I just got my black chrome 50mm Summilux ASPH (11688). As a number of people who have received their lens have pointed out in this thread http://www.l-camera-forum.com/topic/242441-new-35-cron-and-50-lux-available-in-black-chrome/, the hood won't fit over numerous E43 filters people have tried. I tried with my Carl Zeiss E43 UVa filter, which attaches to the lens just fine, and in this case the hood also won't fit. I thought I would illustrate the problem for two reasons: 1. As a warning, should this affect any purchase decisions. It would seem a normal E43 filter and the supplied hood cannot be used at the same time. But also... 2. to solicit advice from people less mechanically-challenged than me! Perhaps I'm just not doing this right, and there is actually a solution. Please help! Okay, here are the pictures to illustrate this problem - Note the female groove at the top of the lens barrel. The hood has squeeze tabs to pull these grips flush with the lens. The hood has a male groove that stops the hood being lowered any further than this groove. Releasing the tabs moves the grips back out and they clamp onto the female groove on the lens. Attaching this filter (and I presume many others) does not cause a problem with the overall circumference to clear. This one is perfectly flush with the lens barrel. Here is the hood affixed without the filter. Note the height. Here is the hood affixed with the filter. The extra height created by the filter prevents the grips from reaching the female groove on the lens barrel. It has no grip at all really and would come off at the slightest bump. The issue then is one of height. I'm not sure if any filter will be thin enough to avoid this problem. Thoughts...? What am I missing here?

I am looking for a Summilux M 50mm f/1.4 ASPH black chrome edition lens. I have a like new Rolleiflex FW with W-Apogon 4/50 lens to trade. This is the exact same lens as the Schneider Super Angulon 4/50 with HFT multicoating used on early production FW cameras, with the name changed for licensing reasons. From the serial number, I believe the camera is from very late, near the end of their production of TLR cameras. Probably 2012. The styling and black leatherette covering are the same as used on the last model Rollei/DHW made, the highly collectible FX-N. A new original strap is included. The camera has seen very little and careful use. Comes with box, manual and inspection certificate. Great camera, but want to get back into Leica M. I also have a near new Rollei lens shade and a new Rollei/DW Photo 45-degree prism available for the camera. The camera was purchased from Shouten Select. The prism was purchased from Leica Store Lisse/Photo Henny Hoogeveen. Images of the camera are used with permission from Marco at Schouten. I can send more details and new images.
