Filters for M
« on: May 08, 2013, 09:15:22 AM »
Hi folks,

loving my M so far, polariser is on order, but I would also like some ND's, perhaps an ND16, but I'm struggling to find anything in 43mm (other than unbranded cheapies on an auction site) any suggestions?

also, has anybody used a faderND on their M?  Again, looking perhaps for a 43mm.  LCW do a 46, and there is a lot of crap out there, what are you using and are you happy?

Cheers

Cheers Neuro

Wrong continent, I should have specified, ideally uk store recommends (tried the usual suspects) or brand recommends, already have B+W 110 in a 77mm, don't quite want something so strong, a 16, or even a 32 would be beneficial.

They do ship across the pond...   ;)  I'd say better than than a cheap off-brand.

I've got 58mm filters for my 50mm 1.4, so I just brought a step up ring.

It may come to that, I've got a fader ND in 58mm, I was just conserned about the lens movement, I don't want a stepping ring to impede movement or damage motors, from what I can see the inner mechanism doesn't retract beyond the threads...  thoughts CircuitR?

i bought 52mm filters that way they also fit my 40mm pancake and voigtlander 20mm as well as the 18-55 ef-m
then bought a 43-52mm step up ring witch can be a cute lil lens hood on the 22 if you like

i got a hoya CPL
a hoya IR 720nm
and a B+W 10 stop ND

52mm are cheap!

The thread doesn't retract further back than the face of the lens so it's fine to use.
