This (below) recently posted elsewhere on the Nikon forum.

Here is a response from Nikon tech support as of 12/2/2004.
Hello: Thread count and diameter are Nikon proprietary information that we cannot release to the public. The 8800 mounts filters on the adapter that slips over the lens assembly. Nikon cannot support or recommend any 3rd party filter sets for our cameras as they can damage the camera itself.

Thank You


Thank you, C___, for your candor and honesty.

Now we know.

(Please note: C___ did give a first name but I have chosen not to ID him/her).
