Hood for the Oly 12/2?
May 27, 2012

Bought an Oly 12/2 today ... at the big grocery store next to Stockholm airport.

Well, that's where the seller (who wanted some cash to finance his new D800) and I met to close the deal. Even by US standards, 600 USD for an "as new" copy (originally purchased in January) and still under warranty is a pretty good deal I think. And compared to the normal Swedish price tag of about USD 1,000, it approaches a steal. So I couldn't resist even though I am not sure that I really need this lens (especially since I already have the 7-14, the 14, and the 14-45).

But ... now I have it anyway. So next question: hood? And no, I am not in the mood to shell out another 100 USD or so to get the original Oly stuff. I am sure there is something that works well, and hopefully looks and feels good too, out there for far less money.

So what are you people using, hood-wise, on your 12/2s? And where did you get it? Would love to see your reports, and pictures too of course if you have any.
