    Leica Lens Hood

    Can I use a rectangular lens hood for my 35mm 1.4 pre-asph?

    Welcome to APUG.

    I know that there is a square one that fits the pre asph 35mm Summicron and I see no reason that this one would not work on a pre asph 35mm Summilux as well. But I must confess that I do not know the model number on this lens hood…

    Since a Leica lens hood is a topic, let me recount an experience. I was taking pictures in Bryce Canon, when my Leica hood came off and dropped down a cliff. Each time it bounced off the rocks as it disappeared into the depths below, I counted : ten dollars, twenty dollars, thirty dollars.........

    There are 2 official Leica hoods - what is your lens number? In principle, you can use a rectangular hood if it is the right fitting and not too deep and if your lens mount does not rotate while focusing.

    Regards,

    I believe the is a ridge on the newer lens and a groove in the hood so the hood doesn't rotate.
    Heavily sedated for your protection.

    How much is a replacement hood for a 35 Summilux pre-ASPH? Are they still available? I just dropped my M6 onto concrete, and the hood was badly dented. No damage done to the camera though.

    I know the 35 1.4 pre-asph vented hoods are rare and expensive. You'll probably spend around $125-200 for a decent one.

    The current 35mm 42mm clip on cron hoods will fit, but are expensive new or second user, not done a full test but no sign of vignette yet. You get less flare with the square hood.

    P.S. there is not a notch on the lux to stop the hood rotating and some are close to the aperature ring but an elastic band helps a lot, or a nail file on the hood nubs
