My LTL Nikkor HC 5cm f2 just arrived. Looking forward to giving it a good workout. While searching for a UV filter I came across a chart from B+W filters. It shows all 40.5mm filters have a .5mm thread pitch. It's in their FAQ page listed as #31"How do I find the thread pitch of a filter."
Some had questions about thread pitch of the 40.5 filters. Hope this helps.

I have a short newly purchased heliopan 40.5 screw-in metal hood on it right now.

Smoother bokeh, more even performance across the frame, overall a better lens if you don't need the extra aperture opening.

I picked up one of these on the big auction site, as well as a metabones ltm/m adapter.

What would be the best lens to 6-bit code the nikkor h-c to?

Just received a Nikkor 50/2 H.C. (Tokyo) LTM from the first "rigid" batch (1950). Serial No. 50081069.
I am looking forward to using it.

Mine was fixed on a Waltz Envoy from late 60`s. Too bad the camera film transport failed within four years. Still have all the negs, contact sheets, and slides from then.

I was pleased with the images all through college. Bought a Pentax Spotmatic after graduation.

I have a summicron F2 coding, from left to right holding it in my hand with the knob on the right side:
BBBWBW
And that works good.

By the way I had the flange recess increased so the rangefinder follows the lens now to 70 cm (and not the 1 m from the original factory design)..,

I picked on of these up at a thrift store today, on a Canon VT that has seen better days. The lens itself is in great kit and appears to have always had a filter attached.

I planned to use it on my really nice FED-1, but the balance isn't great. Very front heavy.

Maybe I'll get an M adapter to used it on my M3.

Thanks for the thread.
