Ah ah ah...

Not so fast Dan. According to the Leica literature ALL SL, SL2, and R
cameras REQUIRE circular polarizer. The quickest reference is Gunter
Osterloh's book "Applied Leica Technique" page 195. All of these cameras,
according to Gunter, contain a "beam splitter" which mandates circular
polarizer use.
