Re: Third-party hoods for 12/2.0 and 45/1.8 Olympus lenses

I can completely second Anders W's reply, I have the same hoods because I too prefer the more narrow and 'part of the lens' approach. The now popular big reversible hoods are too big for a small system, and often not as effective (smaller is not always better, but smaller and narrower can be even more effective).

My only gripe is with the 12mm hood that has no 'ribs' on the inside. I use lens caps at the end of my hoods, and with the 12 mm, the lens cap comes off too easily. In normal every day use no problem for me, but ribs would have been better.
