The price would be less of an issue if the damn things were at least available:)

The people's disappointment would be less of an issue if the people saw things from a wider perspective.

The delays are a norm in tech world, unfortunately. Try to order aforementioned iPhone 5 now. (I wouldn't but it's at least 4 weeks delay, just FYI). And the bloody Lightning to 30-pin Adapter is not available for existing iP 5 owners until who knows when in October.

And that is the most valuable IT company in the world that can't provide accessories at product launch.

Or, in camera world, Canon 1D X started to ship after like 9 months since it was announced. Or, Nikon fixing D800 focus problems in a slow pace.

In the grand scheme of things the mishaps above make way more people in the world unhappy than Olympus by not supplying hood.

So, feel lucky that you at least got the lens.

Or, return it and wait for for a miracle, like someone else makes the same or better lens with the hood and sells it for the same money.
