    I happen to like the flared shape of this hood over the Olympus tulip type as it's easier for me to reach in to flip off the lenscap. The internal surface is adequately light baffling and the hood is nicely finished. I had to shave off the mounting flange very slightly to make it easier to twist onto the lens (I scrapped the edges lightly with a sharp knife). Now it goes on snugly but doesn't stick partway on.

    The lens hood does what it is designed to do, shade the lens from the sun. This one was deep enough so I could shoot closer to the direction of the sun. It could have been a bit wider so I could more easily reach in and adjust my circular polarizing filter. For that reason I gave it the 3 stars.

                  Apparently designed specifically for Olympus' 40-150mm lens, it fits well and does its job. A welcome mid-tier option in the cutthroat Zuiko 40-150mm f/4-5.6 ED lens hood market.

                      It works great, but the fit is finicky. I expect the Oly hood would have the same problem though.

                        This lens hood does a great job at doing what it was designed for, it keeps any glare from out-of-frame things away, and feels durable. It attaches easily and feels rigid when attached.

                              Hood doesn't fit all that great, either on the camera or stored position.
