Oly LH-48B hood for 17mm f1.8

Great piece of kit, only 60'ish.

My problem is not the price but it's attachment to the lens, it has a clamping system which to my eyes looks most insecure.

Is there some reason for the clamp over the usual screw thread (46mm) ie vignetting or something.

Could it just be to reverse the lens for storage?

You can get a screw on metal slotted hood for less than a tenner on eBay.

Just check it doesn't show up in the photos.
One I have is ok on the 17mm, but not on the 12mm.

Re: Oly LH-48B hood for 17mm f1.8

I bought the JJC clone for about a tenner. Same fitment. Would rather a more secure fitting but not complaining at the price I paid. The 17mm f1.8 is a lovely lens and reminds me in many ways of the old OM Zuiko primes.
