Subject: [Leica] R 19mm and polarizers
From: John Bohner <>

I've just had some prints made from Provia 100 slides.  A few were taken at
6000 feet in Canada with The 19mm Elmarit on an R8.  Looking at  them I
think they would have looked better with a polarizer taking out reflections
and improving saturation.  I have no idea how to work a polarizer onto the
19 mm.  Does any one have any suggestions beyond duct taping one to the
hood?.  I know its not a good idea to polarize big sky pics due to the
variation in polarization with sky angle but this was looking down a river
bank with wild flowers.  This question actually applies as well to any
filter not already inside the 19mm R such as a neutral density gradient.

Comments are welcome
Thanks in advance
