Hi Jim,

Thanks for your comments. I wanted to use a deeper filter as well. I  
had an orange filter but removed the glass and replaced it with the  
glass from a 39mm UV/IR filter. So now I can use the Summitar  on my  
M8 without turning black to purple. I also have a deep red filter  
which is too strong but it works perfectly to allow me to shoot infra  
red on the M8. I find my film cameras don't get used as often either.  
I try to shoot film every week as I enjoy trying different film and  
developing it myself. I also try and exercise the shutters in all my  
film bodies every month without film to keep them in shape.
