Hard to find hoods and filters

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

Just in case somebody needs rare-sized hoods or filters, e.g., for the Summarit 50mm f/1.5, and doesn't mind a third-party item, check out HeavyStar (HeavyStar Photo Gears Home Page). They make a vented metal hood for the Summarit 50mm f/1.5 that would actually stack onto an E43 filter, and supply an E41 to E43 step up ring with it. So I can use 43mm filters between the step up ring and the hood. I've also purchased a 39-43mm step up ring for a Summicron 50mm f/2 Dual Range, so I'll be able to use the same filters and hood with it as with the Summarit. The hood itself comes with a cap, and caps for 43mm lenses are also sold. The prices are reasonable. The hood (incl. step up ring and cap) for the Summarit costs USD 24.88); the step up ring for the Summicron, USD 6.95. The hood and step up rings seem to be aluminum painted flat black.

 

Regards,

Richard

Yes, HS is a great source for bits and pieces that are good substitutes for some of the original Leica parts offered at outrageous prices on Fleabay.

However, I haven't seen many of his hoods in silver finish (most are black, unless this has changed recently), which looks much better on old chrome lenses.

The good news is that other CN vendors on the Bay now offer what seem to be the exact same products but with a silver gray finish. Competition and choice are good.

      Hi everyone.  
      Just bought an X Vario and I normally use a lens hood.  I can't find any of the original or JJC replacement 18774 available anywhere.
      Does anyone have any experience of other hoods at all?  I was wondering if the LX100/D-Lux hood would work without vignetting for example.
      Any suggestions?

      LEICA Q (Type 116) 24.2MP Full Frame Summilux 28mm f/1.7 ASPH Lens Digital Camera. Condition is Used (purchased June 2017). 
      Includes all original boxes and documents, Leica Q strap and lens hood, plus one spare Leica battery and charger.
      I will post within Australia for free (standard shipping by Australia Post).
      I have been extremely happy with this camera and I'm only selling it to upgrade to the Leica Q2.

      I have an aged lens that has a loose integrated sliding hood, since it's fitted outside of the lens group/barrel, it might not need an expert to do it.   Does anyone know how a DIY trick?

      Although the pro/ con discussion has been beaten to death in numerous forums, I feel obliged to urge my fellow Leicaists:
       
      1. Use filters, use filters, use filters!
      2. Better still: close hip bag properly

      M7 & Cron 50 V with Leica UV filter after full drop on asphalt. Body and lens elements seem to be miraculously undamaged (besides minor mark on retractable hood). Focusing is butter smooth and aperture clicks softly (lens and camera visited Wetzlar half a year ago for a full CLA). I still have to find a way to remove the filter, though, which seems cold-welded to the lens thread...
       
      Kind regards
