The 52mm Circular Polarizer II Filter from Nikon is an upgraded version of the original Nikon Circular Polarizer. This filter is now slimmer in design, leaving the front and rear threads the same size as opposed to the original version that featured a larger front thread. The filter is now multi-coated which is a benefit in that it minimizes any flare and glare that reaches the sensor or film plane of your camera. This means more saturation and clearer images that are more crisp and contrasty.

The front ring rotates with the polarization visible in the viewfinder or on your LCD screen. When shooting on a bright day, this means you can control the "blueness" of the sky as well as having control of how distinct you want the cloud formations. For the outdoor shooter, this filter is a must since it is the only way to make a blue sky bluer. In addition, when shooting into water or glass, you can minimize or eliminate the reflections often associated with landscape or scenic photography. Therefore, if you're shooting a store window or inside a museum into a showcase, glass obstructions will no longer be a problem. A polarizer tends to have its maximum effect when used at right angle to the sun. A polarizing filter, along with a UV filter should be a part of everyone's gear.

Note: Circular polarizers are specifically designed for use with auto-focus SLR cameras (They will also work on manual systems without problems)

This version of the filter is now slimmer than the original version that had a larger front thread. Presently, both front and rear threads are the same size
The glass is now multi-coated minimizing flare and glare on the sensor or film plane
Effective with cameras that use beam splitters in the path of the TTL light meter and with AF cameras
This filter eliminates ultraviolet rays from outdoor shots as well as polarizing the light to remove reflections, and increase color saturation, without affecting the overall color balance

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best On The Market Three reasons why this is by far the best CP on the market: One. It can be used with wide-angle lenses without narrowing of the field of view. The actual filter is slightly larger than the diameter of your filter mount. Two. Nikon uses a special process for applying the filter. I won't go into the technical aspects, but it makes it so the two pieces of glass can be ultra thin which reduces unwanted desharpening. Three. Most CP filters reduce the amount of light coming into your lens by around 2 stops. This one is barely over 1 stop. This CP is a must have for landscapes, cityscapes, haze, glare, reflection, rainbows, waterfalls, and any situation where you want to increase color saturation.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good choice: easy tu buy prompt deliver. The filter worked as expected. Most outstanding is how easy was to purchase it from B&H and how shortly I had it after I put the order. Thank you!. Patricio Herrera.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Filter I use this in bright sunlight or when I want to capture a certain mood. It adjusts easily to increase or decrease the polarization. I do have a bit of a problem attaching it: just when I think it's on straight and the threads aligned I find it is going on crooked and I have to back off and begin again. Not sure why the threads don't lock into the correct place more easily, however, this would not affect my decision to re-purchase this same item.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the trick Like everything Nikon, it's a bit pricey, but the usual B&H discount helps to lessen the blow. I dropped this filter on as soon as I got it and went outside on a cool clear day to shoot a couple of test shots of the oak trees around my house. So far, I like what I see. The sky is much more vivid and the trees really have rich contrasting color. As expected, you lose a couple of stops in the process but that is easily compensated for if you remember to do it. Overall, I think this was a very good purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice reliable CPL Nice glass from Nikon ,does not vignettes on most 52mm filter size Nikon lenses ,if your lens glass is large better to use 62mm with a B+W step up ring. Works fine on 50mm 1.4 AF-D ,55mm 2.8 AI-s ,24mm 2.8 AF-D ,35mm F1.8 AF-S G DX Works best on scattered clouds showing some blue sky patches. Shoot in RAW for getting more details ,this filter helps a lot for in camera touch up.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great landscape shots I had seen a tv show that suggested you buy a polarizer filter for landscape shots. My husband and I went to Big Bend National Park. I took pics with and without the filter. The filter really enhances your photos. Its easy off and on makes it great for interchanging with another lens.
