    Align the filter on top of the lens and screw it in.

    depends on what type of polariser. there are many kinds, some better quality than others (easier to clean, scratch resistant etc)

    IIRC, AF can only use CPL and thus more expensive.

    Please get your info right to avoid misinforming. Both the Nikkor 18-55 and 55-200 use 52mm filters.

    @threadstarter (TS), don't just buy a CPL for the sake of it. Many people buy them when first starting out, then sell them again because they don't find it suitable for their usage.
