Hi all,

I've just bought this lens in near mint condition, serial 24029xx, separate lens hood, made in Canada (Midland): I suppose this is the version 1 of the lens from the 1970 (9 elements, 7 groups).
I've immediately coupled the glass to my 5d2.. it seems to properly work

I would ask a couple of questions:
1- what is your opinion about this version of the summicron 35mm
2- which Circular Pol I could buy for tho lens? which size?

This is the first version of the Summicron-R 35/2 produced between 1972-1976, replaced with the new formula of 6 elements, E55 filter size. I have the latter one and it's an outstanding lens with the exception of sharpness drop in extreme corners.

As for filter size go with E48 or better Series VII as the latter is more readily available.
