I've finally dug out my old 4x5 Speed Graphic again, and was wanting to find a lens hood to shoot with, and a UV filter to store it with. I've measured the lens as best I can, and it seems to be about 40mm., but the S.K. Grimes directions left me a bit mechanically-challenged. It's a Zeiss Jena Tessar f4.5 150 - can anyone confirm, deny, or otherwise correct my 40mm filter size guess before I order things by mail?

Well I don't have that lens, but I do know tat 40.5mm was a common filter size. My 135 Xenar and some other lenses including some lenses from Leica i think.

Now why they picked 40.5mm is a different question

I do have that lens on my View, but unfortunately do not have any screw-in filters for it so I can't offer anything but the mic'd dimensions. 40mm inside and 42mm outside. You might be able to find a 42mm push on series VI adapter, which is what I'd like t find... Whether or not the 40mm inside equates to a 40.5 or 41mm filter is beyond me. I have the 'how-to' someplace on the hard drive...somplace
If you find out for sure, post it here cause I'd like to know!

Hello, I own a speedgraphic with a Kodak Ektar 127/4,7. Where can I get a slip on filter adapter and wich one. The outer diameter is 38mm or 1 1/2 inch.Anybody can help me? I like to use Polarizing filter and shade.

Many thanks for your answers. But I still have a problem. What means slip on to series 6 filter? Will I have the posibility to screw on filters to this adapter and what size of screw on filters will I need or can I use? Specialy I will use a polarizing filter. As my Speedgraphic is not a reflex I have to put it on and off to my lens. Is this posible with this adapters?

You need the 38mm /1.5" to Series VI slip on adapter made by the truck load in the 50s. The easiest for you might be ebay, they show up there quite a bit. Or any old camera store that has a junk drawer.

hi,
i needed the same thing a couple of months ago...a 38mm 1-1/2inch slip-on to series VI as Les describes....i made an inquiry here (i think its in the accessories section) then i went to work locating it.
anyway, i found the adapter,retaining ring and even a few filters in just one call to Midwest Photo Exchange in Columbus,OH. check out this site for the phone# and give a call:
http://www.mpex.com
they may also still have quite a few of similar smaller Graphic gadgets that aren't on their site or listed in their Shutterbug ads.
failing that, check out the "where to get" links on this site for other potential suppliers...Pacific Rim Camera comes to mind as well:
http://www.pacificrimcamera.com

Good luck,
SG

To follow up on my earlier question, a 40.5 filter did indeed fit my lens....
