Bessa III shade and Filter Questions

I have a number of questions I know someone here can answer. Any differences at all between the silver and black bodies available here? I don't understand about the filters. I understand that they take 58mm filters but what is e deal with the 40.5 size?
Thanks

there are no differences between the silver and black gf670, aside from the color. the bessa iii is not available in silver.

58mm filters fit on the lens, while 40.5mm filters fit on the shade.

The Fujica and Voigtlander versions are the same camera, different only in names and colors.

The big difference is that the low priced US Fujicas may be grey market - without Fujica US warranty and so could be difficult to get repaired if needed. Insist on getting "Fujica USA Warranty" on the receipt and all Fujica USA warranty registration IN WRITING if you go that route.
