Oly 12-40 Generic Lens Hood?

I've lost the LH-66 hood supplied with my Olympus 12-40mm lens.

I'm loathed to pay £40 plus for an original but I can't see any generic replacements.

Does anybody know of one please?

Looked around the Chinese sites here....

....and the answer is not so far.

Cheapest is £22, but with shipping and possible tax etc. it's not worth the hassle.

It may be a while - keep looking on alibaba.com and if they have it, ebay will follow.

Plenty from $4.90 up

A Slidoo.com search of eBay shows plenty of alternatives - some screw-in:

Google translate may help. The feedback seems to say they are genuine and good.

I just noticed, I got my 12-40mm from these guys for US$900 with full warranty etc. They may ship internationally. My lens came from Japan through them, as it's not yet available in the mainland.

Unfortunately they won't ship to the UK.

Here's a cheap one, but it appears to be a screw-in with a tightening ring for orientation of the petals
