It takes a B+W "Wideangle" 82mm filter but this is a big dinnerplate sized
thing on the front with no lens cap or hood that I know of to fit over it.
I was hoping the phrase "filters held on by lens hood" in the Collectors'
Guide might be accurate but I looked at the lens again and it seems that
isn't possible- the front bulges too much. The B+W wa filter sits over the
front so it will work where a filter that went inside the hood would not.
So it is B+W wideangle filters I suppose, or no filters.
