          Comments about Sony LHP-1 Lens Hood:

          For the price I expected it to be made of a good metal like steel or brass. It's aluminum. It does the job and looks good but is severely overpriced. It's not better than a knockoff would be.

            Comments about Sony LHP-1 Lens Hood:

            This is a $[$] lens hood for the Sony RX1. There are no after market alternatives at the moment. I have experienced lens flare one time and feel I need the lens hood. In addition it does provide an additional level of protection for the lens. While I can't say enough good things about the RX1 the price of this lens hood chaps me. Its a necessary evil from Sony. I recommend it until a suitable aftermarket alternative becomes available.

                Comments about Sony LHP-1 Lens Hood:

                I like to have a lens hood to reduce lens flare, but more importantly so that I don't have to keep a lens cap on the camera. This is an expensive lens hood, but it bayonets on very solidly and like the camera is nicely made and finished, and suits the Zeiss optics. Nothing about this camera is cheap, especially the price.
