OR do I need slim, or Nikon only?
Thinking of perhaps a CP or infamous hot mirror filter for d2h.

you need ordinary filters, beware of B+W which often have very massive rims and thus will jam in the slot.

very helpful thanks Bjorn.
B+W makes one of the hot mirror filters (#486) I was considering, so that is useful to know.

There is no known law against taking the filter glass out of the mount and put it into another :)

only murphy's law that says' twig will destroy his lens by playing with parts not meant for clumsy american fingers'.

I am still trying to get my head around the hot mirror filter issue anyway, as that is the only thing I would consider using. I shoot under stadium lights with teams in polyester jerseys and I worry about color shift (though I have not foudn any examples I don't think). I can say that I preferred the look of auto WB when I had a hot mirror filter. The last filter also served the double purpose of protecting my lens from a subway-realted impact that blew it up last week.
