Because I have a Konica FT-1 and a 49mm linear polarizer. Step-down from 55mm causes vigneting.

So far I found just 28/2.8 Tokina SL-28 and Tamron-F but they are very rare and I wish something not so wide. m42-AR adapters are damn expensive and I don't have m42 -lenses also any more.

Most that I have seen are 55mm.
It might be cheaper to buy a 55mm polarising filter

No-name linear polfilters (55mm) are in the range of 5-10.-- CHF/EUR/USD, the Hoya circular polfilters are about 40.--.
If you have decent lenses for your Konica, a (used?) 55mm polfilter is probably the cheapest solution.

yes, especially if I can sell my Hoya filter to some OM or m42 -user Smile

I rarely ever use a filter these days, last time I used one was 3 years ago.

Are you shooting film?

I have a cheap 55mm polarizer, yours for the cost of shipping. pm if interested. Though I suspect you can find them locally for less. Anyone that deals with legacy cameras will likely have a stack of them.
As I have a stack of UV filters and a few polarizers all were attached to lenses I bought.

Yes, both b&w and color.

Thank you!

I'm actually thinking of buying a 55-58, Takumar or Helios, which I can use with an EOS 300 and if I get an adapter for Konica too?
