Having had vignetting issues with the UV filters I put on the front of the Leicina's lens, I found out that the lens shade actually unscrews from its mounting 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)?

Thanks,
Claus.

This topic was discussed in a thread you started last year (Right Diameter UV Filter and Still Vignetting?). I thought your question had been answered then. The Schneider 30/2 split lenshood accommodates series 8.5 filters in an interior compartment. I believe this is the lenshood you're describing. If a filter is screwed to the lens and the lenshood screwed to the filter, the lenshood will vignette.

Glenn,

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

Just to follow up for anyone needing such a filter:

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 :)

Claus.
