The Olympus hood is a push-on hood with a thumbscrew to secure it in place, so it's quicker and less fiddly than a screw-on type.

Ah, right, thanks Richard, I should have remembered. Someone mentioned that. I have to say I still think the bayonet is superior in ease of use and security.

Cheers, geoff

No, actually the thumbscrew locks they use on these are superior units. once locked, the hood is literally part of the lens. I grip the lens (12, 17 and 75) by the hood when mounting and removing it. They definitely are going nowhere once locked on.
