CAUTION: Spyder Holder w/Olympus 14-40mm f/2.8 PRO Lens Hood
5 months ago

Hi all,

For anyone who users the Spyder Holster (either model) a word of caution about the Olympus 14-40mm f/2.8 PRO lens hood.

The hood is held onto the lens with two 'buttons' which protrude out of either side of the lens. However if you use the Spyder holsters in the recommended way one of the button will be pressed against your thigh and the hood will come loose.

I had almost lost it three times in 3 weeks and finally lost it yesterday somewhere in London. Unfortunately the replacement cost is £40 for this simple piece of plastic which is damn annoying.

I'm now off to order another one which will be taped to the lens to stop it happening again.

NOTE: I'm not trying to 'troll' Olympus die hard fans... I'm just trying to prevent others from shelling out another £40 as it's damn annoying.

Regards
