Q with UV filter + hood compatibles?

Recommended Posts

First of all I would like to take this first post to introduce myself in the forum and thank you for the opportunity to be able to join the forum.

I'm waiting for my Leica Q, and while I'm getting it I'm thinking of buying a UV lens protector (B + W XS-Pro Digital 010 - 49 mm MRC Nano UV Filter). The question I have is whether I can have the protector and the hood mounted at the same time. Are they compatible?

Thanks in advance!

Welcome to the forum. I look forward to seeing your posts and photos.

 

I’m not familiar with that exact filter. I doubt its a problem. I keep a B&W UV + Haze MRC filter on with the hood. Its never been a problem.

If this is for protection only, the 007 Clear MRC Nano version is adequate.

 

I only wish I had a Q to confirm whether it fits with the hood ...

I can confirm you can have both the protector and the hood mounted at the same time. They are compatible.

You might think about acquiring an op tech mini lens cover. It slips over the lens hood and protects it in a way which nothing else can. The Leica lens cap for the hood is hopeless. Never mind though - the camera is great

+1. I stopped using the Leica lens cap after the first day. I have the Op Tech lens hood. It works well to protect the entire lens. I use it in the bag most of the time. Otherwise, I go without a cap or Op Tech hood. Never had a problem.

I must have received the only well-made Leica lens cap with my camera. I've been using it  - placing it over the lens hood - since Sept. 2015, and have not had any problems with it. Works and looks as new. I use the Leica 49mm UVs II filter for protection.I

Since the lens cap on the Q is so lousy, I put a UV filter (B+W) and then the lens hoods and that was it. Never used or put on the cap and camera worked perfectly with no damage to the lens. Personally thats the way to go.

Mine works flawless as well, it is far away from lousy have a look at the plastic crap you get from other brands.

You are not the only one.   My camera is stored in its bag with the factory cap in place, attached to the lens hood.  When I take the camera out of the bag because I might be taking some shots leave the cap in the bag.  The cap still firmly attaches to the hood.

 

I only use filters when I feel the need for a filter, most typically a polarizer.  The lens hood has otherwise proven to be enough protection.
