Want to use threaded filters with the Pentax 07 Shield Mount lens? Simple hack. Just push on a 43mm -> 46mm step-up ring. It will fit snugly over the outside edges of the lens. Seats perfectly at the half way seam where the 2 halves of the lens housing joins.

I have a 46mm CPL that I wanted to make use of, but you can step up to whatever size that meets your own personal needs.

Very neat looking, no glue and easily removable. Though leaving the step-up ring in place allows an added benefit to use a pinch lens cap with the 07.

Finally got time to modify the 07 Shield Mount lens for infinity focus using 2old4toys method. Took a little doing to get the glass element to move. It does focus to infinity now. Also added the 2nd hole to the lens mount for closer focusing.

By the time I finished up, it was too dark to get any photos. Looking forward to using this set up later.

Thanks again 2old4toys,
barondla
