thanks guys. this is great information.....I will go with the lesser expensive, found out amazon doesn't carry that size in Nikon anyway...and I need two of the CPFs, a 58 and a 52, so will get both, and maybe one for my telephoto. I love the blue skys. Thanks mucho!
ps...just ordered three CPFs, a 58, a 52 and a 62. should cover all my bases. I am pumped. hopefully I can start posting a few photos by mid july, as I retire then, and want to do some hobby photography.
You know, by getting a stepdown/step up ring, you could get away with buying just one CPL. I recently bought a 77mm filter, and step down rings so i could use it with my 58mm lenses too. They only cost a buck or two!
Wow, thanks! There are nice folks here like yourself to help newbies. Would you suggest the expensive nikon circular pol. filter at over 80 bucks, or the cheaper Hoya or another cheaper one? I don't know if it is worth spending the big bucks....what do you think?
Well I use a Hama cheap circular polariser and it works all right. They're getting expensive as you go for larger diameter of the lens so mine is 58mm and works on kit level lenses only.
Got a tripod today, Giottos MTL9251B Pro Aluminium Tripod With MH5001 head. Really like it as its taken away my shaky hands especially with the 500mm, should really improve on my low light shots like today after work.
