    I'm looking for suggestions for a lens shade for this lens that wont cause vignetting on my 4x5 Technika III

    Suggestions anyone?

    The Linhof 42mm clamp-on shade and filter holder works. I also use a generic 39.5mm rubber folding hood as well, and it closes with the lens inside my Tech V. There is not much room for movements with this lens in general.

    Thanks David. Is the thread 39.5mm? I was thinking it was 39mm.
