    Could you use a Kodak Series VI push-on adapter & then use the Series VI filters? I'm not aware of separate push-on filters.

    Try asking jurgen@certo6.com. My 6x9 folder came with a set of four 32mm push on color filters in a case that had held magnifying filters. Perhaps he also has or can direct you to 37mm.

    There are 37mm push-on filters (and lens hoods) the problem seems to be that they fit some very highly collectable cameras, like the Voigtländer Bessa II, and tend to go for alarming prices, especially if they are the matching brand. I have slowly accumulated some (for my Ercona II), but in the meantime, as JLMoore3rd suggests, I found a push-on Series VI adapter and got some Series VI filters. Even they aren't all that common, the transition from series to custom dimensioned filters must have happened longer ago than I realized.

    Thanks for the info. I have managed to snag a green and a yellow (from the UK), and am scouring the web for more.

    I guess I just have to be patient. I was a little surprised to hear the Bessa II took the same size as the Avus, but I guess it was good planning back in the day for Voigtlander.
