Hood for Canon 35mm f3.5 Lens

I finally bought a Canon Series VI f:1.9 50mm / f:3.5 35mm for my Canon 35mm f3.5 lens. This combination is shown clearly on page 69 of Peter Kitchingman's book.

However, the hood does not fit. As show in the book, the slip-on ring with the hood is 42mm in diameter, while the lens is 36mm slip-on diameter. Peter's table confirms the lens' 36mm series attachment diameter. The difference is 6mm! Every hood that I can find on the Internet has the 42mm slip-on ring.

Does anyone know if the hood originally came with two slip-on rings - 36mm and 42mm? Or if perhaps the hood came with a 36mm to 42mm adapter? (The Leitz SOOGZ adapter works perfectly to use the hood with 42mm slip-on ring on the 36mm diameter lens. But I hate to embarrass the Canon equipment with a Leica part.)

Is that the black rectangular hood? I've only every seen it with the 42mm push-on adapter.
However, I used to have a Canon 36mm clamp-on Series VI adapter, which worked with the round hoods for the 50/2.8 and 35/2.8 -- so I bet you could use it with the 35/3.5 as well. (I've also had a 34mm screw-in Series VI adapter, but that obviously won't work for a rectangular hood.)

Yes, it is the black rectangular hood (clearly marked "f3:.5 35mm). The 34mm screw-in Series VI adapter may indeed work because the hood itself unscrews from the 42mm push-on adapter to accept Series VI filters. I'll look for one of the 34mm screw-in adapters.

Thanks for the info.

I use a Kodak series VI 1- 13/32 inch slip-on adapter with my Canon rectangular lens hood on my Canon 35mm lens.

These Kodak series VI adapters are easily found for sale on ebay.

Yes, I imagine you could swap the 42mm push-on adapter for a 34mm screw-in adapter, but once it's put together and screw-mounted onto the front of the lens, I doubt that the hood would be correctly aligned with the camera. Instead, you'd probably need the 36mm clamp-on adapter to get the hood aligned properly on the lens.

Yes, and Ednalite adapters as well.

Yes and Walz and Canon's own series VI to 36mm slip-on adapter.

They all will work with that rectangular Canon lens hood.

I already know SOOGZ, which I have, works. The question remains how did Canon expect it to work in the first place? I'm sure it was not to use it with a Walz, Kodak or Ednalite adapter. There must be an original part missing.

Some of my sources are missing from the Internet, but there could have been more than one version of the 3.5/35 with different filter sizes. The Canon Museum is no help, as they are very sketchy with the rangefinder lens history. Are you sure you don't have a Serenar version? The hood you have was made for the later just plain Canon lenses found on the IVsb on up.

Hi,
I have a 35 mm f2.5 Nikkor lens in the Leica screwmount which I use with my Leicas - I think the outside diameter is 36mm. Many years ago I bought a Leitz lens hood that is marked "SUMMARON-ELMAR 3.5cm". It my lens and lenshood work like champs.

Always remember: Stuff is where you find it. I found a nice set of three slip on filters by Walz in a plastic case that said Mamiya Filters on the cover. They don't fit any Mamiya lenses I have, but they sure do fit my threadless Canon Serenar 35mm f3.5 lens and my threadless Ricohflex TLR lens perfectly. Of course, as several have suggested, just get a Series 6 slip on adapter and you can mount all kinds of stuff.

I have often found off-brand filters, hoods etc in camera stores and so forth. Quite often then as now semi standard lens barrel sizes were used - 36mm, 39mm etc so it is not unreasonable to expect to find accessories that fit multiple brands. Adapters make the job of finding hoods etc even easier (although these days you would be more likely to find stuff on eBay than in camera stores). The latter was not always so as only perhaps 10-20 years ago especially when film was still prevalent camera stores often kept old bits and pieces like these things. I had many happy lunch hours (I was working full time back then) rummaging around in drawers and boxes of camera stores owned by compliant camera store proprietors who were happy for me to find and buy these things often for pennies.

While on the subject of Canon LTM 35mm f3.5 can anyone help me with instructions for disassembly and cleaning please? I found mine, which I have not used for a while hidden in a drawer, and discovered that the lens helical thread lube has hardened up and needs removing / re-lubricating. Although the elements look reasonably clear it would also not hurt to get rid of any fog traces that might be present too - these lenses do fog regularly. I gather this lens is easy to disassemble and CLA so I would not mind doing it myself -especially as it is not an expensive lens and probably not worth me paying to have it done for me. Anyone able to assist please? Links perhaps?
