      I purchased this to be able to add a Hoya HD2 uv filter to the camera both as a filter and mechanical protection for the lens. Because the lens is in interchangeable, bumping the lens makes the whole camera useless. I also bought a pinch lens cap to cover the filter when the camera is off and keep things safe while traveling.

      The adapter fits well, matches the look of the camera, and does what is required.

      The adapter does work well as an adapter. The only downside is that for some reason it interferes with the flash. It causes a minor shadow to surface on the left lower part of a picture. The shadow is thin and barley noticeable. I took a series of pictures with flash and with and without adapter ring and determined that the ring is the root cause of the minor shadow.

              This allowed me to go cap-free, instead using a clear filter to protect the lens. Works beautifully, but I'll always wonder if I could have saved $$ by getting the knockoff you can buy elsewhere. Good news is, I'm mighty content - sticking with this one.

                  I use this ring to allow the use of a 49mm plastic lens cap. It also puts a tiny ridge around the end of the lens, not enough to act as a hood, but enough to help keep stray fingers away from the front element.

                        Works great. I bought mainly to attach a plain UV filter to protect lens which obviously can't be taken off and replaced if damaged. I think this is better than hood. I know one can jerry-rig a set up by breaking the glass out of an old filter but is such a nice camera I did not want to cheap out. Fuji nation, rock on my friends!

                        Does what it says it'll do. Shame the lens cap won't fit after but that's a small sacrifice for the ability to add a world of filters. Looks good on the camera too.

                            Although putting a filter on the front of your X100 will render your lens cap useless, this is vitally important to protect the lens itself.

                              I recommend the JJC version of the hood. This could've at least come with a filter.

                                                This ring allows the use of any 49mm filters/accessories. It is very well made,light and matches the X100 finish well.

                                                      Works well for photos (flare prevention) but cumbersome when using. Needs to be removed to place lens cap. Could have been better designed. There is a cheap chinese knock off being sold via [...], but it is of very low quality (shade fits too loosely on adaptor).
