    Needed a 95mm Neutral Density filter for my Nikon 200-500mm and found a lot of very expensive ones at this size. After reading reviews, decided to get this one. Fits very well and have. It noticed any issues with pictures. In fact, took this shot of the harvest moon a couple of nights ago and was happy with the results.

    I bought this lens mainly for wildlife photography and have found it to be work great for what I had purchased it for. I had been using a 200mm lens and it didn't provide me the picture I was looking for. I am very satisfied with this lens.

    Didn't like that it scratched easily when cleaning it (so it appears as a small scratch or two). The pictures are clear though and also glad that the filter protects the main lens from being scratched. Although the main function is to "filter" it does just that. I know I'd be upset if I would have scratched the main lens.

    I recently purchased Nikon's long reach 200-500mm zoom lens. At a minimum, I put a uv filter on all my lenses for not only the uv protection, but overall protection to the lens element. I'm not sure who makes the filters for Best Buy, but I wasn't willing to pay $150 or more for a top brand name uv filter.

    I bought this filter hoping it would do absolutely nothing but protect the main element in my Nikon 200-500mm lens. It succeeds! No flares, aberrations or color effects on the image. At 1/3 the cost, it is a good alternative to a pricey Nikon 95mm filter.

    My investment in a Nikkor f/5.6 200mm - 500mm ED VR zoom lens needed a protective filter to prevent any damage to the front element. As the saying goes, "It's better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it." At this price, it's a no-brainer.

    I got a new lens and I needed to protect the front element. I picked up this UV filter mostly to keep the front glass from getting scratches. But I noticed better pictures. There really isn't much more to say. It fit really nice on the Tamron 150-600mm lens.

    Needed to use reward before it expired, otherwise I would have gotten a better filter, for less, elsewhere. They were supposed to have a 3 photographic related item bundle discount, but another salesman said it had been cancelled.

    I recently purchased a Nikon 200-500mm lens and needed a UV filter. I looked at many different options but found this slim Platinum 95mm the best, especially for the Best Buy price.

    I bought this lens filter to use on a new zoom lens that I received for Christmas and it works as it should! My pictures look great and I do not have to worry about my (very expensive) lens getting scratched.

    This is the second lens that I use Platinum rand filer on. Why would you spend all that money on a lens and not add a filter to protect it. I like the clear, but one day like to try others with colors!!

    When you're investing in to great glass you not only want to protect that investment but also have a UV filter which will only help with image quality and you won't get those sun bursts.

    Needed a large diameter uv filter to protect my 600mm tamron len. Best Buy had what I needed at a great price. This is a good guality filter for the price.

    Bought this with a 200-500 Nikon lens. Was worth it to spend a little money to protect the lens from UV and the glass itself from damage.

    Just got this to protect my sigma 150-600 lens. It serves its purpose, nothing special about it, but it works and is a decent price.

    Never buy a lens without at least a UV filter for protection. This filter has been just fine and is just as advertised. No distortion and my lens is protected.
