Yes - uses  40.5 mm filters. The engraving does looks very close to=
 identical - hollow triangular focus index, double 00 signifing F =3D 90.0.=
 Someone who has repaired these might know of more differences otherwise one=
 might be able to swap out fron ends to change the filter size.

What about the Leitz Minolta CL, it would seem a Rokkor lens would have been=
 more appropriate for that version?
