    Hello friends,

    today I picked up a pair of 72 mm Russian filters, yellow and orange - wanted these to put on my Fujica G690. So imagine my nice feelings, when I discovered that Fujinon has a 0.75 mm thread, and the filters are 1 mm! :smile: Do you have an idea what these were made for? I understand I should know it for better - my suspect is one from Tairs.

    Cheers,
    Zhenya

    The various MF lenses that take 72mm filters are all 0.75 mm.
    I know the Mir 38 is. Even the 88mm filters for the tair 33 are supposed to be 0.75.

    That's why I got so impressed with these :smile: If anyone can figure out what they are for, I am ready to give it away - I am sure that it's impossible to find those highly original filters if someone wants them badly :smile:
