LH-61E Lens Hood for Oly 75-300mm II

I picked up a 75-300mm 1:4.8-6.7 II at TPS. Before I cough up the outrageous 30-40 for a new Oly one, I just thought I would check to see if anyone wants to sell one first? As it will probably get removed and reversed quite a bit, I'm reluctant to go for a JJC cheapo one, as the fit sounds a bit flaky.

Thanks,

I don't have what you are after (might do some time soon though!) but I have the JJC version on my 12-50. I have no issues with the fit or structurally but maybe the 75-300 version is worse (I suppose that could be due to its size).

Thanks Dave. I've got the JJC for my 45mm, which is a fairly poor fit, and I read somewhere that the 75-300 version was stiff, but also from others that it was fine! Any experience of the JJC 75-300 hood welcome thanks. It really is annoying Oly haven't changed their policy on including them as standard, as it grates every time.

They are seeing sense at last as the 25mm f1.8 I bought at TPS has one included. Come on Oly, your glassware is expensive enough and should include these most basic of items.

Yes the JJC is a bit stiff, nothing a few minutes scraping the mounting lugs on the hood with an exacto knife wouldn't cure, and a little #2 pencil lead. Mines is still stiff, but fits much better.

Bristol Cameras are doing the Oly one for 26, so I caved in (some people are charging 40 quid for it!)

LOL Stephen. Indeed. I know it's rare. I've bought several lenses from them, and they rarely have stock, but usually get them in quickly, and often have good prices.
