Filter thread sizes for 16mm lenses
Posted 14 December 2012 - 07:54 AM
Can anyone point me in the right direction or does anyone know the filter sizes for the following lenses:
Angenieux 12-120mm T2.2
Angenieux 17.7-70mm T2.2
The third is a Schneider 23mm but I dont think it actually has a filter thread. The Arri Mattebox will do for that lens unless anyone has a cunning way to mount the filter?

I did exactly that and "my" 12-120 has a 72mm ø...

The 17.5-70mm is more often used with a series 7 adapter.
I've never heard of a 23mm lens. You must mean 25mm?

I'm guessing that 12-120 is a f2.2/T2.5 , something like that? Red vs white markings on the aperture ring?
Using the series 9 holder with a round rubber sunshade was the common way with that lens. If you use a Cokin P system what shade options do you have?
3x3 filters are cheap now on eBay. They are ok with that zoom. Series 9 I think are fairly cheap now also.
Back in the day (cue misty eyed memory) I found heaps of good cheap 72mm screw ons. At 12mm stopped down I was just starting to vignette in the corners. I used my series 9 holder as a base for a home made round sunshade, but most of the time I used a light weight 3x3 matbox. I commonly used the 72mm rounds in the box in front of Scneider primes.
If you go series 9 let me know, I may have that kit for sale.

Jean-Louis... Exactly, 25mm that was a silly typo!
I am planning to use a rail system and swing-away mattebox with the Cokins. So then I can attach any length of lens.
I could measure the lenses I suppose. The problem I was contemplating was I didn't want to go into a camera shop and "try" the stepdown rings and then have to leave as they are hideously expensive around here and I'd be ordering them off the net. So I was really just being lazy i suppose and i'm grateful for the people who took the time to answer..
Got to be honest I've had to Google the Series 9 system as I'd never come across it before. Interesting...

You can probably get them pretty cheap nowadays.
