52 mm threaded drop-in 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.

After searching for months I gave up trying to find a 52 mm threaded drop-in filter holder. I just bought the gel filter holder on eBay. It fits the above lens plus 5 or 6 other super telephotos. I see Fred's Camera and B&H both have this gel filter holder, used for under $50.

I plan to use it for ND filters in telephotos that it fits. Does anyone know if the gel filter inserted in the back of the lens will affect IQ?

The 52 mm drop-in polarizer filter is still available. I have one and it provides 1 to 1&1/2 stops of reduced exposure, like a ND filter does.
