Leicina Special Detachable lens shade/ring

This begs the question:
Was this done to have you put (bigger) filters in-between the shade and the ring, thus avoiding vignetting, or is it just another example of the ultra-modular design of that camera (perhaps for other purposes)?

Thank you for clarifying that; now I understand the principle involved. I'll look for filters of that type.

I got an 8.5 series Zeiss UV filter used (9/10 condition) for $50. They are hard to find, and don't seem to come cheap these days. However, I can't see myself shooting without one, so I am glad I found it.
I truly didn't know about 'series filters' having used regular screw-ins on all my 35mm still film cameras and Super-8s up to now. Thanks again to Glenn for the education
