This Nikon 40.5mm Drop-in Circular Polarizing Filter helps to reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface. It is made specifically to fit within the accessory filter slot of the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 400mm f/2.8E FL ED VR Lens whose front diameter is too large to accommodate a screw-on filter. With that lens, the effect of this filter occurs behind the main glass elements instead of in front of them.

The light from the sun naturally becomes partially polarized due to reflecting off electrons in air molecules, causing the light to scatter into what appears as haze. A polarizing filter arranges, and filters, this directionally polarized light perpendicularly to the reflected light, allowing for the absorption of much of this light. This results in a noticeable reduction of glare and reflections from non-metallic surfaces and an increase in the saturation of skies and foliage.

A circular polarizer only differs from a linear polarizer in that it contains a quarter wave plane in addition to the linear polarizing filter. The addition of this quarter wave plane is to circularly polarize the linearly polarized light for the use of auto focus and exposure functions. Due to how the light is broken down and filtered with a linear polarizer, auto focus and exposure accuracy become skewed during use. When the light becomes circularly polarized, it permits the use of these functions.

This filter includes an integrated locking mechanism to secure it within the compatible lens, as well as an external dial to allow rotation of the filter glass for control of the polarization effect.

Helps to reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface.
Polarizing filters arrange and filter directionally polarized light perpendicular to the reflected light, allowing for the absorption of much of the light.
Clears up haze in distant landscapes and provides more saturated, vivid colors.
Strongest effect when used at a 90° angle from the sun.
Circular polarizers are ideal for use with digital cameras and autofocus lenses where a linear polarizer will often disrupt auto exposure and focus features.
2 to 4x filter factor reduces exposure by approximately 1 to 2 stops.

    40.5mm Drop-in Circular Polarizing Filter for Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 400mm f/2.8E FL ED VR Lens is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from No storage case This is the first expensive filter that I have ever purchased that did not include any kind of protective covering or pouch. It will not be easy to find proper, dust free storage for this Drop-in Circular Polarizing Filter because of the shape. Bad on you Nikon!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent product Excellent product. Disappointed it did not come with a pouch for storage. Wish I did not have to buy it as I already had the 52mm. Why Nikon didn't maintain the same size for these lenses doesn't make sense.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from A little more cheaply made. The new 40.5 drop-in polarizer is just not the same as the old reliable we came to know. It is much simpler to use, with a thumb wheel on the side, but just by looking at it you know you don't want it in your VERY EXPENSIVE supertelephoto lens out in the weather.it appears as though water will go right into your lens through it, and indeed, Nikon warns against it's use in these conditions. My new 400 2.8E looks to be very weather sealed, and will soon be tested in Northern BC but this filter will only be used on the sunniest if days.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works on two lenses I cannot believe it...Nikon made the same polarizing filter unit for the 400F2.8E and the 600 F4.0E. This has never happened for me to have such an item fit two lenses. All in all the filter and the insert work great. Putting it in the lens is very easy but be sure not to misplace the regular filter as the 400 and 600 require the use of the regular filter.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from No case? I have yet to use it in the field as there is no way to safely carry it around. Some kind of protective fitted plastic container would have been really nice & not that costly to supply with the filter. For some reason Nikon also decided that adding any kind of water seals to a very expensive filter made for a $10,000. lens was unnecessary.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from No filter box ? Nothing wrong with the filter but I can't understand that Nikon supplies such a fragile item without a box, only some soft wrapping material.
