    Adapter new: $175?
    ----------------------------------
    Total new: $5639

    I will get this right at some point...

    Yes, the Leica E49 UV/IR Filter (#13412) is mounted in the Milich adapter.

    Thanks, John...that makes me feel better. So, the combination of filter and adapter is more like $305. Miss that addition...oh, well!

    The trouble is that you shouldn't be selling it.

    On the M9 it's a darling . .. no fiddling about in menus and sterling image quality.

    don't do it!

    Just this guy you know

    Jono beat me into submission!! Keeping the WATE to see what I get on the M9. I really respect his take on things. The viewfinder is available if anyone needs one.

    I think you should wait also.
