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):

    While placing my order for the X100T, several accessories were suggested, including this Vello brand lens hood. I didn't give it much thought as to the qulity of Vello products, as I have several of their items purchased for my DSLR kit. The hood attaches to the X100T with no issues. There is a slight hue difference of the silver compared to the X100T body, but I don't care. It's already paid for itself, having protected the front lens element and barrel from minor knocks and bumps as I walk about. The price is very affordable, so it's a win-win.

      Got this for my X100T. I can't imagine the Fuji equivalent could be any better for more than three times the price. Fit and finish are equal to the Fuji equivalent.

      I originally but the Fuji hood which saved my camera from a fall. I decided to go with an aftermarket hood to save money. Build quality is comparable to the Fuji good but the color is slightly off.

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

        The quality is so good I can't tell it's generic brand and for only a fraction the price of an OEM. The hood does block a little bit of the OVF anyway I only use the adaptor ring for attaching protection filter. Nice packaging too. I wished it's sold in Canada. B & H had it delivered in no time.

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

        It is well made, but it obscures a portion of the optical viewfinder, and it blocks the flash, both of which are important in my use of the camera.

            Great product. fits well on my x100t. Only issue was removing the current ring on the camera. It took a google search and watching a youtube video to get the courage to put a little elbow grease on unscrewing the ring.

              I purchased this hood and ring 2 days ago. The quality is perfect but the problem is that it is not attachable to my x100t lense. I wounder how other customer use it on this model lense?

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

              I have read reviews about this particular hood before my purchase and I wanted a fresh and open opinion. On my copy, the color variance is not that noticeable....you have to really really sit there and look at it, it fits well and I personally leave it on all the time because I wanted a small walk around camera at the ready. From the EVF, you can see the hood but it's not a big deal, I kind of like it. I was going back and forth about buying this hood or the Fuji one, I made the right choice!

              Excellent Hood

              By Fuji_Nikon_Guy

              from Connecticut

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

              I purchased this hood and ring along with an X100T. It fits the camera perfectly, is of excellent quality and has a finish which very closely if not perfectly matches the finish of the camera. You really have to look very closely to see any perceived, slight, subtle difference in finish if it's there at all. It is very good. The adapter ring threads on snugly without issue and the hood itself attaches via bayonet with tight positive action.

              The adapter ring has threads to mount filters to and a pinch lens cap can be used too.

              All in all an excellent alternative to the original manufacturer hood.

                      Went for this model over the $$$ Fuji model. This is fine for what it does, and the silver is not too far off from the camera color. Easy to install and remove.

                      I could not be happier with this hood. It is medal and attached securely. The color and finish are slightly different from my X100T, but not by much. I highly recommend this.

                      Bought this instead of the pricier Fuji OEM hood/adaptor ring. This matches the finish of my camera perfectly and is of sturdy build and good finsih. I've bought some Vello products before (screen protectors, etc.) and found them to be very nice at a good price. If you're looking to save a few bucks I don't think you can go wrong with the stuff Vello makes.

                        Looks like it will last unless I lose it. In which case, I will buy again.

                            I use a lens shade for protecting the lens and of course shading it from unwanted stray light....this one does well here and there....and is also necessary to screw in 49 mm filters such as UV .
                            However it will vignette the viewing ( but to the picture) and can be disconcerting.
                            Its silver color does not bother me on my black X100T....can gaffer tape it .!
