Yes this will help.  Leica made red filters that fit over
the screw mount Leicas.  I use snips from polycontrast
filters to increase the contrast and decrease the  flare in
my M6-HM.  You can also check with #leica at newnet IRC to
get some input.  I hope this isn't a dupe posting 'cause the
'puter crashed right after my last posting.
