did you check to see if the tokina can fit filters? alot of these wides have a bulb from element that cant use screw on filters without significant vignette.

for 170 bucks for a hoya hd, you might want to consider the b+w f-pro xs cpl they are thinner then the HD so there might be less vignetting, but you need to use the included lens cap.

it says its filter size is 77mm... so should be able to?

the B+W cir pol filter seems more expensive

B+W makes some of the best filters hence the price. The 77mm is a good size as you can use them on your smaller lenses(72mm etc) with a step down ring which cost a few dollars. The only slightly annoying thing is if you use a step down you might not be able to fit your hood on, but you can still use the hood if you put it on first. I usually don't use my hoods so it's not a big issue.

So what's the current opinion of the D2H? I realize it's a really old body, but I'm evaluating it as a cheap (and FAST) option for using screw-drive lenses, some of which can focus quite quickly on the right body. That would seriously improve my options for getting good lenses on the cheap.

the tokina does not have a bulb front end so you will be ok.

hmm....sorry b+w f-pro is only for UV filters

bhphoto has the b+w kaseman cpl 77mm for 178. which is 15 bucks more then the hoya you priced.

if you want to go a bit cheaper theres the sony zeiss CPL. some sony folks swear by it, but i just stick to good old b+w.

you cant really go wrong with nikon dX series. but it really depends on what you are shooting and if you like/need to crop. also the size of pro bodies are kinda awkward for everyday shooting.

maybe you can consider selling the d5000 and picking up a used d300/s.

The D300 series is still way out of my price range. I've considered selling the D5000 and getting a D200, but I love the overall ergonomics of the D5000 as a general shooter, and so the other body would be more "specialized," for lack of a better word.
