    Lens hood size for 135mm Zeiss Tessar?

    I am stupid or its Sunday. I cannot work out what size lenshood I need for a 135mm Zeiss Tessar 4.5 lens from 1930/1. It is not here yet, so I cannot measure it.
    Is it 42mm push on or 52mm, can't work it out even from literature.....duh

    One of my f4.5 135mm Tessar's is here with me in Turkey on a Patent Etui, it's the same version as yours. The lens cap of my late production f5.6 150mm Xenar would only fit if forced on and stretched that's a 36mm fit. So I'd say it needs a 37mm push on Lens hood.

    My other f4.5 135mm Tessar is a later version, the lens barrel is different much thicker walls and it's in a rimset Compur that takes a 39mm filter and I'd guess would need a 42mm push on lens hood. The cells from the Rimset Compur & Dialset Compur aren't interchangeable the shutters are different internal diameters and threads are different sizes.

    On mine with rimset Compur I use a Kodak 42mm push on VI adapter.

    What's the filter thread Chuck.

    My f4.5 135mm Tessar cells are in the UK so I can't check, but I think that the thread is smaller than 40.5mm which is the filter thread size of my f4.5 T coated 150mm Tessar cells that I swapped them with. I'm sure when I bought the lens with a Crown Graphic it came fitted with a 39mm--58mm stepping ring for filters. Both front cells are 42mm OD, and fit rim-set Compur/Coplal 1 shutters.

    I have one 135/4,5 Tessar in a dial-set Compur that takes 37mm, and one in a rim-set Compur that takes 42mm. My guess would be 37mm, but measure it when it arrives.
