    Need advice for UV/IR & 35 Nokton 1.2

    Hi I need some advice, I'm waiting on a 35mm Nokton 1.2 (52mm filter thread I believe). I still haven't claimed my free M8 filters so I went online to do that, and I found that there is no 52mm Leica UV/IR filters.

    I need a 39mm filter anyway so I'm getting one of those, but whats the best solution for the Nokton 1.2? a 55m filter and a step up ring maybe? would the hood still fit though? or should I just get a third party 52mm uv/ir and sell the second Leica filter - whats the most common size?

    Get Leica 46mm uv/ir filter. It is one of the most common size. You will likely need one in the future. You can get a B&W 52mm uv/ir for the nokton.

    You don't want 55mm filter as the hood will not fit over the top.

    I use a Tiffen 52mm "Standard Hot Mirror Filter" with mine, and have used these filters for almost 20 years. They were made for the original Kodak DCS series cameras which also suffered from IR bleed through. These are professional grade filters, and often fly under the RADAR screen for IR cut filters. I picked up a couple for my M8 at $20 each.
