    70mm Filter for CY 35PC

    I've had the Zeiss Contax CY 35PC lens for about a year now and am shooting it a lot. I am also using it for landscapes. Sharp corner to corner and the shift makes it easy to set the horizon where you want it.

    I want to put a filter on it and have been searching for the 70/86 Ring with no luck. Has anyone found another solution? What I'd really like is a 70mm clip on step up ring to 82mm as I have a collection of good 82mm filters.

    Are you sure about the 70mm? I can't find a 70mm filter mentioned on the Zeiss site. I can't find a 70mm filter thread mentioned in SRB Photographic's catalogue.

    SKGrimes (in Rhode Island, USA) make slip-on adapters to order: http://www.skgrimes.com/products/slip-on-filter-adapter

    You provide the dimensions you want -- outside diameter of the lens barrel, depth of barrel, and filter thread size -- and they'll make you an adapter. Note that the current versions are black anodized, not the brass depicted on their site.

    Clip on filter is 70mm, but screw on thread is 67 - you can use those widely available.
