    Where can I find a 100 mm UV filter?

    I've been assembling one and a half Pentax 67II kits.

    As we divide our time b/w NY and AZ, my plan is to have the same lenses at each locale and just transport the body between them.

    I've obtained the lenses and have a problem.

    I wanted and found on eBay two 55mm/3.5f Super Takumar lenses. Unfortunately, only one came with a UV filter.

    I always put either UVs or skylight filters on all my lenses for the prophylactic protection.

    Alas, I cannot find a source anywhere for 100mm filters. I struck out at my favorite vendor (Filter Connection) and even at B&H Photo.

    Does anyone know where I can find a 100mm UV filter?

    I love those pentax lenses. I miss mine.

    But a quick google search found the filter at Adorama (ahhhhh) for $49.

    I'm on Adorama's site and they do not list a 100mm filter.

    Can you please post your Google link?

    Got it? I just went to their site and punched in 100mm uv and it popped right up.

    Yeah, I got it and placed the order.

    Interesting that used gear doesn't show up on their own website search function.

    Being in NYC I always "cringe" when I order from Adorama or B&H on-line because of the inflated shipping charge. But, to be honest, it's only a few bucks over a round trip fare on the subway or bus. And I also get to avoid the craziness of both stores!

    Thanks, David, for the info.

    I found the item from their start page, so the used stuff did come up.

    Glad I could help.
