Technical Details


Product Description

Size: 46mm

Lens hoods extend and shade the end of lens preventing unwanted light straying into the lens. Since the end of the lens is extended, you get the benefit of some extra protection from accidental impact. Each dedicated lens hood was specifically created to match the specific focal length of the lens it was designed for. Photographers can easily attach the lens hood on the dedicated bayonet mount, and after usage mount the lens hood on the lens in reverse for a compact storage solution.

I bought this to use on my Olympus 17mm 2.8 pancake lens, using it on an Olympus EPL-l. The hood fits well and in a way also serves to protect the lens from knocks etc. However, I still felt I needed a lens cap and didn't want to have to keep taking the hood off to put the original 37mm cap on the lens. Well, I've been an olympus fan for many years and still have a few OM system lenses which I use with this camera (with the appropriate adapter). Most of these lenses have a 49mm filter thread and I have quite a few filters and a few caps that fit 49mm. Lo and behold there is a filter thread on this hood! AND the thread is 49mm. So not only can I clip a 49mm lens cap over the hood I can also screw effects filters onto it. I'm still experimenting with this but am sooo pleased to be able to fit these filters etc onto this lens.

I picked up two of these hoods, one in 37mm and one in 46mm, to use with micro 4/3 lenses. The build of the hoods is ok, but the filter threads are a little rough, which is why I dinged it one star. Not a work of art, but fine. More importantly, I tested these hoods with 3 lenses: the Olympus 12mm and 45mm, and the Panasonic 25 f1.4. Here are the results:

-The 37mm hood was tested on the Olympus 45 1.8, and works great. No vignetting.
-The 46mm hood works OK on the Panasonic (which comes with its own hood), but there is some slight vignetting at maximum aperture
-The 46mm hood is NOT SUITABLE for the 12mm lens. There is clear mechanical vignetting at all apertures. In other words, you can see the hood in the viewfinder, and you cannot fix the problem in post-processing.

This inexpensive 46mm thread lens hood mimics that made for Leica lenses. It's well-made of metal and works well with the Panasonic 20mm F1.7 lens for Micro Four-Thirds cameras.

It pretty much does the job, it screws onto the lens/filter. The material is metal and really durable. Plus it looks good on my Lumix GF1. Not much else I can say about it, it's a lens hood. 4 Star rating because you can't really put a cap on this thing.

This vented Leica style hood was purchased for use with a Lumix 20mm f1.7 lens on an Olympus Pen EPL 1. There is no noticeable reduction in the lens' autofocus speed, also fitted with a 46mm 1B filter, nor is there any vignetting. The hood can't be stored in reverse position on the Lumix 40mm and the lens cap is not accessible with the hood on. These are minor concerns in view of its excellent functionality and super value for money.

Size: 43mm Verified Purchase
The reviews seem a little mixed and overlapping here. My review is for the 43 mm lens hood, and not the other sizes, which some other people have reviewed here. While it appears, according to others, that this is a good little hood for some lenses, I can't give it a good review for my Panasonic LX100. When my focal length is 24 mm, there is noticeable vignetting. I do have a 43 mm UV filter on the camera, so I removed that. The vignetting was not as bad at that point but still quite noticeable. Since I shoot at 24 mm a lot, and this is one reason I got the camera, this lens hood is of no value to me. I gave it 2 stars instead of one because, for my purposes, I cannot use it, but the construction quality seems decent enough.
