I'd like to get a hood for my 50mm Summicron f/2 Type 2 - Rigid. The obvious option seems to be the 12585 metal vented hood. A few questions with this one: Does the hood, which clips around the outside of the front (I think), interfere with filter use? Is the hood a bit on the large side for what is a pleasantly small lens? Is it possible to buy it with the cap that covers the reversed hood? Is it possible to buy that cap anywhere? And that leads me to the alternative, the 12549/12550 Chrome/Black Elmar 50/2.8 39mm screw in hood. This one /looks/ better to me but: Is it effective enough as a hood for the Summicron Rigid? Does it cause vignetting with a 39mm filter also in place? What size is the front opening to allow a cap to also be used? Or better yet - does the A42 slip on cap I already have fit right over it? Thanks.
Hello all: I recently acquired an M3 with a Summilux 50mm/f1.4 lens with virtually pristine glass. The serial number database at www.summilux.net/numeros dates it back to 1959. To keep the glass in this pristine state, I am looking for a lens shade and front cap, as well as a polarizing filter for it. The front thread is 43mm. The outside diameter seems to be about 44.5mm and has a groove in front that seems to be designed to accept a clip-on (reversible?) hood (and cap?), just like my Summicron-M 50mm (III-Canada). Do you know the 5-letter code and/or 5-digit code of the Leitz hood/cap and/or swin-out polarizer. Have you seen any for sale? I have put a roll through the M3 with the Summilux, and the results look promising. Now that the lens came back after a cleaning, it just sparkles and I really want the shade/cap to keep that glass pristine. And the polarizer would be nice. Thanks for your help. Guy
