Subject: [Leica] re 50m/1.8 Yashinon screw thread
From: Thinkofcole at (

  Chris says the 50/1.8 Yashinon lens appears to have a 43mm filter thread 
but that a 43mm filter doesn't go on; Steve Gandy's Cameraquest site says the 
lens takes a 43mm filter. 
  But one of my old Tiffen Optical Company filter guides [from 1969] shows 
that filters come with four different filter threads: Fine, medium, course and 
American Standard. Somebody out there -- possibly Steve Gandy -- knows which 
43mm filter it takes. Or else the filter threads need cleaning. -- bob cole
