Re: 12-35 zoom

it is a fair point, I have never tried to use the hood to compensate for flare.

A lens hood is also there to avoid some flare. Why don't you use it?

Good advice, thanks

Mainly because it adds even more bulk to a lens that is already very big on a GX1 and a m43 system. I have found that I never needed it on the 14-45 and 14-42x in the past so I never bothered carrying it as I ended up never using it and damaging it for no reason. I'll do some test to see if it makes sense on the 12/35
