    WTB: UV/IR cut filter for 40mm Summicron-C

    Hi, I recently got an M8 so I'm looking for a UV/IR cut filter for my 40mm Summicron-C, it has the Rubber Hood and a 5.5 UV filter, I've read lots of conflicting reports about the ability to use a regular 39mm UV/IR so any advice would be much appreciated too...

    A European source would be preferred as I'm in Ireland.

    Just use a 39mm B+W filter. I have one on my 40mm Summicron and have never had any problems with it falling off.

    I have the version from the CLE, which takes 40.5mm filters. A 39mm filter didn't work for me. I purchased the 40.5 UV/IR from Adorama. Just FYI.

    When I had that lens, I used regular 39mm UV/IR filter.
    It only turns once, or maybe one and half turns, but the filter stayed there okay. You just want to check if filter is not loosened from time to time.
