Very nice finish
on July 31, 2006
This 5mm thin filter is made with precision and quality. You can count on pretty much any Nikon products that are made within the highest standards. I have several other brand polarizer but this one is one of the best looking ones. I've stacked this filter and 3mm Hoya ultra thin on my 12-24mm Nikkor and due to its excellent sky darkening effect can hardly notice any vignetting problems even at the shortest focal length. The only problem is that depending on the angle of sunlight you may get uneven sky darkening effect on a wide angle lens. I'm a big sucker for polarizer filter and 90% of my work is done with it. Graduated Neutral Density filter sometimes can give better result on sky darkening effect depending on light condition.
If you have the money just buy it; you won't regret it. If you want to spend less money, go ahead and get some other polarizer at half price. Taking great pictures is about observation, not about owning great equipments.
