SCREW IN LENS HOOD? Olympus 12-40mm f/2.8 PRO
5 months ago

Hi all,

Can anyone recommend a good screw in lens hood (available to purchase from the UK) for the Olympus 12-40mm f/2.8 PRO? (∅ 62mm)

I'm looking for a screw in hood because...

  1. The Olympus LH-66 Lens Hood is not that secure for my use (as I'm using a Spyder Holster in crowded events and it's come off multiple times
  2. I would like to be able to fit and adjust a circular polariser which isn't easy with the LH-66

I've been looking around but the examples I've tried aren't wide enough and are blatantly visible through the viewfinder.
