I am sorry there's a different filter ring which was not available on the Cambo units, I think. I need to find it, it is stored somewhere in the original SK box as I never use this lens with it. May need to retrieve it and make pictures of how the whole set looks like.The metal cap was issued with early production units of the 28XL. Later 28XL units were supplied with regular plastic caps.
That's my understanding from three units I've owned of the 28XL and from photos of others posted online that I saved.
The metal cap shown below was issued with an early serial number 28XL. It's a handsome product and feels luxurious in the hand.
The rear part of the rear edge is 2.5mm thick, and, unusually, rotates easily against the front part.
The 112mm filter ring that Paul showed was also available for the Cambo-mounted units.
I need to digest this – haha, I have all these adapters but not a manual. Nice to meet one of the other 48 people in the world who have one!Mine is the Alpa version too; it features an outer thread on the front allowing you to either i) attach the blank ring with no filter thread, ii) attach the Alpa M95 x 1 filter adapter, iii) attach the Alpa M112 x 1.5 filter adapter, or iv) attach the Alpa (S/K) centre filter. BTW, the latter came with the standard black plastic S/K lens cap.
Paul, here is a snip I saved containing an explanation of the adapter rings you have for the 28XL.I need to digest this – haha, I have all these adapters but not a manual.
This was a very good thread. I think I also postet some comments at the end of the thread.Paul, here is a snip I saved containing an explanation of the adapter rings you have for the 28XL.
The snip is from a long thread in February 2012, now deleted, in which Guy Mancuso copies an explanation he received from Cambo.

Hope this helps.
Ben, your comment was another that I saved from that long thread. Yours was number 165, posted five years later.This was a very good thread. I think I also posted some comments at the end of the thread.
