If you're using the polarizer with a wide-angle lens, I would suggest buying a 'slim-line' (or thin) polarizer. They cost more but do not protude out as much as the thicker polarizers, diminishing the problem of lens vignetting.

Hi Foto!

Thanks for your reply. Can you please let me know which would be suited. I have a Nikkor50mm, Nikkor 70-210mm f/4-f/5.6D, Nikkor 70-300mm f/4-f/5.6G Is the 77mm suited for these? Maybe perhaps a 1.4 converter? If so which one can i get that's good and affordable?

Many Thanks!

Remember you get what you pay for... the" hoyas" and "general brand"are good you will need step up rings to fit your various lenses.. also depending if you use the d-70 you need a PL-cir type this type is made for a atofocus situations. Good luck Dalewww.pbase.com/cowboy43

The two zoom lenses you list take a 62mm filter. The 50mm takes a 52mm filter. Unless you also have or plan to get a lens that takes a 77mm filter, You don't need a 77. It will work with a step-up ring but will be clumsy and might get in your way.A 62 with a 52 to 62 step-up ring will do for all three lenses and you won't be paying for glass you can't use. Here is a link to a site that has a lot of info on filters and accessories. You can use it to compare prices of eBay items with the cost of a new one. As you will see, there is a wide range of prices for Hoya circular polarizers.

Actorlife,

I think you will enjoy using that filter.I have that same model in a larger size that I use on my D7018-70 kit lens. It works well to deepen the blue in the sky on a hazy day and to give colors more saturation. You can also use it to remove unwanted reflections on glass and water. The attached photo was taken with the Hoya circular polarizer.
