    Filter size of 14 inch Commercial Ektar

    What is the filter size for a 14 inch Kodak Commercial Ektar? I know that I could just measure it but using a ruler is a little crude. I want to be dead on because I have to order a filter and a step up ring, sight unseen.

    Mine's 72mm IIRC. It's one of the few older lenses that will take a standard screw-in filter size.

    Cheers, Steve

    Steve, thanks a bunch. I was worried that it might not take a modern screw-in filter. All of my filters are 77mm (to go with my RB67) so I was really hoping that I could just get a 72-77 step up ring.

    Mine is also 72mm! I use it with a 72/95mm set up ring and a Heliopan lens hood (metal).

    Don,

    I do 77mm filters too and a step-up ring is exactly how I do it with mine.

    Cheers, Steve

    As it turns out, they had a 72-77 step up ring in stock. I could have just brought my lens in! Anyway, it is now on the camera with a new uv filter for protection.

    I have not bought filters in ages and I was floored by the price of a polarizer - close to 200 bucks.
