I've come across an S3 in apparent good operating condition along with an f/1.4 50mm Nikkor. Although I have Ds 700 and 300, I did many years ago own the S3 with the f/2 Nikkor and a bizarre attack of nostalgia is nudging me to return to those thrilling days of yesteryear where I had to do more of the work, including straightforward rangefinder focusing with a body lighter than my DSLRs (but I've not retired my DSLRs).

I "sort of" remember that the filter size for this lens may be the good old 52mm, but I'm not sure and also not sure if the screw threads are the same pitch as the modern filters. Can anybody here clarify the filtet situation? Would the best place to look for a sunshade be eBay and/or are there classic-camera accessories suppliers? Finally, I'd appreciate suggestions for a good, used exposure meter (Weston, Sekonic, etc) up to, say, $75?
