    Large lens hood

    This lens hood is compatible with the new 75-300mm ED lens but is oversized and bulky, especially when stored on the lens.

      Comments about LH-61E Lens Hood for Select Olympus Telephoto Zoom Lenses:

      This thing is HUGE. Seems to be of good quality and only around $[$], great for Olympus. Seems to do its job of blocking stray light. Olympus should include this on a lens that costs over $500!

        Used on my 75-300 Olympus lens. It does what a hood should.

        Actually, the lenses listed are f/4.8-6.7 not f/4-5.6.

          This is an excellent addition for the M.Zuiko Digital ED 75-300mm lens. It will prevent light flares and protect the lens from impact damage.

                Perfect fit. Reversible storage position on lens. A $500+lens should come with one, along with a storage bag.

                      I use it for my 70-300 zoom lens to prevent sun flare. It's easy to use and a very necessary accessory.
