          Comments about Heliopan 59-60mm Step-Up Ring (#319):

          I have an early model Leica 180mm f/3.4 APO-Telyt-R lens (SN 2749XXX, circa 1975) that takes Series 7.5 filters. It currently has a Series 7.5 B+W UV filter with the proper Leica 14222 filter ring. I read that the thread of the filter ring is M59x0.75. I conferred with B&H's E-Mail Sales Department and asked if the Heliopan #319 Step-Up Ring was adaptable. I thought that the step-up ring could replace the 14222 filter ring, and then standard 60mm filters could be used. I didn't think the integral hood could extend over 60mm filters, but the hood does retract back far enough to clear the existing filter ring. After conducting quite a bit of research, B&H Sales was able to determine that the "step-up ring (HESUR5960)" will fit the Leica 180mm f/3.4 APO-Telyt-R lens. As for a lens hood, B&H recommended a rubber lens hood (60mm Heliopan #701060). I followed B&H's advice and ordered both. B&H was serious about expecting long lead time shipping (usually in 6-10 weeks). I ordered the pair on 4/25/2013 and received delivery on 7/23/2013. The filter adapter fits the thread of the lens and adapts 60mm filters perfectly. The integral lens hood remains retracted as it is blocked by the adapter. But Heliopan's 60mm lens hood solves that problem. This is a perfect solution to adapting 60mm filters to Leica's early 180mm APO lens with Series 7.5 filter. The alternative is to find a later production lens with 60mm filter thread. Early versions of the APO-Telyt-R up to serial number 2947024 are designed to take the Series 7.5 filters, higher serial number copies the E60 filters. B&H provided the solution for my earlier model lens together with my gratitude.
