Hello,

 

Je ne crois pas que cela est possible.

Le filetage du Leica X type 113 est de 43 mm alors que celui du Leica Q est de 49 mm.
Il faudra ajouter une baque intermédiaire, ce qui n'est pas très intéressant...

Guytou

Im not talking about the filter thread which i know is different as you mention...im refering to the screw in lens ring on which attaches the square metal lens hood

Anyway ill come back and measure the size of the lens ring on the Leica X

Hopefully someone can verify the size of the lens ring on the Leica Q...

Hi all,

The thread of protective ring measures at approx 57.9mm

I was wondering if someone can confirm the thread size/diameter of the leica Q lens hood?

I'm curious, why not use the lens hood made for the X 113? I used my X113 without and kept the hood in my bag for conditions where it seemed necessary to prevent flare. The X 113 lens coating is really quite effective. It seems like the Q hood would add significant increase in profile to your camera.

I tried looking for the proprietary hood for lecia x 18774 but it is discontinued.

The protective filter ring on mine is a bit damaged so i went looking for a replacement, however Leica Miami has only silver in stock.

So i then thought about using the leica Q hood which imho looks quite nice and keeps the lens from looking too big. I use my leica x typ 113 for streetphotography so trying to keep it minimal is important i feel.

Hi all, 

I emailed a Leica rep as it turns out that even though the diameter of the thread is the same between the Q/Q2 and X113, the thread pitch is different, so the hood will not work. Unfortunate as I did like the Leica Q hood.
