Re: Nikkor 500mm F4.0 glass drop-in filters

" ... The glass filter holder came with a Nikon L37c. I assume that is a UV filter? ..."

You can search for that filter on the Nikon USA website or on any retail website that sells filters. Once you find the type of filter you can read the description.

I think any 37 mm round threaded filter should fit the holder. You can remove the L37c and measure the filter threads with a metric scale. If it's close to 37 mm then it's 37 mm threads. If you can't find new filters consider buying used filters.

Can you still find the 37 mm filter holders? You may want a 2nd filter holder so you can easily and quickly change filters.

I am having trouble finding a 52 mm filter holder for the 300 mm f/2.8 lens, which also fits one other telephoto lens. Nikon doesn't carry them any longer and B&H doesn't/can't get them in stock.
