      Just received so I have not used much. Price seems fair for very good glass and thin design.

        Great filter...bought for my wide angle lens. Good quality, bit pricey, but you get what you pay for.

          i took this out to yellowstone since i had sold my previous polarizer with an older lens. a buddy said the nikon polarizers were the best, especially for the price and so i decided to try it. seemed to work well, and i had no complaints at all when using it.

            Comments about Nikon 77mm Circular Polarizer II Filter:

            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.

                Have used it for some water shots in the sun and it cuts reflections nicely. Makes for bluer skies. Nice effects. Screws in easily and takes lens cap with no problem.

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

                    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.

                          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.

                                    A great Circular Polarizer II Filter from Nikon. This filter is very slim and allow you to still use the lens cap with out problems. Plus is multi coated

                                        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.
