I own an Olympus Zuiko 17mm f/2.8 Pancake lens that I intend to use mostly for indoor photography like parties, weddings etc and so a hood might not be that important. But I feel comfortable having one and the LH-37EP hood is available very cheap from JJC and other third parties. But I think that it is a screw on hood and so will I be able to fit it if I have already gor a 37mm UV filter screwed on?

One thing you can do to avoid any vignetting effects from a screw in hood is to use a step up ring with a larger sized hood. They're all pretty cheap out of China to experiment.

Thanks but I do not know which brand makes larger hoods. So fat I have only seen the JJC and uWinka ones on the web.
