What is the filter size for Nikon D5100 with 18-55mm lens kit?

Is it 52mm or 58mm?

  • \$\begingroup\$ @Heyfara - in this particular case, it would be reading the manual of the lens, not the camera. The camera has nothing to do with filter size. The lens is all that matters. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ My bad. I thought the manual coming with a kit would talk about the lens too \$\endgroup\$

I think it comes with either Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR or Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G ED II. According to Nikon's homepage they both have 52 mm filter thread.

Here are a list of their zoom lenses

I think it's 52mm. Have you got the camera and lens? If you look on the lens it will have a little symbol like this , which will be followed by the screw thread size

    \$\begingroup\$ Because this sign is often (enough) used in photography context, you can easily search for special characters from the fileformat.info site, and then copy-paste them anywhere (scroll down to "java data" for this). \$\endgroup\$

52mm will fit the Nikon 18-55 lens.
