Using my Leica 120mm lens on my S 006 in conjunction with a Lee filter lens.


I see subjects that may benefit by using a filter. The Lee 72mm adaptor is fitted to the lens however to focus... the filter ring comes into contact with the forward moving centre focus element only by a couple of millimetres. This prevent correct focus.


Any one had this issue and how was it resolved......

I wonder if the lee filter adaptor has a longer thread than a normal filter, and protrudes into the lens barrel area a bit further and causes issues.


Do you have an accurate depth gauge or could you hold a filter up next to the lee adaptor to see ? (If I was still working at our local camera store I would take my digital callipers in and do some measuring next time you visited, unfortunately Im not there anymore) 


If the adapter has a longer thread than the filter, I would buy the cheapest filter i could find, then remove the glass (with a hammer if necessary) and then screw the adapter into the filter, and use the filter to stop the adapter from poking in too far.

Roger I gave up on using Lee GND filters and instead blend two or 3 images in PS
