It could be screwed on the summicron 35mm asph, but it won't stop at the center. This hood is for summarit 35mm or summarit 50mm.

I assume this hood is compatible with filter use? Guessing one attaches a 39mm filter to the internal threads, and the hood to the external threads. Can anyone confirm?

YES.. you're right
