Just one more variation on the Leica line of lenses. Both have been on the market for long time, the Summarit has been redesigned recently. Both excellent lenses.

would the Leica 46mm filter still work with the lens hood on?
Asked by: Aaron
You can use the 46mm filter of your choice with this lens, with or without the hood, but you cannot attach or remove a filter with the hood on. The hood screws into threads on the outer barrel, coming to a complete stop with the hood in perfect alignment. The lens also comes with a ring to cover these threads, should you prefer not to use the hood. (The product image at the B&H website of the lens without the hood shows the lens with the ring on.) The filter threads are on the inside of the lens barrel, and have a smaller diameter.
