My first real shoot with my new LEICA VARIO-ELMAR-R 35-70 mm f/4.
All taken w/o at f/4...I'm going to like this lens!

Dave, actual dimensions of the "Blackbird" and "Shuttle" are impressive

Yes! a CP, that's all I have left from my 200.

Any takers? Whenever I discover where I have shoved it

Re the rubber. Rubber needs oil in it and using alcohol just sucks the oil out and gives that white, dry look that you are trying to fix. Try to clean it with a gentle lens cleaner (which has ammonia in it) but ultimately you need to put the oil back in the rubber and there are various products for vinyl/plastic/rubber that can do that (like silicon).

Ha, funny about the serial numbers. Ultimately I guess there aren't that many, and it may have been a single run or maybe two.

My general feeling is that digital polarizers are not that effective, and so I don't use them. Do you feel that this is worth it? Thinking of your shots, you do go for high contrast, bright colour shots, so I suppose it fits right in for you. I would buy one for completeness, but I guess the prize will be very high.

For me it's worth every cent, all 65,000 of them. I should have bought the filter when I bought the lens (I've had it about 15 years) but held off for many years, they are just so damn expensive for what they are. But for me, for car photography, it's a must-have filter. You wouldn't need it for people.

By the way, there are 2 similar drop in CP filters and they are not interchangeable so make sure you buy the correct one if you decide to get one. You need the 13340 for the 180/2, see below.

Sorry to mislead you, I have uploaded the wrong pic as the correct 13340 has an open loop.
I will give you the heads up when I locate my 13340. But in the mean time, I have spotted a 13340 for sale at a rather low price. Caveat Emptor.

I am sending you the info by PM.

It's a joy to use 13340 or 13338. That's why I'd rather spend $$$ for 13338 instead of the 77mm CPL on my 280/4 APO.

I think all of them do that trick, tho I would probably avoid "hard" ones. That white stuff is just dust and oxidized layer of rubber (aged). There is some silicon stuff which can sorta "conserve" rubber.

http://www.ssrfanatic.com/forum/f5/product-actually-works-repair-oxidized-trim-rubber-weatherstripping-24783/

Something like that tho I would be careful and take a good look what exactly is inside that can.

I was trying to find this cause rubber parts on my old Minolta are quite oxidized. Tho interesting is, that I have one older (non-working due failed IS) and that has rubber in perfect shape. Cant figure how its possible, except maybe some rubber has simply much higher quality than other.

oops...only now discovered that the 280/4 APO also takes a polarizer...

will the 13340 or 13338 be the right one for this lens? There is a 14591 clear filter in the drawer right now.

I will stand in the queue after Carsten for filters up for sale

ok, I found it myself, the right one for the APO Telyt 280/4 seems to be the 13338 which is hard to find.

Hmm, car shots with the 180/2... I am not sure there is enough space in Germany for that, maybe I would need to live in Australia

I am sorta considering it. I now have two links to filters for about 200 Euro or so, but am wondering if it is worth it. Btw, what is that messy edge on the photo of your filter? I see that also on one of the links, and it looks horrendous...

Also from 35-70/f4, but in B/W (no further PS tweaks). This lens always produces very high contrast images, one of my favorite.

Thanks for bringing it to my attention. I can see it on my phone (Samsung) but not on PC browsers. Damn technology.
