    Cheers from KC....

    I was just thinking about ordering a CP for my 70-200 2.8VR and was wondering what those of you that have this lens use?
     
  2. Sam,

    I use the Moose filter and it's great. You can get them at B&H.

    Regards,

  3. When I do use a CP, I use an older (non-thin) Nikon one. Very solid.

  4. What about B+W

    I'm picking up one of these lenses in a few months. I was planning on picking up a B+W CP. I have one for my other lenses and love it. I'm curious why no-one mentioned them. Is there some reason not to get the B+W or is it just that you guys happen not to have B+W and I'm reading into this?

    thanks,

    Dave

  6. I've just bought a Nikon CP. I have a 70-200 and also a 17-55 so the filter will do for both.

    Got the filter from an Ebay seller in Hong Kong for less than half the UK price.

    I use the thin nikon one ,its harder to get a handle on than the thick one ,but it also works with wide angles good.

    I'm using a Hoya. I have the B+W in a smaller size, from years ago, but I found that while the B+W's are optically very good, the rings seem to lock to the lenses with alarming frequency and tenacity. I've never had this issue with any other brand of filter.
