Series filters for 12586 hood

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

I have the 12586 lens hood for the 50mm f1.4 pre-asph lens. The unit unscrews to accept filters (I assume). What series size filters do I need and how are they held in place? I understand that I need to use a special slim 43mm filter if I want to hood to fit, but I'd rather just use drop in filters if that is possible. Why else would the hood unscrew into two parts otherwise?

Thanks

Hello LarryK,

If you mean this 12586 (from Wiki), this hood never intended to be separate to drop-in filter like

35mm 12504 hood (for Serie VII filter)

12504 from Wiki

I have one 12585 which unscrews but no place for a filter between the two parts, the threaded parts may be there for construction purpose.

If you want to try, here some infos ...

Maybe filter of Serie 5.5 or VI can be put in your 12586.

Filter Type Filter Diameter
(inch — mm)
Retaining Ring Size
(inch — mm)
Lens Diameter
(mm)
 
             
             
             
Series 5.5 1 19/32 40.5 1 23/32 43.7 31 – 40  
Series VI / 6 1 5/8 41.3 1 3/4 44.5 31 – 42

Been using 12586 hoods for many years and i did not even know that they have two halves. Are you sure of that? Too bad i have not one with me. Anyway the 12586 hood was never intended to be used with Series filters. Filters for the Summilux 50/1.4 v1 and v2 were all M43 x 0.5 ones with the following code numbers AFAIK. Blue: 13173 - Infra-red: 13196 - Orange: 13176 - Polar: 13351 - Red: 13191 - UV: 13206 - UV/IR: 13417 - Yellow: 13161 - Yellowgreen: 13171.

The hood indeed unscrews just like the 12504 hood. Mine has the same number as the photo you provided, but the engraving is worded a bit different. I think mine is older.

Thanks for the 43mm filter code numbers, that is very helpful. Will the 12586 hood fit over those filters? I know the standard BW filters will fit the lens, but they are too thick for the hood to clip on.

I have only two of them (IR & UV/IR) but both do fit indeed. Hardly surprising given that they were made for that ;). I mean on the Summilux 50/1.4 v2 as i have no experience with v1 but i'm not aware of any difference re filters between them. You may wish to ask on the Collectors & Historica forum to be sure.

      I must admit that since acquiring it several years ago, I do not much go to my Noctilux 50mm f/.95. My biggest disappointment is that while I really want to use it for portraiture, the minimum focusing distance is so far that I am unable to fill the screen with my subject. Instead, I must back away significantly and then crop. So, before I consider selling the beast, I thought that maybe forum members could post their favorite .95 images to persuade me otherwise.
      I'll start with a photo from the .95 that I am happy with.
      Happy New Year!

      Tell us about your M lens disasters.
      It is painful even to think about something happening to those precious little gems, let alone experiencing it.
      What was the worst that happened to your M lens?

      For me, it was water droplets between elements in my Noctilux 0.95 from a job in Southeast Asia. And I am not counting the french kiss with concrete floor of my 28/2.8 III Mandler Elmarit in Afghanistan.

      Hello,
      I am selling my Summicron 35mm, in near perfect conditions. Has no scratches on the optics or the body. Focusing ring is smooth and the apperature ring is clicky in all the right ways. 

      Comes with the box, accessories and papers. 
      As im based in Paris you can come check it out or pick it up. I can do delivery depending where you are based. 
      I remain avaialble for any questions

      Hi All, 
      I put the Voigtlander 35mm f1.4 Classic on my SL2. It is not a recognized lens, so I chose the Summilux M1:1.4/35 ASPH. 11873 lens profile.  Everything works great except the Aperture setting recorded on the shot does not match the aperture setting that I used on the Lens. I have also tried the 2 other M 35mm lens profiles in the menu with different but still incorrect Aperture recorded in the shot.
      Can someone share with me how to capture the right Aperture used? Do I need to create a custom lens profile? And if so, how do I do that?
      Thanks much for your help.
      -patrick.
