Zeiss zm 35mm Biogon-C filters (step-up?)

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

Greetings from lockdown,

I just purchased a Zeiss zm 35mm Biogon-C F/2.8. Why? I don't know, I guess I wanted to try a Zeiss zm lens. I do also have a Summilux FLE, and a summicron V1 (Had a summicron ASPH, but never bonded with it).

Anyhow, I realized that this lens has 43mm filter threads and was wondering if anyone is using a step-up adapter to 46mm, and if so whether they get vignetting for 1-2 filters?

I would normally not hesitate to do this, but I ran into vignetting issues when stepping up from 39mm-46mm on a 50 APO lens (which was disappointing) and wasn't sure how well rangefinder lenses, in general and specific to this Zeiss lens, handle step-up adapters.

Vignetting is not the C-Biogon 35/2.8's forte but i doubt a step-up ring would worsen the situation. I like the superb Zeiss hoods too much to refrain from using 43mm filters though. BTW the Leica 13032 UVa II filter fits perfectly contrary to the 13417 UV/IR filter having not the same thread pitch. The later can be used with no harm if it is not tightened too much though.

Thank you for the heads up on the filter pitch...I was hoping not to add yet another filter size to my red, yellow, polarizer juggling act.

      Hopefully nobody minds me asking an ignorant question...
      I have an LTM Elmar 50mm f/2.8 and, reading the Ken Rockwell review, he recommends a Yellow #022 39mm filter for b&w photography with that lens.  However, what I am really unsure about is how the filters fit to my lens and, if I am not to buy an authentic Leitz/Leica filter, what I need to look for on eBay, etc.  I don't see any thread inside the collapsible lens so I am guessing that the filters either fit over the lens like the lens cap or somehow grip onto the inside of the lens.  
      Grateful for any insights plus suggestions re where I can get them!

      Hi everyone. Got the B&W UV filter for my new Q2 as recommended by several Q/Q2 friends to protect the glass, however, I have a trip coming up with lots of water/beach days. Wanted to know which model Polarizer filter everyone may be using. Any positive/negative feedback welcome. I was looking at the following two, but not married to either.  Thanks!
      B+W 49mm Circular Polarizer MRC Filter

      Just took delivery of a new Leica SL and will be using it primarily with my M lenses (50mm f/2 APO, 21mm 1.4, 75mm 1.4) and would like to know if I will be able to see the effects of a polarizing filter through the mirrorless electronic viewfinder. Never used a polarizer with my M camera or M Monochrom because it was too much of a hassle to look through it, position it for the effect, then re-mount it. Was not able to find anything about this in the voluminous manual so I coming to you for help. Also, would a linear filter work as well as a circular polarizer with the SL?
      Thank you all.
