    Hello everyone
    I'd like to be able to attach filters to my Spotmeter F so I can measure through them, if possible. The inside of the integrated lens 'hood' appears to be threaded and my trusty old caliber shows a 35mm diameter. Am I right to assume it takes 35.5mm filters? Needless to say attaching filters is nowhere mentioned in the manual. Has anyone else tried this?

    I just hold the filter I'm using up to the pentax spot meter. Who knows if the little filter is the same as the filter you'll use on the lens.

    True, but I was planning to use a step-up filter adapter to hold the actual filter on the meter.
