One other thing I do not know how anyone used the o ring method of attaching a filter. I tried double sided tape seems like a good fit. I took a razor blade and trimmed the excees tape that was exposed . David

I've used the nail polish as paint on seven different adapters, most have been in use for a few months now. It works great and is readily available at drugstores.

 

Cheers,

Not that I'd have an issue buying nail polish, but 1.5USD/ea. of Testors enamel in white and black is working well... heh, I expect we'll have a thread soon enough comparing Testor and Boyd model paints to MaxFactor, Revlon or Uniq nail polishes

Haven't priced nail polishes... is 1.5USD wasted?

 

John, your adapter supplies in quality! Thanks.

 

rgds,

Yes, the O-ring works reasonably well... for the CV 15mm and 39mm filter: IIRC, the O-ring is 1 7/16 OD, 1 5/16 ID, US inches.

Another nice article. I am not German, by the way, just live here. I am British-Canadian, although I grew up in Denmark. Carsten is a Danish (and coincidentaly German) first name.

Has anyone used the adapter on a CV 12+ firm 1.102? What focal length did you code the lens? What were the results with B&W 486 IR filter and without? What settings did you use on the M8 menu? What software did you use for processing RAW? Any insights you can share will be greatly appreciated.

Herbert, wander thru the threads here. There are many posts as well as pix of wide lenses on the M8.

 

The consensus is that you will need the Leica version of the IR-cut filters for lenses that are wider than 21.

Actually, Herb is asking good questions. I would be interested in the answers, too. Maybe this needs to be a new thread. The 12mm range is not covered by the new firmware, so I don't know if the new firmware does anything for this lens, even if it's coded for WATE at 16mm. Also, if the new firmware can't correct the cyan drift and vignetting on the 12mm, then whether you put a Leica filter (Is there even plans for a 77mm filter? Do smaller filters work a la CV 15mm?) or a B+W or Heliopan filter on, should not make any difference. I don't think answers for these have been posted before.

So, I have purchased both the WATE filter adapter (and retaining ring) and the 90mm ltm adapter from John Milich. Now all I have to do is decide which lens to buy. I've got my 30% coupon, and have developed an appreciation for the WATE from Guy's pix, but I also have to fund my video hardware budget. Now I know why the day job keeps getting in the way.

 

I'm not going to tell the bride when I go shopping for the nail polish.

It will come to pass that we will see someone in the drug store with Goth nail polish bottles in one hand and a pack of Sharpies in the other. And, in a moment of recognition, we will immediately ask him or her how he or she likes the M8. In fact, the lore will come to be such that a person who doesn't own these things will come to be thought of as "just a Leica digital dilettante".

Classic. I have a possible solution. I said to my dear wife that I needed more soft pouches to hold things like the 21mm viewfinder, and the kenko polarizer shoe mount thingy... and she said......... no problem, I can buy some more stuff at Tiffany and they come with a free pouch !! Arrgghh!!! Keep my mouth shut why don't I ????

Got the jlm mount, got the nail varnish, got the 39mm Leica IR Cut Filter, got a little rubber ring, got a used CV 15mm and hey - it works! Huge kudos to John for his technical skills and willingness to share with us + MANY thanks to all for their pioneer spirit...

 

Took a shot in the office at home... fully open, hande held at 1/11th of a second. Can't be bad. SO pleased with the results.

 

Hadn't noticed that my toe was in shot - what a nice wide lens...

 

Best

Contact John Milich - jm@milich.com - the adaptor works perfectly - lovely piece of clean engineering in it's own right. I used Boots (UK pharmacy) own brand nail varnish. Sure others work....
