Sorry, the 45mm wasn't too hard to find. Ordered one from JJC. Got this brand for my x100 and was fine.

How about the plenty of offers for the 17mm 2.8 screw in 37mm hoods? Would that work with the 17mm 1.8 as well? It is the same filter thread and FoV.

Nope, 46mm is the right size for the 17mm f1.8, not 37mm.

I already had this hood for use on the Panasonic 20mm f1.7 and it works just fine on the 17mm f1.8..
