Re: What about polarizers?

Interesting! But I must admit to being somewhat skeptical about this, even from such an accomplished photographer as you.

Polarizers remove reflections, eg on leafs, which can make a dramatic effect.

However, I've now put the CP setup on the Tri-Elmar. What a pain! And the filter holder has holes in it, which let light in from the back!

I'm going to post questions about this wacko design soon, in another post, but what can you tell me, Irakly?

pretty soon you will find that with leica m lenses colors are saturated enough even without a polarizer. that is, of course, if you use the hood.
