    WTB: 55mm Leica UV/IR filter or trade for 43mm

    I need a Leica 55mm UV/IR - I have a 43mm which is surplus to my needs (like new in case). Could do a straight up trade if that worked; alternatively cash...

    I bought it for a LHSA Summilux which I just sold (never used the filter)...! $168 for a 43mm filter is really pushing it, even by Leica's high standards...

    Just once, I'd love to be in a position to sell something to Leica that they really need and see how deep I could stick the blade in...!! BTW Jack tells me you want your Metz back....

    Don, I'm not sure Guy has read that far into the owners manual for his Mamiya 645 yet... And I haven't had the heart to point those pages out to him.

    C'mon Jack - he'd be the first pro in history to read a manual (I can confirm that the manual he sent me with the Metz was pristine and could have passed for new). He'll be wanting an 76 MZ5 - then he'll be able to shoot all those landscapes at night too..

    I actually read the manual. Certainly 1/16th the size of the Nikon D300 which will never get a glance. LOL

    Then you saw the part about the recommended flash, and didn't have regrets for selling yours --- good

    Guy:

    I have the big Metz 60 if you are looking for a big gun. It is the 60 -ct4 and has the twin head and cord.
