12-40 lens hood - arrgh!

I have just lost the second lens hood for my 12-40 zoom. Despite the locking mechanism they have come loose when carrying the camera.

At 40 each I am loathe to buy yet another one. The Chinese copy makers don't seem to have got round to it yet.

Does anyone else have this problem?

I am thinking of getting something like this: http://www.wexphotographic.com/buy-h...ns-hood/p12117 - at least it screws into the lens!

Re: 12-40 lens hood - arrgh!

I did have a problem like that when I first got the E-M1 and the 12-40, but never lost a lens hood. Then I noticed that only one of the lugs on the lens hood has a locking mechanism. So I put the lens on the other way around. - Upside down.

Problem solved!
