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

      The optical and mechanical elements of the lens are in excellent condition, with clear glass and perfectly smooth focusing. The retractable sunshade has some minor damage but that does not interfere with the optical or mechanical operation of the lens, that work superbly.
      The sale also includes an original Leica R-M Adapter ROM, #14642, in new condition, as well as a 60mm Leica Uva filter to use with the lens.
      This lens has an exceptional optical resolution and color rendition.

      Hey all,  was curious about how the technical aspects of the Zeiss Biogon lenses ( 25mm or 28mm ) would match up with the CL + adapter. Im between either of those or the TL 23mm Summicron. Main use cases being travel and street photography.
      The image render from the Zeiss seems almost better than the 23mm but worried that it wont perform as well on the CL vs a dedicated lens. 
      Has anyone used both on a CL or T? 
      Thanks in advance.

      Hi All, 
      I put the Voigtlander 35mm f1.4 Classic on my SL2. It is not a recognized lens, so I chose the Summilux M1:1.4/35 ASPH. 11873 lens profile.  Everything works great except the Aperture setting recorded on the shot does not match the aperture setting that I used on the Lens. I have also tried the 2 other M 35mm lens profiles in the menu with different but still incorrect Aperture recorded in the shot.
      Can someone share with me how to capture the right Aperture used? Do I need to create a custom lens profile? And if so, how do I do that?
      Thanks much for your help.
      -patrick.

      Hi, does somebody own a Leica Summicron-M 1:2/28 Edition "Safari" or has seen real life pictures? I’d love to see additional pictures of the lens except the one official photography that’s spread all over the web.

      Most of us seem to be photographers as well as collectors.
      Show me your favorite lenses, old and new alike.
      I like the Noctilux range for the extreme apertures, but I prefer the Summilux range for the best speed:size/weight ratio.
      Here’s a Summilux gathering of 21, 24, 28, 35, 50 and 75mm. All in black.
