Good to hear you like the lens. About filter threads, they used to be "standardized" but nowadays the filter thread just is teh size matching the design of the optics, you you will find many different filter sizes. Something I actually applaud (matching the filter thread size to the optics design, filter size has more to do with field of view than with the f1.4 figure)), even though I do understand your standpoint too.

I know. I had between 40 and 50 lenses in the past 20 years and still own about a dozen...

The thing is, a 72mm thred would be perfectly fine for the 35G! Even the bajonet hood would still fit and 72mm would at least match other actual Nikkor lenses (105DC, 135DC, 180). I see no sane point in introducing the odd 67mm into the Nikkor fix focal lenght lineup...

I use a 67-77mm step-up ring with a perfectly fitting short 77mm metal hood now. The lens is not prone to flare anyway and the orginal bajonet hood is quite bulky.



I often think Nikon engeneers have no real clue how a photographer has to struggle to fit their oversized lenses in a decend bag. (I could rant on this for hours and have a closet full of bags to proove it... <img src='http://forum.photozone.de/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/biggrin.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Big Grin' /> )
