considering this lens.

i am a landscape shooter, and i will have a polarizer on it 100% of the time. i understand the front element rotates when focusing, not a biggie, but i am confused at the pictures where the threads are for the filter? the lens expands and contracts at different focal lengths, correct? it almost looks like if the polarizer wan on and you contracted the lens you could not get to it to turn it? i know sounds insane, but i just want to check.....

Hi drdrew,

See the responses to my questions in the thread below. It helped me understand more about what happens with this lens as it zooms through the range.

Leica 35-70/4 with grad filters

That's my understanding. You would have to zoom out, rotate cpol, then zoom in.

If you buy a thin-framed CP and use it at or near infinity at 70mm, yes, that's accurate. Leica and B+W made thick framed E60 UVs and CPs for the lens that will work. You'll want an E60 cap for them, though. The Vario-Elmar's dedicated cap is closer to 63mm.
