    My Takumar and Pentax lenses don't have that. I thought they did; I guess I never actually checked.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    We've had the K1000 since '89. I'm NOT buying another 35mm cam.

    If using black and white "silver halide based" film, there are other filters required, although the polarizer and the neutral density filters will still work, as described above.

    I just need to find the original lens cap. I know I have it...I'm just not sure where.

    A polarizer/neutral density is what I was thinking. Thanks for the hint how to find the diameter of the lens, though. You also verified what I was reading on some of the parts store sites about the filters, too. Thank you!

    There are no 50 or 54mm filters. Custom(?)
    I was thinking that was the case when I saw the description...or possibly a typo.

    Which lens is it? If it's a 50 or 55mm lens, and just says SMC Pentax, it will be 52mm. If it says SMC Pentax-M, it's 49mm. If it says SMC Pentax-A, it's 49mm, unless it's the f/1.2, which is 52mm.

    Found the original lenscap in the bottom of an unused camera bag. It's 49. *sigh*
