A must for the 17mm lens.

Nice, but...

Very nice lens hood. It is made of metal which makes it feel good to the touch, but it will scratch, and or dent if you are not careful. I guess I can see the benefit of a plastic hood now.

Works fine

This is a very high quality, well designed product that I am truly impressed with. Obviously the designers are or had input from real photographers. A joy to use and substantial enough for my Oly OM-1 with the 40-150mm Pro lens and then some. The case is included and is equally of high quality and utility. The CF-422 is probably a little light for stabilty in strong winds but it is a travel tripod after all. An easy '5 stars' from me.

A Well Designed and Portable Charger

I never unpack the OEM chargers that come with the cameras I purchase, because the charger and the industrial capacity plug/cord that comes with them are as big as the cameras themselves. When I order the camera, I order this Watson charger, and they have never let me down. To save even more weight and bulk when traveling, you could bring just one charger body and the battery specific faceplates for each battery type you travel with.

Nice but Pricey

OK, so Olympus continues to sell Pro/prosumer quality lenses without including a lens shade in the box. At least the ones they offer as a separate item are good quality and that is the case here. But that said, the high price of this hood in particular causes my rating to drop to a '3'.

looks great

looks like it finishes the looks of the 17mm lens, heavy metal, probably works, using a lens hood is part of the Lens.

A good lens hood

It's a well constructed lens hood. When I mounted it on my 17mm lens, I had to remove a small plastic ring on the lens that was in the way, but once mounted, the hood is secure. It tightens with a knob, which I put on the bottom. I also have the 12mm with the square lens hood, and by having a round lens hood on the 17, it makes it easier to identify and grab the lens out of my bag.
