Hello - This is my first post here so bear with me. I recently aquired a 50mm C Distagon. Everywhere I have looked the specs tell me it is a 63mm screwmount. 63mm does not fit. Way too small. any reccomendations. Anyone in the know on this particular lens?

The official Hassy filter for this lens is a 63mm drop-in filter (no threads, also called Series VIII) that is held in place with a filter retaining ring or the lens shade. You might try a 67mm threaded filter, but be careful, the threads mught not be the same, so don't force it.

Thanks - the 67 is too small as well - 70 seems to be about right

I got that off the Hasselblad site - it had some extended lens specs for a model which was similar to what you posted, but had some suffix letters slightly different. That bit of the site said 70mm screw thread. Looking on the internet though, there's loads of different strangenesses with Hassy filters - I guess because there are so many lens variations.
