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. Ditto with, say, the AF-S NIKKOR 50mm ƒ/1.4G and AF NIKKOR 50mm ƒ/1.4D–the model names might be very similar, but they’re different lenses 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.

Nikon Z Lens Filter Size & Lens Hood

These are the filter sizes for lenses for Nikon’s Z mirrorless camera system. These use the Z-mount system.

Note that there can be lenses designed for full-frame sensor bodies as well as DX lenses for mirrorless cameras that have a cropped DX-sized sensor. Nikon’s naming convention for these is that the FX lenses don’t have any special notation, while DX-only lenses have “DX” in the lens name.

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.

  1. Earlier in the article today, there was an article about some betterthan others for film clarity. At least that is what I thought. I have beena Nikon fan forever. My neighbor and I both started with the Nikkorex F. We both used 50 mm lenses but he got a 1.4 lens size and I got the 200. Much different in size but I think function was about the same. Later on we took his garage and made a side space and piped in water, fresh ait and discharge water. He paid for most of that and I bought more photography items including little stainless steel buckets. Youknow, gotta develop the film. We did special formulas to change speed. but with either his camera or mine, we could not get that much clarity. Then caame aging and a chance to digital. Now you don’t need a darkroom.
    But anyway if I wanted more clarity in a picture, which way should I go to get more clarity?

    • I do miss the days of DIY home darkrooms. Been thinking lately I might go back in that direction for a bit of fun.

      There are a bunch of things that could be affecting clarity, from film choice, lens quality (and even specific apertures on specific lenses), camera shake, the temperature and freshness of the developer bath, whether the film has been pushed or pulled, etc. But since you’re asking this on a page on filters, I’ll focus there. The main two types of filters that can enhance contrast and clarity are:

      1. UV/Haze filter. Especially good for cutting through haze in landscape photos. The effect is often subtle, but it can help. Also happens to add some physical protection to the front of the lens.
      2. Polarizing filter. In many scenes, especially outdoors, it can enhance contrast by reducing glare. The best are circular polarizing filters, but they have to be rotated to get their effect. They also don’t work well with most lens hoods. And all of them will reduce the light going through the lens, some more than others.

      And one of the benefits of digital is that there are some rescue tools available after the shot in post-processing. It’s always better to get it right in-camera, of course, but any of the newer image editing tools have sharpness and clarity tools that can boost perceived clarity in different ways.

    • It takes standard 67mm filters. Nikon does make one–and they’re very good quality–but there are plenty of other good ones that will work too. You can find several, including the Nikon one, at B&H, for example.

  2. Hello,

    I have a Nikon/Nikkor AF 35-70mm 1:2.8 D, I don’t see it on your list. I would like to get a filter but can not find a size.


  3. The original model number is LC-CP31. A search for “LC-CP31 lens cap” or “Nikon Coolpix L840 lens cap” on Amazon or eBay gets several results. I haven’t tried them, so I can’t personally vouch for them. You can also order the original fro B&H Photo, but it seems to be on backorder at the moment. None of the listings seem to mention a standard size, so it might be a unique, dedicated cap for that camera.

  4. I have a Nikon Coolpix L840 and need a replacement lens cover. I have no idea what size to purchase. I have the snap-on lens cover. Any help would be appreciated.

  5. Not a camera person much as all but I am trying to figure out the size of my lens so I can buy some filters. I have a Nikon Coolpix P520. Thanks for any assistance!

    • It should. Even the NIKKOR Z 58mm f/0.95 S Noct has a manageable 82mm lens diameter. But I haven’t specifically tried them, so I’m basing that on assumption on spec sheets rather than personal experience.
