Well, we're all gushing over the beloved 43ltd but none of us have been willing to fess up the it's dirty secret....the silly screw-on lens hood.  Not only is it fiddly & inconvenient but the thing is silly expensive if you loose or otherwise say, stop on top of it with your pickup. It;s then you realize what a huge flaw it is for an otherwise perfect sliver of glass.

After buying a replacement, I can't abide not having all the OEM bits for my gear, I went and bought a nice few inexpensive collapsable rubber lens hoods to share between my lenses.

ButI just thought someone should confess about this "horrible" flaw which pretty much renders this jewel unusable to any "real" Pentxite.  

Hmmm. I actually see it as a strength. Pop off the excellent quality lens cover and you are set to go. It also offers very good lens protection. But I don't use filters. Don't like anything coming between my high quality glass and my subject.
