and I am wondering - do any of you guys have polarizers for these lenses ? If yes - what model do you have ? what range should I look around for ? I would like to get one for both, or if not possible ( I swear I'm a rookie ) one for each because I plan on filming water in the spring time. You know how beautiful it can be when it melts and floods grass or last fall's leaves or anything else.
Any tip - advice - size options, guidance would be most welcomed !
Not to be argumentative but; I have both those kit lenses and they both take 52mm filters. If you buy a polarizer make sure you purchase a circular polarizer they are specifically designed for use on auto-focus cameras. Stick with HOYA, Tiffen, Cokin etc.....Try to avoid buying inexpensive filters when possible. Practice a lot and enjoy your new purchase.
Welcome to Nikonians! Both the 18-55mm and the 55-200mm Nikkor lenses have 52mm filter threads and require 52mm filters. I would recommend getting a 52mm Nikon Circular Polarizer II. They are multi-coated unlike the cheaper filters and a good value. The multi coatings will help to keep flare and ghosting in check compared to the non-multi-coated filters. Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!
Thank you soo much each one of you guys ! I didn't expect to have this many replies this soon ! You are amazing
I think I'll get that camera and the polarizer in a few weeks hopefully - and I like to buy all my gear at the same time, so I usually spend some time googling around information, samples and do a real search to be certain of getting what I want to get. You know, it's just easier to shop around when one knows what size to look for !
You are the most helpful ppl i came across the net !
I'm soo excited about this whole thing I know that store has a huge variety of lenses and I'm dead sure they have the ones you recommend !
I'm just soo looking forward to use a Nikon, over all - I been in the galleries and hollé tolédo the purity of colors
I have one polarizer for my Tamron AF18-270mm F/3.5-6.3 Di-II VC - which is pretty huge ! 72 mm ( which I think I will sell eventually - I barely used it once since I bought it ... ) and I'll rather get the other kit that I saw at my local store, with the second lens being a 55-300mm, I know myself and I will need that extra push - I love zoomin' in on targets like a hunter on a prey - lol
Interesting !! I never considered that in between step, I have to admit ! And now I am considering to add the Nikon 105mm f/2.8G ED-IF AF-S VR Micro-Nikkor Lens @_@ I really have to make a chart and see what I want the most and what it will cost me - lol i'm too passionate about this hobby - lol
well, today I officially lost my Nikon virginity ! got the D3100 + the two lenses 18-55 and 55-300, an extra battery and a sigma 150 macro lens ( a huge beast !! ) I am currently recharging the first battery and tomorrow will go to take photos hopefully I'll be able to share some work soon
I would like to take this occasion to thank you guys from the depth of my sensitive little heart ! lol - i know I am being emo - but I really appreciated your help and I'm really happy to be finally entirely part of this big community
