In two weeks I will be shooting a short 16mm student film on an Arri SRI w/ a zeiss 10-100mm T2 MK1 seen here:

I am planning on using an 82c cooling filter on it, however, I am absolutely clueless as to which filter size I need for this lens. I almost purchased a 72mm version when I read somewhere that the lens front was 80mm, I'm not sure if it even takes threaded filters, and I don't have access to a matte box because we can't really afford one. Does anybody know or have an idea of what kind of filter this lens takes? Series 9?

Thanks!

I can't answer your question, but I can say that I did the same thing for my previous camera which I thought I had read on the net that it took at 27mm filter but it ended up takin a 20 mm filter and of course I had purchased TWO 27 mm filters (only 5 bucks each ) but still it just goes to show you don't buy the parts for your cam till you alredy have it and are reading the manual or takin it to the video shop with you!! :) good luck!
