Which lens hood?

Just bought an Olympus 75-300mm lens for my E-M5. I would like to use a lens hood to reduce flare. There is the flower type, rubber fold down or olympus style full hood. Any recommendations?

Chris

that works well apart from when reversed it doesn't 'click into place

Try this site for hoods and other bits and bobs.
I got some a while back, gd prices and speedy service. They have an eBay page too, their prices are slightly dearer on there I've found.

Re: Which lens hood?

I use a an old metal screw on hood (Sigma, I think) via a 58-67 step up that I have from my OM SLR days. It looks really good, works well, and is not bulky although it does mean I can't have the lens cap on. When reversed the lens (with cap) sits in it in my bag in a nice snug fit.

Re: Which lens hood?

If you want to go more compact you could modify a JJC Lens Hood for 61D (for the 40-150 kit lens).

This is what I use.


This is an original LH 61D.


And the trimmed JJC version to fit the three lobe mount of the M75-300 lens.


The hood reverses too & this fits in my bag much better than the much larger 61E hood. If you should do this then I also recommend you apply graphite from a soft pencil to help prevent any binding.
