Questions & Answers for Nikon Inc. 52mm Slip-in Circular Polarizing Filter C-PL1L

Question

Why is this listed as compatible with all these INcompatible lenses?

Based on this website's information I bought the drop-in filter hoping to use it with my Nikon 500mm f/4. It does not fit at all - the curvature is obviously for a smaller diameter lens. I've since tried to slip it into the 200-400mm and the 600mm f/4 but it doesn't work in those either. Please update the "compatible with" links to correctly identify the lenses into which this fits.

Please see page# 16 of the user's manual for your lens. The 52mm filter is the correct one; just make sure that is installed properly:

Question

What's the difference between the C-PL1L and C-PL3L

Both have the same diameter and look identical from product photos. The 3L version is listed to be the one for the 200mm f/2.0 so what's the 1L version for? There's no information explaining why there are two models and what the differences are.

Question

No Loss of Stops with Nikon Drop-in 52mm Lens

I have a Nikon Circular Polarizing Slip-In (C-PL1L) 52mm (Prod. # 2474). I just tried it out in the 500 f/4 and found that it had no effect on the f/4 starting aperture. Usually, with regular lenses (WA or Tele's.) you lose 1 - 2 stops of light when you add a CPF. Can it be true that you lose no stops with this Nikon drop-in lens in the 500 f/4?

You generally lose between 1 and 2 stops of light but the loss is compensated for by the camera.
