Leitz made their own filters.  

I would trust that they knew what they were doing, so I'd find a Leitz

The advantage is that the ring knurling on the Leitz filters matches the
lens, and the lens caps.

I'm assuming you are using that pitiful 39mm lens cap that keeps falling

Be ready to endure the "UV filter vs no filter" debate.

I bought a 1970's 50 'cron (glass is topnotch.....amazing)
But was told I should put a Skylight on it.
Does anyone know of a good protective filter which
will not compromise the quality of the glass in terms of picture quality
that is?
