            Comments about Heliopan 40.5mm Metal Lens Hood (Short):

            Not too many options for 40.5mm thread hoods. I tried this for the Sony 16-50 E-mount lens.

            It's surprisingly low quality - its made of a very thin, cheap-feeling metal. It feels like it will deform very easily if you put any pressure on it. As a comparison, Nikon's metal hoods feel much more substantial.

            More importantly, this hood won't work on the Sony 16-50. It won't block the lens outright, but it will induce vignetting in the corners at 16mm.

              Olympus does not make a hood for the EPL-1 but my salesman found one perfect.

                    Comments about Heliopan 40.5mm Metal Lens Hood (Short):

                    this metal tiny hood works great on my small Samsung NX100 camera - I searched until I found a metal hood that works with my 20-50mm tiny lens (30-75mm equal). It doesn't stick out and is solid light weight metal. No negatives so far.
