Alternate lens hood for Oly 12-40?
4 months ago

Hi,

Are there any other lens hoods that fit the 12-40? It always seems to keep falling out even when it was new. I don't like the design and today it split open and some springs came loose. New one is $40 but I have dropped it some many times becuase the hood button releases seem to be the cause of the problem.

Anyone used this:

Thanks
