Other than in an SLR, where the user sees his subject looking through the lens, the effect of a polarizing filter cannot be judged in the viewfinder of a rangefinder camera. Nevertheless, many users of rangefinder cameras would like to benefit from the photographic advantages of a polarizing filter, such as higher color saturation and reduction of reflections at non-metallic surfaces. A very easy-to-handle universal polarizing filter solves this problem for LEICA M-photographers.

A hinge allows it to be swung exactly 180° over the viewfinder for composition and setting, and back again over the lens for metering and shooting. The two special adapters (threaded rings) for the filter sizes E 39 and E 46 delivered with the filter enable the use of the majority of the present interchangeable lenses for the LEICA M6-models; others for earlier lenses are also available. The new universal polarizing filter replaces the former polarizing filter A42.

Universal Top (Linear) Polarizer Glass Filter - for M Lenses is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and Effective Had to wait several months to get one of these, but it was worth the wait. Very simple to use: Just turn the filter so it covers the range finer, rotate the filter until you achieve the desired result of the polarizer, then slide it back into its filter holster on the lens. That's it. It's not cheap, but nothing from Leica is. And like everything else Leica makes...it just works.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A bit inconvenient in use and shows color cast I have been unable to locate anyone other than myself who has commented on this polarizer causing a slightly blue/green color cast on images made with the M240. While it is removable in Photoshop, I have been unable to get an OOC correct color balance with manual white balance, white card, presets, or auto. The polarizer itself is quite large, significantly larger than the older discontinued model. It also has more bumps sticking out of the sides than the older model, specifically the thumb wheel, which is very annoying if you try to carry a lens in a pocket. The lens hood is largely ineffective and inferior to the older model. In my experience, the unit has to be screwed onto the lens tighter than I would prefer, otherwise it tends to come loose. My recommendation is to simply screw a normal configuration polarizer onto your lens and call it good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Polarizer Review This is an awesome product. The polarizer works as expected with the added advatage of sight through the viewfinder.
