BTW, since there are at least 56 different 35/2.8 Leicas, can you tell me precisely which lens this is?
(If I understood all the bloody versioning stuff with Leicas, I might actually own one).
My lens is the Elmarit-R, 2nd version. Apparently, this version is optically identical to the newer third version, which has a built-in hood and sports a standard (55 mm) filter thread. The third version is about 100g lighter than the 2nd, which I would interpret to mean that it also has more plastic (maybe) incorporated into the design. The 2nd version has a 48mm filter thread, which needs to be bumped up to 49mm with an adapter ring. Even so, with the adapter ring and a slim B+W CPL, I don't get any vignetting. The serial number is the key in making sure that you don't get a 1st version of this lens (lower contrast, prone to flare).
