I was sorting through some old piles of junk yesterday and came across an odd Leitz filter. It's a yellow screw in filter with a screw diameter of around 3/4 of an inch. It's marked Ernst Leitz Wetzlar, Germany 2* on the filter itself, and it comes in a tiny red box labelled Gelbfilter 2, "Firmy" 3.5 - 5 cm. I assume this means it's for 35 and 50mm lenses but it's so small it won't fit any of the current range. Is "Firmy" the code name for it, and if so does anyone know what this was for? Thanks, Simon.
