Very Annoying!

I would actually accept them dropping the hood from the kit lenses. The necessarily short hood won't do that much and it's considered normal not to include it with kits.

But omitting it on the 75mm? The lens costs 900 euros! Let's be generous and assume the hood costs 20 euros to manufacture...that would still mean only 1/45th of the price!

I don't think people are just 1/45 more unhappy about the lens for that. To add insult to injury they've apparently had supply problems.

Olympus really need to start including hoods above the 500 euro mark at least.
