Hi Mark,
I haven't had a lens shade on my Noctilux for at least 20 years or so when
it first was available in the early '70's when it first came out. I mean
what does one do go around hammering nails with it? ;-) Or banging into
protruding things.?

In my case the two pins the shade locked on came loose and felt out so I
threw the lens shade away as leica wanted a hug amount of money to put the
pins in, so my response was, screw it! ;-)

So M7 and Noctilux  ride along in place on shoulder or neck for

After all, it does sit back in the lens mount fairly well and you'd have to
be pretty close to knock the surface against something to do damage.
