p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Leica R 19mm f/2.8 V.2 Built in filters. Does ND x1 setting = no filter present? Or is it a real ND?


Hey everyone, I just purchased the Leica R 19mm f/2.8 V.2 and I'm super impressed by it! I just had a quick question regarding the built in filters.

Is it 3 color filters (KB 12, Or, and YG) and the ND x1 setting means there is no filter present?

Or is it actually 4 filters and ND x1 is an actual ND filter? Since there isn't a "No Filter" option, does this mean the lens isn't actually an f/2.8 since there is always a filter? Or is it an f/2.8 even with ND x1?

In which case, the permanent presence of ND seems like kind of a handicap in certain situations where you might want the most light available to the lens.
Thanks!

NDx1 = clear filter. There is no reduction in transmission.
