Leica 12-459 overview

  • 1Description

This Leica Rectangular Metal Lens Hood with Cap is specifically designed for the 35mm and 50mm f/2.5 M lenses. It comes supplied with a custom cap that is especially designed for this hood.

Lens hoods are primarily designed to prevent unwanted stray light from entering the lens by extending and shading the end of the lens. In addition, since the end of the lens is extended, you also get the added benefit of some extra protection from accidental impact.

    Leica 12-459 reviews

    Rectangular Metal Lens Hood With Cap is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from doesn't screw tight on 50mm f/2.5 This is a screw-on lens hood and it doesn't screw on tight, so the lightest touch against it can and will cause it to rotate, which, with a rectangular hood, is bad. There's a mechanical stop built into the design of the lens and hood that prevents it from being turned beyond a certain point on the thread (and insures proper alignment). The problem is that there is absolutely no tension at the point where it hits the stop. I'm sort-of surprised that Leica would allow this given their attention to detail.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Critical Investment The metal lens hood is a must; however, I thought I could do without the cap since I'm always ready to shoot. But the cap is easily removed and offers protection against dust when the camera is stored in my bag. Overall, a wise investment for your Leica lens.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Quality Lens Hood Got this lens hood for my Leica 50mm Summarit since it does not come with the lens. The build quality is good. It is compact and can be left on the lens all the time. I gave it four stars because it is a screw on lens hood. I prefer the clip on kind that come with lenses like the 28mm Elmarit-M. Only for the problem of changing filters. It is a real pain to have to unscrew the hood, change a filter and then screw it back on.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from It is just a hood. It fits perfectly on my Summarit-35mm lens. However, I cannot notice any distinction between leica hood and other low price of brand. It is a just leica hood, that's all. I like to give a 3 Star since the price of the hood is way too high without technological advance although I am a leica-maniac.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from overpriced but it works The lens cap is great, it works well...I'm not a big fan of the screw-on design or metal for that matter but its the only option that I know of...I would prefer the plastic design of the Summicron lens hood...oh well

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does its job Fits very well and works as a hood should work at Leica prices. Leica pricing is such that no Leica product is worthy of five stars.
