question

What I'm really looking for is a lens hood for the Olympus 17mm f2.8 lens, not the the f1.8. Does anyone know if there is one for that lens?Thanks
Asked by: John
B&H has several 37mm screw-in lens hoods... the Heliopan 71037H would surely work, but I think I'd try the General Brand 37mm Collapsible Rubber Lens Hood first. 17mm field of view isn't all THAT wide, and the rubber hoods collapse if they cause vignetting, but will still provide some protection from off-axis light.

question

I've read that this hood attaches via a thumb screw -- Can it be reversed on the lens for easy storage and if so, is it securely attached in the reverse position or is the screw still required when it's in the reversed position?
Asked by: Siegfried R.
Yes. The hood can be reversed for the storage. The screw is used to secure the hood in the reverse position. Since the screw does not protrude beyond the outside diameter of the hood, it is not an issue. It can store comfortably in a snug fitting neoprene lens bag.

question

I have a 37mm filter on mine. How does the thumbscrew work? And why does it say 46mm screw in hood if the lens only accepts a 37mm filter????Thanks
Asked by: John
The thumbscrew works fine, the 46mm refers to the diameter of the front of the lens hood to allow it to not interfere with the filter.

question

What I am looking for is a full cap that I can put over the lens hood - not a cap for the lens. Can anyone suggest one that will fit the Olympus LH-48B?
Asked by: franklin M.
Hi Franklin, not quite sure what you're wanting here. If you are after a lenshood for the 17mm F1.8 lens, then the Olympus LH-48B is the one made for it. It reverses back onto the lens and stays there by tightening the screw - Olympus and Panasonic seem to both have this screw for some, but not all of their lenses. However by your question, it sounds like you're looking for a cover to put over the lens hood, why I can't fathom, so perhaps I've misunderstood your question. Anyway, hope this helps. Lyn, Australia
