    take a centimeter a try to check a diameter of your lens on mm :)

    I am not real familiar with Nikon equipment but usually there is a thread size on the lense such as 49mm, 55, 58 or 62. That would be the size your lens would require.

    It may be on the lens. the symbol for lens diameter is a circle with a slash through it. Check on the inside of your lens cap; it's often listed there.

    67mm. That's the thread size for the 18-70mm.

    Years ago, I decided to buy filters to fit my largest lens barrel (77mm). I then purchased step-up rings for the rest of my lenses. I have one set of filters I can use on all my lenses.

    Try looking at the inside of your lens cap. Sometimes the filter size is printed there.
