    Hasselblad Distagon CF 4/40 Filters

    I just bought one of these beautiful lenses 2nd-hand, and it in fantastic shape. What leaves me wondering is how to attach a filter. I understand, it's a 93-series filter, but I don't have one yet. Once it get the filter, what do I need to do to put it in place?
    Regards

    The front built-in thin lens shade unscrews and you screw the filter in its place. Must be the only non-bayonet filter in the Hasselblad lens system.

    The series 93 filter mounts inside the lens hood, not sure if you got one with your lens. The 93 series filters have no threads.

    If you have more lenses you need filters for, it pays to get a ProShade 6093 + adapters, and use 100 mm square gelatin or resin filters in that thingy.

    The 93 mm ProShade adapter screws into the lower half of the lens hood (obviously not the 4 petal thingy that is also on the lens, but the circular outer thing), so you need to have that thing with the lens then too.

    These lens shades/series filter holders came with the lens, and since there is little other use for them, probably still will be.

    How do I 'screw the filter in' (arigram) if the 'filters have no threads' (dentkimterry)?

    The filter has threads, atleast the Hasselblad Polariser I have does. It replaces the lens shade.

    You insert the filter in the hood, and then screw the hood in. He's a picture of one http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc..._for_40mm.html

    The 93 polarizer has 86mm threads which screw directly onto the lens. Regular 86mm filters don't fit because the four little petals on the front of the lens interfere.

    I use a 93 mm polarizer which screws in the lower part of the shade cum filter holder.

    As you will have gathered, the shade is a two part affair. You unscrew the front part, lay the threadless filter in the rear part, and replace the front part, which then acts as retaining ring.

    That means you can't use more than 1 filter at any time. One other reason why using the ProShade 6093 is a good alternative.

    The thin profile B+W 86mm screw-in filters will work with this lens.
    I just want to feel nostalgic like I used to.

    I got it now. Thank you all for the info. It was very useful.

    This lens is likely to become my favorite. I did not expect the difference it makes, compared to the 50mm.
