    Just Right

    Because the 40-150 lens reaches out so far it is vulnerable to have the sun shine on the lens causing flare on the images. Enter this nifty lens hood ...problem solved! It is easy to fit on (with clear arrow indication) and clicks firmly into place. When you store your camera away, the lens hood is reversed siting comfortably over the lens so fits in the camera bag. I also like the idea that the lens hood helps protect the lens glass and should you get caught in the rain it keeps the rain off the glass so not spoiling the image. Being Olympus brand everything fits together perfectly with a quality feel about it.

    Pricey

    Fits OK -- should have been included with the lens. Prefer petal shaped hood. Could have used better materials - the hood can flex.

        Comments about Olympus LH-61D Lens Hood:

        It's a lens hood does its job. Bayonets onto lens, installs reversed for storage just like a good little m4/3rds accessory saving space. Expected it to lock in place like the included hood on the Pro ED 12 to 40. Come to think of it why is it not included with the lens?

              It fits, it keeps out stray light, what more can I say....... Still think Olympus should include these with their lenses but the price here isn't outrageous.

                    Comments about Olympus LH-61D Lens Hood:

                    If you use zooms it's best to keep a hood on the lens not only to reduce flare but to increase contrast and as protection for the front of your lens. Olympus hoods can be mounted in one direction for shooting and reverse mounted for storage or in camera bag.

                      It fits the lens it is designed for. It keeps my OMD pretty compact even with the zoom and hood on, which is important to me because I travel a lot. When out and about I just use the hood, no lens cap to always be ready. Very functional. I guess I could give it 5, but really, is is a cone shaped piece of plastic. So that would be sort of silly, no?

                        Comments about Olympus LH-61D Lens Hood:

                        It's a lens hood. I'm not a good enough photographer (yet) to be able to catch little things that might matter, but... it fits my Oly 40-150 lens, it seems to be manufactured well (no defects, scratches, etc.), and all that. Seems to be a sturdy enough plastic I don't expect to have any problems with it.

                        Only problem I have is I bought a 58-62mm step up ring to use my 62mm filters with the lens, and of course, the hood doesn't fit over the oversized filters. Duh.

                        Only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because... it's a round piece of plastic. Not enough "stuff" here to fall 5-stars in love with.

                          This is listed on the M.Zuiko lens box as compatible... and it is. No problem. Nice long hood with very good effectiveness. With hood in position for use, however, you don't have the finger space to reach in and remove or attach the lens cap; you have to remove the hood or reverse it for storage to attach or detach the cap.

                                        Also, very good price

                                          While this hood is made of plasic, it feels like it is polycorbonate which pound for pound is stronger than steel. The bayonet mount works very smoothly with a crisp click when it locks. When reversed, it stores neatly on the lens and takes up little room. It looks to me that this hood will last for the life of the lens.

                                              Comments about Olympus LH-61D Lens Hood:

                                              Because the 40-150 lens reaches out so far it is vulnerable to have the sun shine on the lens causing flare on the images. Enter this nifty lens hood ...problem solved! It is easy to fit on (with clear arrow indication) and clicks firmly into place. When you store your camera away, the lens hood is reversed siting comfortably over the lens so fits in the camera bag. I also like the idea that the lens hood helps protect the lens glass and should you get caught in the rain it keeps the rain off the glass so not spoiling the image. Being Olympus brand everything fits together perfectly with a quality feel about it.
