From Fujifilm to Leica

Recommended Posts

Nice combo. I would check if the thread pitch of your filter (0.5mm generally) is different to that of your lens (0.75mm). If so, better refrain from tightening the filter to avoid damages to the lens. BTW the thread of 40/2 and 90/4 Leica "C" lenses was not made for filters (Series 5.5 then) but for rubber hoods. FWIW.

Thank you for the feedback and yes the thread pitch is somewhat different - I “just” twist the filter on to protect the lens front!  There appear to be a few filters with the correct pitch on eBay but they are quite pricey, and I plan on switching to a 35mm Summicron (or maybe Summilux) fairly soon.  Matthew
