Just got back from a Yosemite trip and had a chance to use these filters. The pola was great, it did just what it was supposed to. Glass was nice, rings were solid, threads were good. It also came with a nice Tiffen soft case for the pola filter, which was a unexpected bonus. It didn't come with one for the UV, but that's okay.

My only gripe is that sometimes it's a little difficult to get the pola off because the mounting ring is thin, but it's better than having be too easy I suppose.

I feel it was a good balance of price and quality

I just received the AF-S NIKKOR 24-120mm ED VR lense from B&H. This 77mm Tiffen twin pack was included as no extra charge. At first I thought that was so nice of B&H to include this bonus with my purchase. But as it turns out, including this filter pack was a mistake on B&H's part as it just led to a waste of my time. The UV Protection filter flares excessively and should be recycled rather than used in any optical system. I just replaced this inferior filter with the Nikon 77mm Clear NC Glass Filter, which functions beautifully. I doubt I will ever try the Tiffen Circular Polarizing filter as Tiffen has such a black eye from producing the junky UV Proetction filter.

          The use forever with my 24-105mm lens, the difference of a polarizer note with a crystal quality as the product.

            I seem to always lose my polarizers because they don't screw on and stay on or they get stuck on and they are hard to get off. Not with these. I can do more in lighter situations

            I needed and new UV filter and saw this sweet deal to score 2 filters for the price of one, and with a storage pouch. The filters work as they are supposed to and well worth the deal.

                    I purchased this product primarily to protect my 28-300mm 1:3.5-5.6G Nikkor.

                    The product is of good quality and feels fairly substantial.

                    I cannot attest to affect of the filters on IQ.

                        I use the UV protector primary to protect the glass. Its so clear and clean, and creates great lens flare if the lighting is just right.The poloarizing filter is incredible! I pop it on for outdoor shoots and it really makes the colors pop! It also is great for glare reduction.Overall great filters, Tiffen makes really nce stuff!

                              This is a two filters pack, and both of the filters are useful. One UV should be put onto lens for protection purpose, another one will eliminate light reflection while you shoot against glass or lake.

                                Both filters feel a bit flimsy, but as long as they keep doing their job things will just be fine. The UV filters never leave their home and since I shoot mostly during the golden hours, the CPV doesn't leave its case much since the polarizer works best when the sun is high in the sky.

                                    The polarizinf ilter in this pack seems to be great quality however the UV filter seems like it is not worth using unless in very low light.
                                    Even in simpole indirect sunlight situation I get crazy lens flare problems which go away as soon as the filter is off.
                                    I have on other filter I spent a bit more on and don't havr this problem at all.

                                        Received this as part of the Nikon lens purchase. Decent but not great. Heavy filters that will protect the lens until I get a decent filter soon.

                                          I needed to cover my new 70-200 f2.8 and did a lot of shopping around for price. While I didn't want to spend a fortune, I wanted good quality, and not a junky filter. This one is pretty good and comes bundled with a circular polarizer as a bonus.
