Lens Hood for Olympus Zuiko 35mm f2.8 Shift Lens

The genuine Olympus Lens Hoods for this Lens are:

Type
Applicable Lenses
US Catalogue No.
German Catalogue No.
49mm Screw-in
21mm/F3.5, 35mm/F2.8 Shift
?
?
51mm Slide-on
21mm/F3.5, 35mm/F2.8 Shift
108-210
15-214


Whilst it would be nice have the genuine article they appear to be extremely rare and when they do appear for sale are very expensive. For example a 49mm screw-in recently sold on eBay for 70!

Does anyone have any suggestions to offer as to a cheaper alternative?

I seem to recall using the hood for my 24mm f/2.8 at times. Other options are a flag or a filter holder with a lens hood.

Re: Lens Hood for Olympus Zuiko 35mm f2.8 Shift Lens

Cheap as chips, but I've used this site with some success..

http://www.lenshoods.co.uk/olympus.php

I printed mine out on plain white paper, then transferred it to black paper and laminated it before cutting to the correct shape. I've attached a couple of sticky velcro pads so I can put it on or take it off when I like.

It's a bit of a faff, but it's free and it works!
