Alternative Lens Hoods

Prompted by one poster's use of a Nikon hood for the 12-50mm lens I dug in my Nikon drawer to see what worked for me.

For Olympus 12-50mm Nikon HN-2 Hood (courtesy of John Bean)

For Panasonic 14-45mm Nikon HN-3 Hood (now fits better in my bag)

For Olympus 40-150mm Nikon HS-9 Hood (52mm adapted with 58mm to 52mm step-down)

All nice metal hoods.

The authentic Nikon hoods are still quite expensive (though way cheaper than Olympus hoods) but there's always Nikon clones to be found on eBay, and in my case a drawer full of film days bits and pieces to rummage in.

Any more hood suggestions?

Regards......... Guy
