    Only ebay.de has sellers that can spell Voigtländer properly.

    Also look for Agfa 37mm push-on filters; I've got a couple of those.

    you could establish a daily search in both north america & Europe on the big aution website for Voigtlander (or Voigtländer) 37 mm filter + orange which is same in English & German - eventually you will be lucky.

    50/60's B+W push on 37mm glass filters seem to be a similar quality to Voigtländer but the mounts are not as good but they seem to be slightly more prevalent

    best/good luck

    fek. there you go - corrected 4x - Voigtländer

    was so fixated on getting a ¨ on my (new to me) tiny screen "smartphone" that i didn't bother to check anything else, banal waste of time writing blah in tiny windows anyway

    it's no wonder Carl Zeiss eventually bought Voigtländer - that daft name can't have helped worldwide sales

    I really appreciate all the input. I just received the series VI adapter. I see on the auction site a lot or orange daylight filters. How do these compare to a B&W contrast orange filter. Thanks, Robert

    I think I have a couple of series vi Hoya filters that I'll never use. I think one may be an orange. I can look tonight and let you know. If it's what you need, you can have it for whatever postage costs.

    That's very kind of you. Thank you, Robert

So I use Kodak Series 6 filters using a 38mm/1.5" adapter ring, and this is snug secure fit with the tangs of the adapter bent very slightly. The advantage of the Series 6 filters is that there are a lot about on Ebay, and they are a good quality. I don't know if you can get a Kodak Series 6 37mm adapter, but you may find a 38mm is OK as I do.

    Any branded (Agfa, Voigtländer, B&W...) push-on filter marked 37mm from the 50s should be just fine. These push-on filters usually have tongues on the mount side that can be bent to make them fit snuggly. This is true for all the Agfa, Voigtländer, Zeiss (E-Germany) and B&W push on filters I own. Any of these in 37mm will fit a Bessa II (and a Record III) without problems. The only exception are the Kodak Retina filters which use a confusing system of denominating the filter size. But I am not aware of any Retina filters in 37mm anyhow. The Agfa and B&W filters are usually easiest to find in 37mm, the Voigtländer filters are the best (even available coated) but are bit more scarce.
