Sumilux M 50mm f/1.4 lens + Filter = Vignette

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

Friends:

 

I noticed that using the Sumilux M 50mm f/1.4 lens with a BH filter gives me a vignette. (Darker on the edges of the image than in the center)

 

Is there a way to use a filter for protection and not have this problem?

 

Thanks amigos,

What's a "BH filter?"

 

I doubt it's the filter that's causing your vignetting. If you slide out the hood, you'll notice it extends far more than any filter ever would... The Summilux-M does have inherent vignetting when used wide open and doesn't completely go away until about f/2.8 even with coding.

 

Check out the vignetting test near the bottom of this review.

Perhaps a "B+W" brand filter? I notice the B+W filters I have do have an effectively thicker ring, that protrudes a bit more into the glass area than my Leitz filters.

Older B+W filters, yes. The regular B+W UV filter on my 50mm Summilux ASPH has a mount that is no more than 4mm deep beyond the thread. A Leica-branded filter is 5mm. Slim-mount filters, without the front thread which is pointless if you don't have to screw a hood into it, are even thinner.

Thanks for the education on the vignetting of this lens at wide open! You all are most kind!

As noted, wide open you will notice vignetting. In my use of the lens the vignetting has increased with lower light and with the hood extended, again at 1.4 and 2.0. It is easily rectified in post processing.

      I got myself a Voigtlander 15mm lens to go on my m262 for my England trip.  I had a great time shooting landscape and buildings with it.
      I shot everything in RAW+JPEG.  For on camera review, I was just using B+W only.
       
      I was preparing for some sort of vignette from such a wide angle lens, but I did not expect to see the magenta coloured vignette.
       
      I am wondering if anyone can give me some guidance on how to remove the magenta vignette.  (See attached photo)
       
       
      Thank you very much

      Running backwards, Drive on continuous medium, Shutter speed priority.  24/90 at 24.  Some frames show vignetting, others don't.  
       
      Thoughts?
