Is anyone familiar with the Canon 19mm f3.5 screw mount lens? I'm trying to locate a shade for the lens. Does anyone familiar with the lens know if a custom shade existed? If not, the filter thread size is 55mm. Anyone know of any shades for 19-21mm lenses that have a 55mm thread? I've tried a couple of metal ring/rubber shades, but even with the wide angle ones, the filter ring vignettes slightly. Thanks in advance. As I'm sure you're aware, I use the lens with a Leica adapter on my M2. The reason for the shade is that the lens has a bit of flare (1967 pre-multicoating days).
