    I have another question about the 90 Hexanon (which, BTW, is gone to the repair-person with my M4 to be calibrated): I'd like to use 43mm filters on it using a "step-down" ring, so that I only need one set of 43 mm filters (my two other lenses have 43mm thread)

    If you have tried it, I'd be very happy to get a confirmation about the feasibility... When I put a 43 mm filter on the lens, the filter does not hide the front at all, so I guess it should work.

    If this could be helful: I finally bought the adapter, and it does not even approach the front lens, so I see no way it could vignette... If it does, I'll post an update of course
