Simple question from a new Leicaphile. How do you reconcile using filters and
lens hood with two lenses with different filter threads. i.e., if I own a 35
1.4 lens which takes a 46mm filter and want to buy a 90 2.0 which takes a 55mm
filter, then it makes sense to buy a step up ring for the 35 1.4; but, doesn't
this preclude the use of the lens hood? Obviously the lens hood takes a back
seat to the practicality of using a step-up ring but thought I'd ask anyway. 

Anyone know if the the new 90/2.0 ASPH will still take a 55mm filter? Anyone
know its due date?
