    Brad, another option is to use a stepping ring which is too large for the outside of the lens barrel. Go to Checker Auto or Auto Zone and look at their selection of "O" rings. There are many different sizes, but you need to find one which is a good fit on the outside of the barrel and is fairly thick (3/32" or 1/8" maybe?). Once you have this "O" ring, you can measure the O.D. of the ring, in place on the lens, and find a stepping ring which is close enough to get a firm bite into the outside edge of the ring. You can roll the "O" ring onto the barrel, then screw the stepping ring onto the "O" ring and have a firm mount without marring the finish of the lens. If you have a selection of filters which are already too large for the lens, you're in business. tim

    I use this old Kodak Adjustable filter holder. It fits lenses from 1 11/16" to 2 3/8" (Spring loaded) and was meant for the Wratten 3" filters. I use it with the cokin filters. Found it in an old camera shop.

    I don't know if they are still made, it works very well.

    A quick google search found this page. Filter holders

    I don't know anything about the company. The prices are high ($75 for the Kodak holder) like mine.

    Thanks John. I'll keep this in mind. $75 is, indeed, a litte steep.

    Another good idea. Had thought of using rubber bands but, this is better and cheap too. Will have to give this one a try.

    Ryan, thanks. Depending on where I go with this, I may well be in contact.

    Thanks again to all who responded.

    Do you actually have the Series Filter size you need (not the series numbers, but the diameter for that particular lens?) - the come/came in a multitude of diameters.

    I can dig out the one I have for my 127mm ektar (I may even have a spare) and check the diameter written o the slip on

    then you can just hunt one down on ebay - they come up frequently though you need a bit of patience to find just the right one. They usually go for just a few dollars

    Yep - and once you have the right slip on you can fit lens hoods, use and adapter to another Series size or an adapter to a "regular" filter size

    Let me know if you need me to dig around in my filter box and find the right diameter.

    I have three lenses that are 38mm (1-1/2 inch) O.D. SO, I guess it would need to slip on to that size?

    yes, it's the 1 1/2" (38mm) Series VI - I missed that link earlier - that's the one

    If you don't win that one on ebay for a few bucks, I have a spare laying around. They come up pretty regularly on ebay though
