View Full Version : Lens shade for 21mm CV

03-19-2005, 16:03

as has been noted, the 21/4 Color-Skopar is prone to flare.
I adapted the LH1 lens shade as shown in the attachments, and found it much improved.

The matte is made from a black plastic folder, about half mm thick. I've also included a couple of shots taken in the market this morning, in bright low sunlight and shot straight into the sun, with no noticable flare at all.

Anyone found a good shade for the 40/1.4 Nokton?

Have you tried the CV shade for the 40/1.4? I have one on the one I'm testing right now and it seems to work just fine - attached via a bayonet mount.

I have used the CV shade on the 40mm f/1.4 and agree with Sean that it does the job.

Although to be consistant with my posts about the 35mm Summicron hood I should be using a hood for a 61.2mm lens. :D

Sean, Jim...

I've got the shade for the 40, and like you say, it does the job ok.

What I *should* have asked (doh!) was... does anyone know of a good shade for the 28/1.9? The one that comes with it seems pretty skimpy. I guess it would have to be vented, considering the size of the lens and its wide-ish angle of view.

Still... I have to say, I toyed with getting the Elmarit 21/2.8, and only got the CV because of budget limitations- but it's GREAT! I love this lens, and now it's virtually stuck on the camera!
The 21D viewfinder is excellent, though it is conservative in coverage - the lines are more like a 24mm than a 21mm. Highly recommended.

I don't know of a good vented shade for the 28/1.9 (isn't that a sweet lens?) but if you figurte one out, please let me know. I wish CV would make a vented version as they do for the 35/1.2.
