The Leica E49 UVA/IR Glass Filter (Black) is specifically recommended for the Leica Digital M8 camera. In order to maintain maximum optical clarity, the M8—with its superior sensor—was not designed with a total IR protection filter system.

This filter is designed to eliminate the pinkish/purple/reddish  tint that certain black synthetic items might be subjected to when shooting under certain lighting conditions, such as incandescent bulbs. This filter can also serve to help protect the glass in your lens.

Note: Leica recommends removing the attached UV/IR filters when using lenses from 16-50mm in analog photography

Infrared filter for the M8 camera, which does not have a complete infrared system built in
Helps minimize potential pinkish tint under cetain conditions; ensures neutral color
No light loss
Can also serve as protective filter
Should only be used with 6-bit coded Leica lenses

    E49 UVA/IR Glass Filter (Black) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expensive but necessary. I recently bought a near-mint M8.2. An IR filter is necessary for lenses used with this camera due to the thinner sensor cover glasses inability to filter IR light. This filter seems to cut way down on IR, but not entirely. Regardless, the rest of the color correction is easily done in Photoshop. Construction of this filter is first rate. Unless you're using this with an M8 or M8.2, you don't need this filter.
