The Nikon 52mm Drop-In Filter Holder is a dedicated metal unit that fits in the rear of the lens and accepts any Nikon 52mm screw-in filter. Nikon recommends using their filters since other filters from other manufacturers may be too thick to fit within the holder.

              Needed an additional filter holder and it appears Nikon no longer makes the black filter holder. Just as well as now I know when I see the white/gray filter holder in the lens I know I have one of my ND filters in place.

                  Comments about Nikon 52mm Drop-In Filter Holder for the AF-S Nikkor 500mm f/4G ED VR Lens:

                  This original Nikon slip-in (or drop-in) filter holder (#2538 ) is identical in size and shape to the black, discontinued #2459, except for the light grey color on the exterior. Though labeled for the Nikon 500mm f4 G lens, it also fits perfectly in the Nikon 400mm f2.8 G. The shape a curvatures are engineered to be the same on those and perhaps other Nikon long lenses with a drop-in filter slot. Great for holding a special purpose filter or a replacement NC filter, allowing more rapid exchanges.

                    Comments about Nikon 52mm Drop-In Filter Holder for the AF-S Nikkor 500mm f/4G ED VR Lens:

                    I use ND filters for most of my aviation photography and it's a pain to change filters in the field. Depending on what lens I'm using, either 200-400 or 600 it's so much easier just to change the drop-in filter instead of screwing/unscrewing filters and swapping.

                    Yes, it works on other telephotos!

                        Comments about Nikon 52mm Drop-In Filter Holder for the AF-S Nikkor 500mm f/4G ED VR Lens:

                        For photographers using Nikon 300, 500 or 600 mm f2.8 or f4 lenses this is the part you've been scouring the used shops for. In the event that you loose or break the holder that shipped with your lens or you purchased a used lens but find the previous owner had replaced it with a polarizer (polarizer with a telephoto?) this is the part you've been looking for. I've used it successfully with 300 f2.8 and 400 f2.8 lenses. Combined with a nikon 52mm screw in filter it assists with the intended Nikon optical design to get you back in business.
