These are vented hoods and they are circular not rectangular and plain

So their design is OK for OVF not worse than the Fuji originals


I realize they are round and vented.  It's just like the hood on the X100.  I just was interested to know whether using this one with it's wider diameter impeded the view through the OVF more than the hood on the X100 does when using that set up.  Since the 35mm lens has a longer profile on the XE-1 or X pro than the pancake like 23mm on the x100 one would think it would block more in the OVF view than the vented hood on the X100.
