OEM lens hood for 20mm f1.7?
Sep 5, 2011

I am going to purchase the 20mm f1.7 for my G2 but I can't find a lens hood for this lens, even on the Panasonic website I don't see one offered for it.

I'm a firm believer in lens hoods & love to shoot backlit subjects, here is an example of a typical shot for me & my G2....

...a good lens hood is a requirement for these types of shots imho.

I've found some after market vented lens hoods that will thread onto the 20 mm f1.7's filter threads available on Ebay(very cheap btw), but would rather have a genuine Panasonic hood if possible. Doesn't Panasonic offer a hood for this fabulous little lens?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

Dan.
