Adam, I think Leica filters tend to flare a lot because they're not multicoated. At least not the same way B+W or Zeiss filters are. If I understand it correctly, this is intentional as most Leica lenses, except the very latest designs, have non coated or just single coated elements to keep the low global contrast and the Leica signature drawing style.
Yes, I hear that about Leica filters as well..
I have one Leica filter on my 50Lux, and one on my 50APO, I have a few sitting in a box, all the rest of my lenses use to be filtered by Leica, but I've since outfitted the other M lenses with B+W filters, as I can't get Zeiss filters in my size requirements.
I think I might switch the 50Lux to a B+W filter as well.. Having to many problems with it and the Leica filter.. But I'll keep the 50APO the way it is, and if I can't make use of the flare, I'll just pull off the filter for the set I'm shooting, and put the filter back on after.
Picked up an EVF today... Not bad, works as it should. I probably won't use it for anything other then the 21 SEM.
