The instructions do not specify if there is a threading on before optics to put a filter.

If so, which is the diameter of this threading ?

 

I thank you.

It's 43mm ... and the dedicated lens hood is 43mm fitting too. I modified a 43mm filter thread mount into an adaptor to fit Series VI Elpro close up lenses.

I have lenses macro Raynox which I use on my Leica D-Lux 5 and I am very satisfait.

 

They have a threading of 43 mm and are used with an adapter for optics of a diameter from 52 to 67mm :

This threading of 43 mm would it enable me to screw them directly on X Vario ?

 

Obviously, there is not the quality of Elpro-D which I have on my Digilux 2…

Or it would be necessary that I find a ring reducingof 69 mm to 43 mm to use my Elpro-D E 69.

The Raynox DCR-150 is a 3 element achromat and is excellent quality and it should fit onto the X Vario 43mm thread - BUT ...

 

I have read that some Raynox lenses might cause vignetting on APS and FF formats because they might be designed for smaller formats. Try it and see what results you achieve. If it does not vignette the image the results should be comparable to Elpro R c/u lenses.

 

In theory you could use your Elpro-D if it does not vignette the image but you'd have to find a suitable adaptor. However, a 67mm to 43mm adaptor is unlikely to be available; you'd probably have to use two stepping rings which might not be practical eg a 43mm to 72mm and 72mm to 67mm. SRB-Griturn list the stepping rings.

 

Here's how I adapted my Elpro VIb lenses for use on the X Vario: http://www.l-camera-forum.com/leica-forum/leica-x1-forum/290328-q-d-coin-photography-x-vario.html

Green Man behind the choir stalls in Winchester Cathedral. Uncropped and gently developed in ACR.

 

Full zoom wide open performed well. Moderately high ISO presented no problems. The picture might have been a little crisper if I had been able to use a tripod.

My rookie mistake on my first post as the image did not show up; I am trying to post an image again - hopefully it will show up.

 

Both color and B&W images are wonderful with this camera!
