    Does anyone know the X Vario's filter thread diameter? Not seeing in the manual, and not on the front of the lens either ...

    I did a google search, found an owner that states it is 43mm. That is the same as the Nikkor 5cm F1.4 and early Summilux. Easy to find.

    Thanks, Brian! My google searching didn't come up with anything.

    Current Zeiss 50mm f/2 Planar ZM also uses 43mm. B+W makes just about everything in that size.

    One of my favorites is Marumi's DHG Super CPL. That just came in today in 43mm, I hope to shoot a bit tomorrow with it. :)

    Oh, and it is the right diameter, thanks!

    Using a Polarizer on the M Monochrom is a little bit more difficult. Liveview makes it easy for the new M, X-Vario, and others.

    I indexed two filters for the M Monochrom, view with one, set the other using the index.
