Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have a Nickel Hektor 50 2.5 and am using a SGOOZ with e39 filter yet I wonder if the thread around the front element  is meant for something? !

 

Is the serial number located inside the lens barrel?

 

Cheers !

 

Best,

Jean-Marc

I think that the thread mount was made for the near focus additional lenses (HELPIK etc.)

 

The s/n (if present) is around the black front ring... many times so worn that is difficult to recognize....

Thanks Luigi,

my Hektor model has no sn . 

I'll try to figure out a useable filter to mount on that thread ! Have to guess the thread measurements first !

Best regards, Jean-Marc.

Ask the measure to someone who DOES HAVE some lenses for that thread....

I seeee !

 

Nice set ! An empty Hepro could make a nice hood too

Do you reckon you'd share the measurements of that thread ?! Have you vere seen filters in that size ?!!

 

 

Grazie Mille !

 

Jean-Marc.

I am not sure - being away from my Hektor and my filters - if the Hektor's inner thread was also 19mm, this was the size for the Elmar. Maybe 21mm for the Hektor's larger opening. I'll try later and report.

It's more towards 21mm, I have tried a 19mm filter I use  on the Elmar 5cm 3.5 and it is too small.

Yes you are right, the 19mm version doesn't fit. I am rather sure it's 21 mm. Leitz did produce screw-in filters for the Hektor, though they must be extremely rare.

 

You might ask http://www.foto-huppert.de/shop/subcat.asp?session=82607449192250160520118013214871&land=35&lang=de&status=&TopCatID=B#

for B+W-Filters, or http://www.fotofilterversand.de/fofilter/ (Heliopan) if they produce filters in this size on demand. they did so some years ago for other unusual sizes (for reasonable prices).

Update:

 

Heliopan http://www.heliopan.de/wp-content/uploads/Preisliste.pdf lists filters with 22,5mm as well as 19mm. Though I am sure 22,5mm is too large. You can contact them here:

 

info@heliopan.de

 

Usually they are very helpful.

 

A quick search on eBay and I see some 21mm, 21.5 and 21.7 filters . I guess it's more likely to be 21mm. It's a good address for the scarce 19mm filters ! Danke sehr !
