A good lens hood is essential and the M.Zuiko 45mm lens really should have come with one. The hood probably costs $1 to make and is overpriced for what it is (a small piece of plastic), the cost of packaging and distribution is what drives up the price and there is no excuse for not including it with the lens. Other than the cost, I can find no fault with the lens hood. It does a good job of preventing stray light from hitting the lens, and it snaps on easily and securely. Be aware that there is a protective / decorative ring on the lens that must be removed by rotating it counter-clockwire before the hood can be attached.

Well made and fits securely. Lens is so small it seems to demand this extra protection from bumps. Don't plan to take it off. It does not interfere with filter or lens cap access.


works great

Always have a lens shade on my lenses and this one provides exceptional protection from extraneous light rays. Goes on easily with a single twist. Light weight too.


designed for the job

A hood is essential. This one is designed for the camera. It fits firm and leaves me totally confident.


Gets the job done


from Seattle, WA  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

It's a lens hood - so it gets the job done. I wish it was made out of metal vs plastic but that's okay. Most DSLR hoods are plastic anyway. The overall build quality of the lens that it goes on it far less than the 12mm f2 lens. But at the price that it goes for, I guess I can't complain. I wish Adorama did a better job securely shipping the lens hood. It was sent in an envelope type back which gave it no protection. When I got it, it the box had been crushed but luckily there was no damage to the hood.
