    Got my Nikon D80 outfit today. And got some " Bonus " Lenses that the guy didn't mention. I was wondering if you could help me in figuring out what they are and what they're used for... Thanks so much

    Don't give up so quick. Keep searching.

    C PL stands for Circular Polarizer and is a filter, not a lens(Check Wikipedia)

    UV stands for Ultra-Violet, is also a filter and not a lems and cannot improve a DSLR's images becuae the image sensor in the camera already has a UV filter. Some people use UV filters to 'protect' the front of their lens. Therre are a ton of TPF posts about that . You can find those threads easily by using the forum search feature.

    just to add on what kmh stated, the two filters screw on to the end of your lens. im going to guess that the other two are similar to this...



    which arent really what you would think of when you think or see a lens. more of an attachment that goes onto an existing lens.

    (btw...you may like the video regardless as you stated in another post i believe about macro photography) :)
