  I have a couple of ancient Rollei filters for the old
standard. They fit the MX Automat and Rolleicord IV. While
there is possible interference to push-on adaptors from the
bayonets on these cameras they do not interfere with these
filters which push on to about the same amount on the newer
cameras as on the old. I just tried this to confirm it
  I also had at one time a Kodak type push on adaptor of the
right size which fit the bayonet camera. However this
adaptor does not allow a Rollei sunshade to go on over it. I
thought I had this thing in the case with the MX but can't
find it now. So, at least Rollei push-on filters seem to be
compatible with both the old non bayonet cameras and some
later ones.
