I always wanted to get a polarizer for my Nikon D-70's kit lens and had THE hardest time trying to find one. Finally got one last night, but just wanted to make sure before I opened it if it'sthe right one and will it work for my kit lens. Here's the name and specifics:

Quantarary Filter

Polarizer (PL) 67 mm.

Is this the right lens or do I have to go on a hunt again? :?

It is the correct size, but i don't know anything about the quality of it. I just got one myself. It is made by Hoya. A lot of people recommend the Hoya brand. Whatever brand you stick with though, make sure it is 67mm, circular (as opposed to linear) which most are, and look for muti-coating. The coating on the glass will cut glare from the sun on the glass.

Thanks. I have a quick and stupid question for you. How can you tell the difference between a circular and linear?

Just to reinforce NHL's advice here. I have used Hoya filters for about 20 years and find them as good as the maker's brand but much cheaper. Scratching over extended ownership has been minimal, if at all. Hope this helps.

Won't a Circular Polorizer always tell you some how that it's circular? At least with a "C" or something?
