was wondering if there are any RF 135format camera lenses that utilizes the 55mm filter sizes or 46mm filter sizes?

(i know that there are mediumformat RF that uses bigger filter sizes..but i was limiting my question to 135format RFlenses)

just curious
thanks

The Canon 50/1.2 uses 55mm filters.

46mm is more common. The 28 Ultron uses them, and I believe some Leica 28s do too.

A number of my full-sized 70's fixed-lens RF take 55mm filters. I believe the Yashica GS series, Konica S2, Minolta Hi-Matic 7S etc all do.

ZM 21mm 2.8, ZM 28mm also use 46mm filter width. for the new 21mm 4.5 i don't know.

the noctilux generally uses 60mm (both versions).

cheers
