The Hoocap is brilliant and has won several awards. One touch and it changes from lens cap to lens shade while staying on the lens. Very nicely made. Unfortunately it only is made for one mft lens, the Panasonic 14-42. If enough asked, I am sure they would make other sizes.

I would love to get one of these if they made them for my GM1 kit lens or 20/1.7

They list the Panasonic 14-42 as the only lens supported. I'm assuming compatibility depends on filter size and FL vs hood shape? Any tips on a Hoocap for the GM1 kit's 37mm or the more common 46mm used by many m43 lenses?
