    Schneider-Kreuznach Symmar-S 5.6/180 Lens Cap

    Hi there! I have searched far and wide for lens specs to purchase a UV Filter and lens caps for this lens and cannot seem to find the right diameter. Ordered a 58mm UV filter per Schneider specs & it is too small. Any idea on lens diameters so I can purchase caps for the rear & front elements? Any help would be greatly appreciated!!! Thank you.

    Previously, I used this: https://www.schneideroptics.com/info...5,6-180mm.html

    It's possible I'm just missing something here...been a while since I ventured into Large Format land.

    Excellent, thank you both! I was having trouble translating...photo school is many years in the past at this point. Now just have to figure out the rear. Can you use calipers for this measurement? If so, would you measure outside diameter or try to measure inside?
