I have the 28-35-50 Tri-Elmar.  The cap from Leica is a push on cap that is
rather deep, which prevents one from turning the lens hood around and
slipping on the cap.

But, if you put a filter on the Tri-Elmar, and get a slim push on cap from
Schneider, then you can mount the lens hood backwards and push on a cap.
Very convenient.

The B+W IR cut-off filter comes with that cap, by the way.

  I?m eventually interested in the filter adapter to the tri elmar
16,18,21mm (WATE)
  Can any one inform me of the price and from were can I buy it? (any pics
of it?)
  Is there any cap to the tri elmar (28,35. 50) hood? I just receive the
WATE and the cap seems very practical.
