    Leitz 35mm Summaron f:3.5
    Good luck with that lens and I hope you like it. I got one off eBay a couple years ago for about $130 but never found it all that sharp or interesting in character. Mine could have been a poor example as many like it. I sold it off.

    I had one too. Size-wise and mechanically it was almost perfect however it really wasn't sharp enough so I ended up with a V4 Summicron instead.

    Hi, so overall is this a nice lens? Compare to CV 35mm/2.5 (I have one came with the Bessa R)? I see BH has one for about 300 bucks.

    I got a nice black metal push-on lens hood for a 135 Hektor a couple of years ago from cameraquest.com. I just checked the site and couldn't find them, but it might be worth an email to see if they still have one.

    The CV 35mm/2.5 is a modern lens with multi-coating, will be sharper and contrastier. The old Summaron 3.5 is a single-coated lens of older design and will be lower contrast and creamier. They really can't be compared to each other. Each can produce fine pictures, but they will be different from each other.

    Fedka.com has a couple of A36 push on filters available used and they have 40.5 lens hoods listed as well. Here is the page:

    I just ordered one of the 2x yellow 36mm filters for a 1951 Industar-22.

    ...If any of this is of any help....

    My Summarit is equipped with a Leitz E41 clearly marked.

    You can get a hood for the Summarit from cameraquest.com for $50 including the front cap. I purchased one in the silver and it matches well with the chrome of the summarit.

    but that's not very cheap. The easiest filter/hood solution would be a Cokin holder with 3 clamp screws instead of a threaded ring, the small "A" size would be fine, but the thing would still be a bit bulky in realtion to a screw-thread Leica. A WIDE-ANGLE 36 mm push-on hood and a Summarit hood are 2 hard-to-find items!
    David H is correct & the only easy hood option is a push on A36 series filter ring and a series filter wide angle hood, & this would help the filter availability as well.

    The lens should perform well f/8 and smaller, it is pushing it to use 5.6 if you want poster size prints, but if you just want 10x8 it is ok...
