This was an original equipment lenshood for the 9-18. When screwed on, it did not orient correctly. That is, viewed from the front, the hood was tilted and could not be screwed in completely at right angles. I consider this an unacceptable flaw in a relatively very expensive supplementary necessity and poor quality control.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
ROBERT G  Lens hood is usually needed for a lens this wide. However, it does not fit corrrectly on the lens for which it is made, probably a manufacturing defect. I've been too busy to return or exchange it.
JAY H  Will it still fit if you have a UV/ protective filter on the Olympus 12-50mm?
ROBERT G  The lens hood NEVER fit correctly on the 9-18 lens I have. It would not screw on to the proper position without excessive force which I feared would damage the lens. I have never used the hood. I have no experience with the 12-50, never got to try the hood on the 9-18 w/a filter. I recommend AGAINST purchasing this item. Quality control and inspection appear to be inadequate.
Shopper  This is shown on the Olympus 12-50mm f3.5-6.3 lens. Is it the correct lens cap for that lens? If not, what is?
ERIC M  Hello, this is the correct hood for the Olympus 12-50 kit lens that comes with the OM-D E-M5. I hope this helps it works well.
