On the absence of lens hoods...

I often hear Olympus heavily criticised on this, and I tend to agree, it isn't great not including a lens hood with a lens and expecting users to pay a premium, for what is in effect, a plastic tube. However, in my recent adventures in Canon land I can confirm that it isn't any different over there. Cheaper lenses (Read not L lenses) come without lens hoods. So Oly users console yourself that you're not the only ones getting mugged on this and Canon have even less of an excuse bearing in mind the difference in economies of scale......just sayin'
