B+W 49mm UV filter vs. Leica filter?

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for a basic UV filter for a Leica Q to protect the lens. I've previously used this with seems to be a favorable choice:  https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/756810-REG/B_W_66_1066103_49mm_XS_Pro_NANO_Clear.html

Leica seems to make their own filter since I've last looked. Does anyone know if there some advantage/disadvantage to Leica's filter? https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1204607-REG/leica_13035_e49_uva_ii_filter.html

Well, if it's just to protect lens why not purchase inexpensive filter but unscrew for shooting? I didn't like (or use) the hood/cap with Q. Ffordes had some coloured glass B&Ws for as little as £10 recently. :)

I have the B+W, not very expensive and impossible to see the difference when on or off. I leave it on always.

Any thoughts on the UV-Haze filer versus just Clear?

For protecting you should get a proper protective filter like B+W 007. Thinner thus (even) less aberrations, stronger, nanocoating for less flare and easy cleaning.
