    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 certainly blocks glare on the front of my M.Zuiko 75-300mm f/4.8-6.7 II lens, which is its job, so ... good job, lens hood. Looks cool on there, too.

        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.

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