This is my frist polarizer filter. Looks good, and is thin considering that this filter is two rings in one. One ring screws to the lens. The other ring holds the glass in place and rotates in the ring which screws to the lens. Both rings together are about 3/16" thick. Rotation is smooth. I was thinking about buying a case for the filter but read in another review that it came with a nice case. The plastic case is just big enough not to get lost in the camera bag and should protect the filter very well. All I know about polarizers is from the use of sun glasses. There is a big difference in how well they work. I'm sure there's a big difference in how well polarizers for camera lenses work too. I bought this filter because I don't know much about them. I feel comfortable that I will get quailty, and good value for the money with Nikon products.

I've been a Nikon guy but this is just not as good as the original Nikon circular polarizer that I also use. It is light weight and thin and does help avoid vignetting at wide angles though so that is a plus. Not a must have for the price but a solid buy if you need one and you are worried about size/weight and you shoot a lot of wide angle work.

it gives pleasing, deep and rich blue color to sky.
and absorbs the over exposed lighting from clouds, so it gives that pop out 3d look to them

Filter is by Nikon and does its job. The surprise was that it was available at B&H for approximately 50% less than on Amazon. Thanks, B&H!

        Comments about Nikon 67mm Circular Polarizer II Filter:

        A Circular polarizing filter gives you the option of adjusting the degree of light to be filtered without changing the layout of the camera.(i.e. horizontal to landscape and vice versa) A simple a simple rotation of filter can change a hazy sky to blue without distorting the color. I'm a little apprehensive about the thickness of the filter, but there is no question about the results.

          Used for 70-300mm VR, when needed. (B+W UV is the always-on protection filter)Adequately strong polarizer effect, front piece easy to rotate yet still not too tight.Anodized Aluminum frame feels less sturdy than B+W's brass frame. Sometime it is difficult to dismount. I have not had the need to clean it yet so don't know how easy it is to clean the filter without leaving liquid marks.

            Highly recommended accessory for shooting outdoors in bright sunlight. It is a 'Must' accessory. Colors are move vivid, reflections are decreased and detail is better. I'm going to get one of each size to match my lenses.

                  This Nikon 67mm Polarizer II filter uses optically flat glass that does not add much aberration to the photo. Here is the Southwest where we have lots of sunshine, it is sometimes important and when the light is just right, the polarizing filter is a must. I hope the 72mm Nikon polarizer is just as good because I need one for another Nikon lens! Also, this polarizer will allow for about 1.5 f-stops of light attenuation if required. I just like Nikon quality! Placing a [$] filter on a $1000 lens is not a bad idea if you need to protect the lens and don't have a UV filter handy.Kinda makes sense not to put a $10 polarizer on a $1000 lens attached to a $1500 camera body....doesn't it???

                        I am very happy with this polarizer. It is thin enough that I can use a Lee filter holder with wide angle adapter over it on my 16-85 lens with no vignetting. I have tested it on my lens and it seems to have no effect on sharpness. Does what a polarizer should.

                                  Highly recommend. For landscape photography, greatly reduces blown-out sky. Besides functioning as a circular polarizer, filter may also function beneficially as a 1 to 2-stop neutral density filter -- to tame the brightest parts of a photo (such as background sky), so exposure throughout frame fits within dynamic range of camera. With both the lens-hood and polarizer mounted on my 16-85mm DX Nikkor, I can turn polarizer with thumb and index finger.
