I have some 77mm Tiffen Digital HT filters that I bought in a lot on ebay that are silver/metal toned. Bought them from a Canon user. Don't know if they are still offered by Tiffen.

actually I need a 49mm size filter for the silver 77mm Ltd.

I would like to keep the lens silver... the only lens I ever wanted in silver since this lens looks just like an old rangefinder

Sorry, misread - I saw silver, filter & 77mm and I thought about my 77mm filters...

Just looked at the Tiffen site. Doesn't look like they offer 49mm filters in the Digital HT line.

Pentax used to. I had one for my silver 77mm. Check with your dealer.

What kind of filter do you want? UV, SkyLight . . .

Pentax has made some off and on since the 50s. That also made filters in black with silver trim and lettering.

For modern coatings etc., you are better off going that route. I have the vintage Pentax filters mainly to go with my pre-Spottie bodies.
