    I have a Kodak Retina Reflex III with a 50mm f1.9 lens. I know about the bayonet fitting on the f2.8 lens but the f1.9 lens has a thread (as does the 135mm).

    Can anyone tell me what size this is? I have read various web pages which refer to it as a 60mm thread but my measurements show it to be closer to 58mm.

    Also, whichever size it is, will it be a standard size or is it a Kodak special thread?

    Hi Steve, According to to the Hoya Filter Size Book I have in front of me , the Kodak Retina Reflex 111S, Reflex S, 111, and 1V 50mm f1.9 lens takes 58 mm filters. I don't know if it's a special thread but I wouldn't think so the book doesn't say so.

    Thanks. I think I have a 58 to 67 adaptor somewhere I could try. I didn't want to risk cross threading something before asking.
