    Schneider Kreuznach 135mm Xenar f4.7

    Does anyone know what the front filter thread size is on this lens?

    Also, would you know if lens will fit a Tachihara F series?

    Thanks in advance, Ken

    Read this. Filter size is M 40.5 X 0.5

    Since the pitch isn't a standard 0.75 camera pitch you are probably out of luck but those with more machining knowledge than I might correct me on that.

    I have a Schneider Symmar 135 f:5.6 and it uses the same size filter. They are readily available from B&H and are 40.5x0.5 and fit perfectly. I have several and it is the only size that I carry aside from my 67mm filters that I have standardized for most of my lenses.

    Since nobody else got this one, the lensboard pictured is a Sinar, which won't fit a Tachihara. Tachihara's use the Linhof Technika-sized board, but centered (which is less common than off-centered).

    These will fit your Tachi: https://www.badgergraphic.com/store/..._detail&p=1080

    You'll have to remove the lens from the Sinar board and re-attach it to the Tachi board, for which you may want a lens wrench too.
