Will a BAY type filter adapter fit on a Kodak EKTAR 127mm f4.7 lens that's on my Crown? If so, does anyone know what size.

Thanks

No, the lens' barrel doesn't have the female bayonet.

Regrets,

Dan

Randall, let me try to clarify this. Assuming you are talking about the bayonet filters like on a Hasselblad, yes there is a way to use them.

First, the only way to attach a filter to that lens is to use a Ser. VI slip-on filter adapter. I believe it takes a 1 1/4" adapter. That gives you threads to work with on the outside.

From there, you can either use Ser. VI filters directly, or, with a step-up ring go up to another size filter.

But, if you want to get to a bayonet filter attachment, there is an adapter from Ser. VI to BAY 50 [for older Hassy filters]. I'm not familiar with other bayonet filters or adapters for them. I know this works because I have that combination [why, I don't know - never have used it - another of those "seemed a good idea at the time" things, I guess}.
