I did a search on eBay and scored a 45mm hood for $12 and a 75mm one for $30-something. Both work splendidly - JJC brand.

Indeed - JJC appears to be the go-to brand when Olympus fails.

On my Four Thirds DSLR the bulb mode required you to hold in the button for the duration if you didn't have a remote, meaning there would be camera shake. It was a stupid limitation in the first place, and made even stupider by the $40 Olympus remote which lacked essential features.

Thankfully JJC had a remote with more functionality and an included battery for $5. I've bought three and lost one. They've been great.

Too bad Olympus made such a bad decision about not providing hoods for even the premium lenses.
