Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 with lens hood? with step-down ring

I use a rubber one which was a little too long at the back. It projected beyond the thread and because the lens element moves when focusing it impeded it. I shaved it down with a craft knife and now it's OK.

A hood definitely improves the lens. If only I could get one for the 14-42X. Impossible, of course. Why impossible?

  • I use a 37mm rubber lens hood on the 14-42X it fits perfectly. I also use the same hood on the 20 and 14 mm but with a 46 to 37mm step down ring which avoids the interference problem you mention and makes the combination neater
