    Excuse me for going off topic, But I read somewhere that putting colored filers on the monochrome, throws off the focus coordination between the rangefinder patch and actual lens focus. Have you had any issues with the colored filter?

    Thanks

    This doesn't sound plausible to me: as far as I know, a Leica rangefinder focuses through a mechanical connection between the lens (cam) and the camera body, using the windows on the body for illumination - a filter on the lens would have no affect on this.

    If the metering sensor, which reads light that has gone through the lens, has a non-linear colour response, then I can see that a filter might affect the meter reading, however.
