the security I feel and the quality of the filter does not change the high quality of my nikon lens.
