    Nice! What lens is that 82mm filter for? I had to buy an 82mm Kiesman circ polarizer the other day. I hate buying filters that big. LOL

    BTW, I have an 86mm circ polarizer for sale. LOL

    I bought it for the Sigma 24-70mm
    548306 Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 EX Aspherical DG DF AutoFocus Standard Zoom Lens with Hood for Nikon AF Cameras

    The filter was for 3.00usd. so I just want it for protection when in certain conditions, like the subject(s) playing with dirt or mud or jumping over me while I'm at floor level, etc.

    But I already received an order rejection notification from that seller(filter) and for the Hood from another seller, through Amazon.
    I live in Mexico, at the border with Hidalgo TX. So I ship the stuff to a friend's house at Mission TXs and then I just go pick it up.
    So the shipping address is not the same as my credit card's ofcourse, and have to deal with this sometimes.

    Those items were the less important anyway, I'll still see if I can do something.

    I did not realize the Sigma used such a large filter.

    It was probably a good thing that happened though. Those cheap filters even just used for protection will take away from the IQ and you would be better off w/out any filter on the lens at all. Go for a hoya or B+W and if you don't have the cash either skip it or just save up.

    Congrats though on all that new gear have fun with it!
