    Comments about Nikon 77mm Circular Polarizer II Filter:

    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.

    Quality Polarizer

      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.

                  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.

                            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.
