Help identifying a Leica lens hood/accessory 42

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

Greeting Knowledgeable Gentlemen,

 

I have a curious little accessory here.  From the waist down, it's a normal lens hood fitting the 3.5cm & 5cm Summicron, Elmar, etc.  Instead of a normal hood, however, it has a male 49mm thread on the front. It's marked "42" on the rear chrome surface that faces the camera.  Please help!

This adapter couples the 42mm front end of a Leica lens (E39 filter size) to the rear of the Leitz bellows hood.

 

See here for many illustrations of entire assembly:

P.S. You might find it very helpful to purchase a few Leica/Leitz photographic equipment catalogs in edition numbers range 30's-40's (post war era) on the auction site for $5-10. Earlier ones will have the codewords and later ones the part numbers for all these pieces about which you've inquired.

Thank you both. I do my best to research these items on my own. Many more Leitz items pass through my hands that I successfully identify myself, but occasionally I need a little help or verification.   I appreciate your expertise. 

 

Best Regards,

George
