    The product is great, however it is for the Zuiko Four Thirds NOT M. Zuiko MICRO Four Thirds lens. So I bought the wrong item because I didn't check the specs fully!!! :-( If you have an MFT camera you need the LH-40 (B&H #OLLH40.)

    I hated having to buy something that should come with the lens. I really bought it to fit my 14-150mm m43 lens and it does. I intended to use it for both the 14-42 and the 14-150, but the new 14-42 must be much smaller diameter than the original. It fits the lens I wanted [...]

            Comments about Olympus LH-61C Lens Hood:

            For some reason, Olympus does not provide lens hoods with their lenses. However, don't let that deter you from getting them for all your lenses. This is well made and does the job as needed. Just this week, I knocked over my tripod with a different camera/lens combo and the lens hood broke, but protected the lens and camera from other damage!

              Comments about Olympus LH-61C Lens Hood:

              I only give it 4 stars due to price, otherwise it is a very good product. This does the job it is meant to do but Olympus should have included what amounts to ten cents worth of plastic with the purchase price of a $500 lens.

              It seems to help some when using the 14-150mm lens outdoors. But does not seem to shade as much as is really needed @ 150mm.

                This lens hood works well with the Olympus lens. But really Olympus should include these with the lens like Panasonic does.
