    Hi folks, excuse my naivety.

    I have a Nikon D1x & am purchasing ND filters on payday( never been a saver me :-p ).

    Does anyone have any idea what mm thread I will need for the filter to fit the Nikon.

    Many thanks in advance,

    Gareth.

    Check your lens it has size printed on it.

    Else purchase a filter kit with different size adapters to suit your lens collection; adapter will screw into front of lens and you connect your filter holder and put in your grades.

    Check out Lee and Hitec for filter solutions.

    Hi Rick,
    The lens on it at present is a nikon nikkor 55-200afs-dx.

    In honesty , I can;t see the mm on the lens, but it has a jessops ultra violet filter on it for protection , that has 522mm written on it,.

    Any ideas ..HELP :-P PLEASE.

    522mm..... now thats a BIG lens.... Grin.... If you have a filter on the lens now, then the size on that is the size for the others.... if you take the filter off you have on now, the size will be on the end of the lens, under the filter. if this is your lens then it is a 52mm, its in the spec list.

    Gareth,

    If you want to experiment with ND filters (you may want several different strengths) and then, possibly, ND Grads, then I would suggest that you buy a holder that attaches to your lens and into which you can slide one or more rectangular filters. Get a 52mm adapter ring to suit your current lens but, when/if you change lenses or add more lenses, you will only have to buy a new adapter ring to be able to use your filters with them.

    They need not be expensive. You will find them on eBay, direct from China or Hong Kong, for a fraction of the price of branded items and they are perfectly adequate. (Some folk will disagree - but that is my view).

    ....or go on to eBay. Most holders include an adapter ring of your choice in the original cost.

    Was looking for something else on eBay and, remembering your request, looked for a holder, etc.

    Best I found was 52mm Adapter Ring+Holder+ND8 Filter for cokin P series at 5.98 including postage from Hong Kong.

    If you enter the key words from that description into an eBay search, you'll find it.
