You're correct. It does (sort of) have a "built-in" shade. The barrel
flares out at the end. It's not bad for the 50 and 35 positions, but at
28 the glass is extended out closer to the end. Leica suggests that you
can use the shade #12592 (for the 21 and 24 ASPH lenses). It does not
come with this shade.

I thought this lens didn't need a shade or had a short one built in?
