The best way to clean a filter is to use a piece of lint free lens cleaning tissue and a small amount of Lens Cleaning solution. Do not use anything containing abrasives or solvents, only use Lens Cleaning Solution.

Its not necessary at all, most of the time they are used for protection of the front element. They shouldnt effect the image at all as long as you use a clear glass type filter.

Question

Attaching filter to lens

Hi. I just bought this filter for a new AF-S DX Zoom Nikkor 18-55 mm f/3.5-5.6G EDII lens, which looks like it is one of the compatible lenses. However, I'm having trouble attaching the filter. It doesn't seem to want to screw on. Is there a trick to it or am I missing something? Thanks!

Will not take filters, what you think are threads are not. There are third party adapters but can't vouch for how well they will work.

NC is a neutral clear filter meant to protect the lens only, UV filters UV light(not as important on digital cameras) they are used more for protection. If you get a UV filter I suggest a good quality multi coated filter.

Question

Should the glass filter depress when pushed?

While I was cleaning this filter (which was mounted on a lens) with a lens pen, I noticed that even a slight push with the pen will cause the glass on the filter to depress downward. If I ease off the pressure on the pen, the glass will come back up. Is this behavior to be expected, or is my filter broken?

It seems like the circular piece of glass is held in place by a ring of rubber, which might explain why it allows for such movement, but the whole thing "feels" so flimsy that I thought I should ask this question.

Just checked mine, it is held in by a metal spring ring and doesn't depress at all when I push on it.

Only filters Nikon make are the 58mm circular polariser and neutral colour, if you are in need of filters then maybe look at third party options.

Question

Is it possible to clean the side of the 52mm NC Filter that faces the lens? And if so, how?

The part of the 52mm NC Filter that faces the lens (not exposed to environment) feels like it has some sort of rough coating. Can this be cleaned without damaging the coating layer? What would be the right way of doing that?

Question

Is it necessary to remove this "filter" from a lens before attaching a circular polarizer?

I recently attended a Nikon photo class in San Diego and I recall the instructor advising attendees NOT to stack a polarizing filter with any other filter due to the uncertain effect on the image. Since this NC "filter" is neutral, does the same admonition apply?

Pretty much yes, try and use a cp filter without any other filters attached, it could have some undesired effects else.
