PS - maybe this is why it's 1.5x the price of 45 !
Nah, the high price is all down to the lens hood - they are making sure you buy one of these ridiculously prices accessories instead of getting a much cheaper 3rd party alternative!

On the plus side your initial report is very encouraging and if your two pictures are anything to go by it's an absolute bargain - although of course you must take a little of the credit.
