Combining two of the most useful filters available, Luminesque's 77mm Circular Polarizer and UV Slim PRO Filter Kit is well-suited to all forms of photography. Both filters are constructed from Schott optical glass and feature a 12-layer multi-coating for maintained clarity and image quality. Each filter is also set in an anodized aluminum filter ring, with the UV filter featuring a slim 3.4mm-thick profile to lessen the likelihood of vignetting with wide-angle lenses.

The UV filter is a general use, clear filter that helps to absorb ultraviolet light and reduce the bluish cast of daylight. It is also useful as a general protective filter to leave on lenses at all times in order to reduce dust and moisture from reaching the front lens element and to provide additional protection in case of accidental impacts. Its 12-layer multi-coating also helps to achieve 98.2% light transmission for faithful color reproduction and contrast.

The circular polarizer filter helps to reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface. This results in a noticeable increase in the saturation of skies and foliage, as well as clearer imagery when photographing in hazy conditions. A circular polarizer differs from a linear polarizer in that it supports full use of a camera's autofocus and auto exposure functions.

Luminesque PRO
  • Constructed from Schott optical glass for maintained image quality and clarity.
  • A 12-layer multi-coating helps to reduce surface reflections and glare for improved contrast and color neutrality.
  • Anodized aluminum filter rings feature a knurled top edge for easier installation and removal.
UV Slim Filter
  • Absorbs UV light and reduces bluish cast of daylight for greater image clarity.
  • Clear filter provides no additional coloration or contrast, allowing you to pair this filter with others.
  • Works as general protection filter to reduce dust, moisture, and scratches from reaching the front lens element.
  • 12-layer multi-coating helps to realize a high light transmission rate of 98.2%.
  • Slim filter ring incorporates front threads and measures 3.4mm-thick to lessen the likelihood of vignetting when used on wide-angle lenses.
Circular Polarizer Filter
  • Reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface.
  • Arrange and filter directionally polarized light perpendicularly to the reflected light allowing for the absorption of much of the light.
  • Lessens haze in distant landscapes and provides more saturated, vivid colors.
  • Strongest effect when used at a 90° from the sun.

    77mm Circular Polarizer and UV Slim PRO Filter Kit is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 227.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Garbage First, I value B&H highly and have made many purchases here over the years. This is the first time that I got greatly disappointed. I got this kit free with the purchase of aNikon 24-70 mm f/2.8 lens. The UV filter arrived with a gouge in it. The polarizer has either a stress point near the metal ring or a defective coating on it as it produced stripes across the viewer/image. I received the kit the day before I left for a trip. Threw the UV filter away upon arrival, the polarizer one day later. To the B&H folks: Don't offer low quality free stuff with the purchase of high quality lenses or gear. If somebody spends north of $1,500 for a lens, do you really think they are impressed with this stuff?

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good if Free But Not Worth Buying I received these free with a Nikon 70-200 VR II. The polarizer is not color neutral; it muddies my colors slightly. There are also higher transmission circular polarizes out there. The multicoatings on both are decent, but not as easy to clean as the B+W filters I normally buy. The quality of the filter rings is also not as high as the B+Ws. Then again, the B+W filters are much more expensive. All in all, these are not bad filters considering they're often free with a lens purchase. If you don't already have or truly need something better, these are adequate for most general purposes. In the grand scheme of quality though, they aren't all that.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Very Good I use these filters as drink coasters on my desk! The polarizer filter degrades the clarity and sharpness of the lens. It also casts a slight goldish tint to your image. The threads aren't deep enough to easily screw onto your lens. The rotation is not smooth. It's difficult to unscrew compared to other filters I've used. It says it's made with schott glass, which would normally indicate quality. That is not the case. I didn't bother using the uv filter yet. Also, the polarizing effect is lacking. I received this as a part of a high quality lens purchase. I would not purchase this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life Saver I have been using UV and skylight filters as lens protectors for decades, but never really needed them until recently. I got the new Nikon D5, put my 70-210 zoom on it, and took it to a local park with my dog to test the camera out. At one point, I was carrying the camera and lens by the lens barrel with the camera's neck strap hanging down. The dog ran past me, spearing her head through the strap. She ripped the camera out of my hand and then proceeded to drag it and the lens for about 50 yards down a trail, through some mud, into the woods and over some logs before I could stop her. When I got home and cleaned the dirt off, amazingly everything survived. There wasn't a scratch on my lens, camera ... or even the filter. The biggest surprise though was that the camera kept taking pictures as the dog ran away with it. The shutter activated every time the camera bumped something on the ground. When I downloaded the images, I found that my dog had taken about 20 perfectly focused shots from very unique angles. She does need to work on her composition a bit, though.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Useless polarizer First time I attempted to use the polarizer on my new Nikon 70-200 it was obvious it's either defective or just awful quality. The image goes out of focus on the right side of the frame in a bit of a swirling pattern. One star is too high. I recd it free with the lens so no loss but it proves the point: always test new gear before trusting it.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from The worse filter you can buy!!! I received this polarizer filter because I purchased the Canon 70-200 L USM II lens so I thought I'd give it a try. What a mistake, looking through the lens all the edges were blurry. When I took off the filter everything was sharp and crystal clear like I expect it. If I could give this zero stars I would. If you are looking for a quality no color cast polarizing filter look at the Breakthrought Photography X4 CPL filter.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not as good as B+W I received the filters free with the purchase of a Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8 lens. I compared the polarizing filter to the B+W 77mm Kaesemann Circular Polarizer MRC (B&H code BWKCPMC77) that I already have. Both distort color, turning, e.g., white clouds to a disagreeable brownish tint. When held up side by side to the sky, the Luminesque Circular Polarizer is noticeably worse in this regard than the B+W. The diglloyd blog says that the B+W is a high quality circular polarizer; I've no other information on its quality. I'll carry the Luminesque Circular Polarizer in my travel camera bag: On some rare occasion it might do something useful. I have not tested the UV filter. I am assuming that it is of similar poor quality. I'll keep it to use when in salt water spray at the beach.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Decent filters for the money These came with my Nikon 24-70 f2.8 lens I bought from B&H recently and they are very decent in build quality as well as their optical quality. I've tested both out recently and they both maintain the high optical quality of the lens without adding any unwanted distortion while doing their job as they were intended to do.
