Nikon Lens Filter Size & Lens Hood Charts

If you’re looking to get a polarizer, UV, or ND filter for your lens, you’ll need to know the lens diameter/filter size. Here’s a lens filter size chart for Nikon/Nikkor lenses.

Here are the lens diameters and corresponding filter sizes for common Nikon (Nikkor) lenses, including their FX (full-frame), DX (APS-C cropped sensor), and Z Mirrorless series lenses.

Note that my focus here is on lenses that take screw-in filters on the front. Some lenses, such as very wide-angle or fisheye lenses, don’t have a filter thread on the front and can’t accept this style of filter. Some, like the 16mm ƒ/2.8 fisheye, take a dedicated rear filter. Some very long telephoto lenses also use a system of drop-in filters at the rear of the lens.

Some focal lengths have multiple lenses, so it’s important to match the other parts of the name. For example, Nikon has multiple versions of the 18-55mm lenses, and the AF-P and AF-S versions are not the same thing and take filters of different sizes.

This is an ongoing list and clearly doesn’t cover every lens Nikon has ever made–there are a lot of them. I’m starting with their current range and adding older lenses to it as the opportunity arises. Please feel free to send through any additions, requests, or corrections.

If you don’t see your lens listed here and want to find out the filter size, it’s often marked on the lens itself. For a more detailed guide, see my post on finding the lens diameter.

Things Worth Knowing

Many lenses come with a dedicated lens hood included. If you need a replacement or a spare, in most cases, the manufacturer makes it available as an accessory.

The official lens hoods tend to have a large markup, ending up much more expensive than they should be for what they are. In some rare cases, it can get out of hand with lens hoods costing hundreds or even over a thousand dollars (yes, really).

The good news, though, is that you can often find aftermarket alternatives that are significantly less expensive. They often work just as well. They’re usually listed under the same model number as the original.

And in some cases, a generic non-dedicated lens hood might also work, but that usually requires some trial and error to check for lens vignetting and effectiveness on that specific lens.
