Panasonic 14mm Lens Hood Solutions?
Apr 23, 2013

Just picked up a Panasonic 14mm f2.5 off ebay fro $179 to add beef up my GX1 kit. It's a nice little lens and a great match for the GX1 and my 20mm.

I'd love to find an interesting and simple lens hood solution. On my 20mm I have a 46mm to 37mm step-down ring that works great, probably because the front lens element is set back into the lens body a bit. I tried it on the 14mm and it really doesn't do much, except look cool. Fun, but ineffective.

I have B+W 46mm folding rubber lens hood kicking around, but prefer the simplicity, low-profile and ruggedness of the step-down ring on the 20mm. I have a vented hood, too. (yep, gearhead )

So, has anyone cooked up some sort of lens hood solution for their 14mm they'd like to share?

GX1 w/20mm, B+W 46mm UV filter and 46mm to 37mm step-down ring.
