I am now hoping, the Walz filters, I ordered find their way to me still this year (US Postal has some serious issues due to Christmas shippings in continental US it seems).
I am also looking for a hood alternative to the beautiful Yama hood, Andy kindly supplied with the lens.
My big sausage fingers seem to always end up shifting the aperture with the little space between lens hood and body (that W-Nikkor is TINY!)

Does anybody know, if Nikon sold a specific lens hood just for the LTM version of this lens (fitting for the 43mm filter thread)?

I suppose, if such a hood really exist, it might be as costly, as the lens itself :~|

Ken Rockwell advises, to get one of the Nikkor 50/1.4 43mm hoods and just use that - any vignetting ?
The original hood is, indeed, rare and costly. The original clip-on hood for the Nikkor 35/1.8 S-mount will not fit on the LTM lens, as the former takes 48mm filters, while the latter takes 43mm. The S-mount 35/2.5 takes 43mm filters, so the clip-on hood for that lens fits the f/1.8 LTM lens, but its also quite rare. There was, I believe, a Nikon rectangular hood made for the LTM version, marked with an "L", but that is vanishingly rare. Tom A made screw-in hoods to replicate the shape of the original clip-on hoods for the f/1.8 and f/2.5 S-mount lenses; those were merely expensive, rather than outrageous -- does anyone know if they're still available?

In any event, the hood I use on both the LTM Nikkor 35/1.8 and the UC-Hex 35/2 is an inexpensive CV hood sold by CameraQuest as a smaller round hood for the Nokton 35/1.4 -- perfect, IMO, as it's screw-in, doesn't block much of the viewfinder, and comes with a nice push-on cap.

Cheers,
Ari

The Nikkor 35/1.8 S-mount takes 48mm screw-in or clip-on hoods but it does take 43mm filters because it's double-threaded.

The throat between the 48mm and 43mm threads has levelled edges so no 48mm filter can be screwed in there unless you will break the filter glass.

So it's easy to use 43mm screwed-in or clip-on hoods as well on this lens.

Yes, you can, but as Dirk points out it then is very difficult to reach the f-stop control ring.
Another problem with a screwed-in 43mm hood is when I unscrew it I unscrew the complete front lens group too! I don't know how to fix this part firmly.

Erik.

This one looks pretty clean overall and priced well. I don't have anything to do with this seller.

I bought mine from Breguet Camera (the above seller) a couple of years ago. The lens arrived with an undisclosed dent in the focus ring, which scraped against the inner lens barrel during operation (advertised as "smooth focus"). To their credit, they agreed to defray the cost of the repair at Essex Camera, so in the end I got a great lens at a fair price.

Thanks for the lens hood tips guys! Very informative!
Andy, that link on eBay points to a lens, I almost bought, which was, when your ad came up out of the blue!

I almost spread my coffee over the computer, when I saw your ad that day ;-)

I bought from this seller a few times, my UC-Hex and a 43/1.9 Pentax LTM lens among others - always fast shipping and the products in top shape. I would buy again from them. I remember, they also have a real shop in Hong Kong, but I never visited personally.

EDIT: Sorry to hear about this Ari - good the seller made things right in the end.
That is the only way unfortunately to find out, if a seller/ camera shop is good or not - how it is dealt with issues. As long, as everything runs smooth, you never know, if the shop is any good.

I used this lens a lot on a recent trip, the 35 Summilux has reason to be jealous.

There were 2 of these in a camera show last week in USA, both in screw mount.
I thought they were priced right, but they didn't sell.
I know where they are now, They are in UK.

It's still a 35mm for over a grand, not many fork over that kinda dough.

The one on ebay is kinda rough, no lock button either. I value that one around $500-$600

The two I saw were much nicer, almost collector grade.

Sorry, didn't mean to hijack this thread, keep posting pictures folks.

Beautiful image Erik.

I bought a cosmetically nice ltm off the bay this summer for $800 but when I received it it had a dozen pinhead size snowflakes of separation between the elements and the back element was heavily pitted. Needless to say I returned it. I did test it and the images looked fine but didn't want to risk issues down the road.

Nikon SP, older version Nikkor 35mm f1.8. Kodak Double X developed in Td 201.
Slghtly lower contrast than the 2005 version of this lens - but I suspect that the resolution is the same. It was a stunning lens when it came out in the late 50's - and it certainly can hold its own even today.
This is "Fantasy Row" here in Vancouver. Bentley dealer, Porsche, Aston Martin, McLaren and across the street, Lamborghini and Audi - and "Les Ami de Fromage" - best cheese store in town and purveyor of Ported Stilton for christmas. All of this in one city block!
