      This works perfectly with my X100S. Has both the filter ring and hood. Can use with or without a filter--I use it with a filter, but either way it will help protect the lens. You could just use the filter ring and filter without the hood if you don't want the hood projection out too far. Nice product, matches the camera paint perfectly.

      With Fuji's lens hood and adapter ring so expensive, this is a good alternative. It allows you to screw a UV filter onto the adapter ring to protect the X100's lens. And even with the filter on, the lens hood still twists on easily. My 49mm Hoya UV filter doesn't screw on easily -- a different thread pitch? -- but it does go on.

              Comments about Vello LH-X100 Dedicated Lens Hood (Silver):

              The package includes two part: a screw-in ring, and a bayonet mount hood. Simply remove the X100S finishing ring and replace it with the one supplied. The hood assembles and disassembles quickly with a twisting motion. The fit between the hood and the ring is very good, just snug enough. Easiness of removal is particularly useful when using the flash, as the hood is partly in the way. Finally, beacause of its inner threads, a filter (such as UV) can be screwed onto the supplied ring for lens protection. This is most helpful since the X100S original lens cap cannot be used with either the hood or supplied ring on.

                This hood is really solid and nice in every way. Looks good on the camera and does the job.
                There is absolutely no reason to get the insultingly priced Fuji version.

                    The color of Vello version is slightly darker than X100s' silver part. But this slight difference adds a nice character to the overall look.

                    The fit is perfect.

                        I am pleased with how well this works with the X100S. It is high quality: solid metal and machined well. I am happy I did not mistakenly choose the more expensive alternative.

                            I attached it on arrival and plan to keep it attached permanently. A must for the fuji x100s since it also allows you to screw in a 49mm uv filter.

                            This hood plus the included filter thread adapter ring live on my x100s. Quality, fit, and finish are great. I can't imagine why anyone would want to pay more for Fuji's version, and don't understand why on earth the filter ring adapter isn't included with the camera. The front lens element is so exposed that I wouldn't risk taking it out of the house without a filter attached.

                              Bought for Fujifilm X100s, good fit and threads seem to match up fine on the adapter both at the camera interface and at the filter end. I also attached a B&W 49mm 007 clear filter (purchased separately) and the combination of adapter and filter doesn't cause and focus or lens barrel movement problems for me.

                              I leave the included hood on all the time, it is sturdy enough and saves having to clean the filter frequently. The hood is bayonet fit and if you need to use the built in flash you will need to pop the hood off to prevent the flash being blocked on part of the picture - as a bayonet hood this is easy to do. Lastly the hood and adapter seem to me to be a good colour match for my x100s lens, so it looks great on the camera.

                                  This is an excellent substitute for the overpriced genuine Fuji lens hood.
                                  Fits tightly!
                                  My only issue is that I can't figure out how to make the inscription line up with anything...maybe it doesn't?

                                      This lens shade does what it is supposed to do and I did not take out a loan to purchase it. The finish is great and matches the x100s. The only downside is that ANY lens shade on the x100s or x100 will partially block flash output because of the location of the flash.

                                      I bought this item but I should have bought original Fuji. Although it is more-less the same thing, color doesn't match with the Fuji X100S body color - hood is darker. However, it does its thing so it is an ok buy for the price.

                                      Comments about Vello LH-X100 Dedicated Lens Hood (Silver):

                                      With Fuji's lens hood and adapter ring so expensive, this is a good alternative. It allows you to screw a UV filter onto the adapter ring to protect the X100's lens. And even with the filter on, the lens hood still twists on easily. My 49mm Hoya UV filter doesn't screw on easily -- a different thread pitch? -- but it does go on.

                                      Very good product. The grey color doesn't match the x100s exactly but I couldn't care less about it as long as it stays on and protects my lens from scratch and the sun. I use a 49mm XS-Pro Clear MRC-Nano 007 Filter by B+W on it, it's perfect.

                                      There are other products, sometimes cheaper but I dealt with Vello customer service before and they were very responsive and useful. That's why I bought this brand.

                                        Exact same lens hood/adapter ring for a fraction of price. Use for outdoor photo shoots.

                                            Thsi comes with the filter adapter ring. The Hood installs and removes easilly even with a filter attahed. Also I find the original lens cap atill works with slim UV filter attached!

                                                This works perfectly with my X100S. Has both the filter ring and hood. Can use with or without a filter--I use it with a filter, but either way it will help protect the lens. You could just use the filter ring and filter without the hood if you don't want the hood projection out too far. Nice product, matches the camera paint perfectly.
