for B&W photography with my M system.
      The lens shades for the 50 & 35mm Sumiluxes hold series VII
filters, So series VII suggested itself as a prime candidate. An adapter

around. The only fly in the ointment seems to be the lack of a retainer,
so the filter can fall out when you remove the shade...
