Hi folks,

does anybody have any an idea what size filter thread the old sweet Angie has? Seems to be around 49mm but I am not quite sure... I desperately need some NDs for that.. ;) Thanks!

Cheers, Dave

An old Angeniéux factory brochure I've got indicates 45.0mm diameter with thirty-six threads per inch.

That's weird that they would mix metric and US units. 36 tpi comes very close to 0.7mm.

Hi, Dave.  I'll scan the center pages and send them to you directly.  I haven't a clue how to embed documents or images at this forum.  Glenn

Hi, Jean-Louis.  It is strange.  The main table of the brochure shows only the diameter of the front thread of the lenses, using symbols to direct the reader to footnotes giving the various pitches - two of them metric and two fractional.  Glenn

Thanks to Glenn we know have a wealth of info on old Angies! He scanned this very informative table for me. Thanks again, mate!

So it really seems to be 45mm and 36 tpi.

 

Best, Dave
