    Hello all!
    Wanted to know if anyone of you uses a Nikon NC filter to protect the front elements of the lenses. Is it a good filter? Does it have flare, does it affect hues, is it a clear filter? Would you recommend it for protecting the lens? Or is B-W or Hoya better?
    Thanks for your answers!!!
    G.

    NC = clear, or No Change. Nikon are generally good so flare would be pretty much non-existent baring the ghosting it would get, but this is present in pretty much all filters, including expensive B+W.

    One thing you do get with the Nikon that you don't on any other brand is a massive gaping hole in your pocket and a feeling of depression after you buy the ludicrously overpriced filter. I would strongly recommend a good Hoya S-HMC grade filter, or if you like splashing out a B+W filter over the Nikon. I think you'd get much more for your dollars.
