    depends on the size. 52mm one could cost as low as $20 and more than $100 for hignend ones.

    Advice for SLR users, normally is get a standard size like 77mm, then use step up rings. Buying 1 size for every len you own will be hazardous.

    Btw, IYAM, I'd recommend the Nikon CIR-PL II 77mm (slim), $240-$260 at Lords. Or the B+W 77mm at $180-$190.

    today just saw my friend using nikon (i think) c-pl, the thread size is stated 77mm, but the glass is bigger, like 82mm. when use on 19mm lens, no vig.

    mine is konix, 77mm, but when used with 19mm lens, can see vig.

    so which is cheaper, 1) slim c-pl or 2) use step up ring and use c-pl that is 1 size bigger?

    pls advice me, thanks.
    photography makes one sees things from all angles.

    That's the older Nikon CIR-PL, it's 77-82mm to prevent vignetting, the new Nikon Cir-PL II is slim 77 throughout, and vignetting is prevented as well.

    If you're using wides, you'd probably be better off with a slim CIR-PL or using the older Nikon CIR-PL would be better but you can't attach the 77mm lens cap on the 82mm screw on thread.

    Get the largest, then use step up rings on all the smaller sizes.
