            Rubber tore after little use. Don't try to save a few bucks...just go for the Heliopan to avoid buying twice.

            Rubber split after 6 months

              I bought this hood for my Sony SELP 1650 lens. It worked fine, but after 6 months, the rubber split right behind the waffled ring.

              The price is about half of the other rubber hood B&H sells, but if it only lasts 6 months, it isn't a bargain.

                  Purchased to use on P7700.
                  It is a well made product but suffers two problems.
                  It vignettes at wide angle.
                  It keeps the lens from fully retracting on shutdown.

                    This hood is simple, works well, and easily folds out of the way. It doesn't take up much space in the bag either.

                              It didn't work for us though. We got it for the kit lens of a Olympus PEN, but it vignettes and blocks the on camera flash. Good construction though.

                                I bought this lens hood for my Olympus E-PL1. Unfortunately it's a little to thick so that you can see it on the picture when at full wide angle (14mm aka 28mm). But the lens hood itself is great.

                                  Helpful when spotmetering areas of landscapes to determine need for graduated neutral density filters for sunrise/sunset shots.
                                  Pros:Especially when side-lit, improves reading accuracy.
                                  Easy to use and lightweight.
