The dedicated silver Vello LH-48 Lens Hood is specifically designed for use with Olympus's Zuiko 12mm f/2 ED Lens.

Lens hoods are primarily designed to prevent unwanted stray light from entering the lens by extending and shading the end of the lens. A dedicated lens hood is designed to perfectly match the specific focal length of the lens it was designed for. Moreover, this hood features a non-glare matte finish on the interior surface to further prevent or limit lens flare. And since the end of the lens is extended, you also get the added benefit of some extra protection from accidental impact.

Designed to accommodate the exact angle of view of the camera's lens.
Minimizes flare and ghosting by blocking out stray light.
Protects your lens from accidental impact and the elements.

        Comments about Vello LH-48 Dedicated Lens Hood (Silver):

        Less expensive than Olympus brand. Keeps glare off lens front as it should. Odd attachment with a built-in screw that tightens a metal band to hold this on the lens. Haven't had it long enough to assess durability.

            Comments about Vello LH-48 Dedicated Lens Hood (Silver):

            This lens hood is constructed well, easy to use, and attractive. I have bought other third-party hoods for my Olympus lenses in the past, and this is of higher quality than the others. I can see no drawbacks to buying this reasonably priced hood as an alternative to the official one offered by Olympus.

            Since the Zuiko 12mm is a metal lens, I was a little worried about whether the hood would match it in hue. My concern proved to be unfounded.

            I am very pleased with this purchase.

                I have Olympus branded lens hoods for other lenses I own, and the quality of this lens hood is on par with them at about half the price. It fits just fine and so far, I haven't had any issues with it.

                    No problem with this hood working with Olympus 12mm lens. Easy to attach and remove, and about half the price as the olympus hood.
