    As I recall, there were 2 versions, one A36 (36mm push-on), the other E39 (39mm screw-in). What's the number?

    Regards,

    That number makes it a 1951 lens - definitely A36!

    The filter size for the Summarit should have been the standard easy-to-find 40.5 mm, instead it is the unique-to-Leica, rare-as-hens'-teeth E41. The size for the 135 mm Hektor was always A36. The Summarit filters were discussed on this thread:
    http://www.apug.org/forums/forum65/3...light=Summarit
    I have never owned this lens so have not tried to find them, all I know is they are quite rare! There are lots of A36 filters around, most in less than perfect condition, I have in the past made myself a "new" filter by taking an A36 mount and putting in the new glass from a 35.5 screw-in filter. Then I got a Leitz adapter which allows E39 filters to be used. Your Hektor, by the way, is from 1958.

    Regards,

    David

    It's not the only place - but it's the best one I've found for filters for older RF lenses:

    Note: I have no connection with the vendor except as a satisfied customer. These are good folk.

    In a word - no! The right hood for the Summaron is this:
    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Leica-Leitz-FO...QQcmdZViewItem
    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!

    The 35mm Summaron F3.5 is a reasonably sharp lens that can produce very nice photos, it is lower contrast than more modern 35mm lenses in Leica mount, and not nearly as sharp as current offerings for Leica.
