UV filters are very popular recommendations for lens protection with many retailers. The problem is that they tend to diminish resolution even with the more expensive alternatives. For years I went without this added protection because of the distortion. For some reason I was unaware of the clear Nikon filter, then came across it at B&H. Bought one each for my 24-70 and 70-200 Nikkor lenses and am delighted with the distortion-free protection.

I have to rate this product with a single star as it just didn't last. It came apart a few months after I bought it. The filter was being used on one lens and the first time I removed it, it fell apart. I called Nikon and their response was that there is no warranty on filters and I would have to purchase another. I did but this time it was a Hoya.

Clear as a bell

Comments about Nikon 77mm Clear NC Glass Filter:

I selected the Nikon NC filter for my Nikkor 85mm lens, using a D800 Nikon camera. Shooting with the filter and lens over the weekend in Buffalo, NY. The colour captured was excellent -- much better than using UV filters to protect my lenses. I got it at B&H on sale. Excellent filter at a great price. Cheers.

Comments about Nikon 77mm Clear NC Glass Filter:

Seems to work fine on my 24-120mm Nikon zoom. This Nikon filter is well-made with a metal rim and what seems to be quality glass and no defects detected. I stick with Nikon and Hoya.

A small price to pay for peace of mind

By MarkC

Comments about Nikon 77mm Clear NC Glass Filter:

This Nikon NC glass filter is certainly expensive relative to alternative 77mm clear glass filters from other brands. But then why scrimp on a few dollars when you choose to pay a premium for a Nikon lens?
As to the question, "Why use an NC filter in the first place?" Relative to the repair or replacement of a damaged front element on a lens, this is a small price to pay for peace of mind.

Invisible

Comments about Nikon 77mm Clear NC Glass Filter:

I tested this clear filter on my Nikon 300 D/TC14 combo and it is invisible. Recent photo gear website test reports also show that its efficiency is higher than most filters, even those costing twice as much. Excellent product and value.

Don't Leave Home Without it

By Oliver

Comments about Nikon 77mm Clear NC Glass Filter:

These are great. I have one on my 16-35mm f/4, 24-70mm f/2.8, 70-200mm f/2.8 and any / al other lenses that take a 77mm filter. I dropped my camera with the 24-70 on a hardwood floor a while back. It hit on the edge of the filter and busted the filter. The filter saved the lens, though.

I have Nikon NC filters on ALL my lenses, regardless of size, so that totals out to about 20 lenses, total

It really is clear

By Thomas

Verified Buyer

Comments about Nikon 77mm Clear NC Glass Filter:

I stopped using UV filters when I found they affect the color of purple and/or blue flowers and just went with clear. It's used as a front-lens element protector which really is why people get the UV filter. As such, it does as advertised. Almost no reflections - the coating is good.

Better than a UV filter

By David

from undisclosed

Verified Buyer

Comments about Nikon 77mm Clear NC Glass Filter:

Or use this filter to protect my lens. I find no distortion and no interference with my work. The filter is delicate as I have broken one with a tap against a wall. This is better than a UV filter because it doesn't affect clarity or color for future work in Lightroomroom and Photoshop. I highly recommend this filter.

Clearly Gets the Job Done

By Human.Life.Photography

Comments about Nikon 77mm Clear NC Glass Filter:

I am a working photographer and protecting my equipment is essential! This NC filter does a great job without interfering with the light in the room or the white balance of my camera. A bit pricy but we all know phtography is nof for the cash strapped or faint of wallet.

  • Strong Construction

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Lens Protection

    Comments about Nikon 77mm Clear NC Glass Filter:

    I have Nikon's NC Glass Filters on all of my lenses when not using another filter. It's a whole lot cheaper to spend $30-$60 on a filter than $1000+ on a new lens. Shooting through this filter produces photos as if it's not even on, extremely clear. Even though I'm extremely careful with my investments, you never know what might happen!

        I use this filter all the time to help protect the glass on my lenses. It's basic, but exactly what I need for my type of photography. It allows me to stack other filters on top of it, which I like layering filters.
