Summilux 35 1.4 filter suggestions
I've recently purchased a Summilux 35 that requires the 12504 hood. I'd like to keep a filter on the lens for protection and some b&w contrast work. I've done some research and know that I need a series VII filter for the traditional setup, but I know there are other options as I've seen people using square hoods and adapter rings. Do you guys have any suggestions? Should I shell out the money for the original hood and filters or is there a cheaper solution? That being said I really like the idea of an adapter allowing me to use more commonly available filter sizes. Any help would really be appreciated, especially with links and actual model numbers so I don't end up purchasing the wrong thing.
Also, I'm sure this has been answered before, but I had trouble finding it when I searched. Thanks ahead of time, this board has been amazing in helping me decide on my Leica purchases!
