    $299.00 Bargain grade used from www.keh.com. Their bargain grade is better than all my "ex" stuff.

    The 40S has a built in hood, not sure about the 40PS. This prevents adding an aux. hood system. I have the pro hood for the other S lenses, 50mm thru 250mm, which are all 67mm filter thread. It takes 3"x3" filters.

    That screws that idea. Is it a petal hood to? Would that make holding a filter in front impossible?

    I have the 50mm PS. It takes the 67mm filters, which is why I got it instead of the 40mm. It is incredibly sharp. I have 2 Heliopan 95mm filters left from the sale of a 50mm PG lens. PM if interested.

    Wauw, You guys have been busy.
    I thought about the 50mm but in 35mm I'm using 20mm and 24mm. My 28mm f/2.8 AIS is used only for closeups and I fell it's not wide enough so I think the 40mm S or PS will be the right choice for me in MF.
    Thanks for the info, all of you.
    Regards S°ren

    The 50mm PS takes 77mm filters, the 50mm S takes 67mm...

    Some people are like Slinkies. They're really good for nothing, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

    You're right. In fact that's why I got the S version, so all the filters would be the same.

    Yes, the hood on the 40S is a petal hood. The Cokin P filters fit just inside the hood. You can hand hold them, I've done it until I got my finger in the picture. That's when I came up with the rubber band trick. Think of it as a low tech filter holder. It really works.

    Hi--

    For filters with the 95mm--

    I got a hold of a pro type filter holder attachment ring--like a step ring but has a flat front section with no threads. On this I can use tabs of poster putty and stick a filter onto it.
