Love this lens and ordered a lens hood from fleabay. It came today but will not fit. Anyone got a 45mm 1.8 lens that has a bayonet fitting lens hood, mine has no bayonet fitting, just a filter screw.

Twist the silver ring off the front of the lens. Bayonet will be revealed ; )

Just tidies up the look, but yet another little thing to lose. As Oly meanly don't include a hood, I suspect many people don't bother with one for this lens.

You could keep the ring safe in the pouch Oly give you for the lens. Oh no, my mistake....
