Vello LH-66 overview

  • 1Description

The dedicated Vello LH-66F Lens Hood is specifically designed for use with Olympus's M.ZUIKO Digital ED 12-40mm f/2.8 PRO lens. It is primarily used to prevent unwanted stray light from entering the lens by extending and shading the end of it. A dedicated hood is crafted to perfectly suit the specific focal length of the lens it is designed for. Additionally, this hood features a non-glare matte finish on the interior surface to further prevent or limit lens flare. Also, since the end of the lens is extended, you get the added benefit of some extra protection from accidental impact.

This lens hood features a filter access panel that allows you to easily reach and adjust rotating filters without the need to remove the hood from the lens. The "petal" shape of this lens hood maximizes the amount of hood coverage for the minimum amount of weight and hood area. The bayonet mount is designed to also work in the reversed position, allowing the hood to be placed backwards over the lens for a more compact storage solution.

Designed to accommodate the exact angle of view of the camera's lens
Minimizes flare and ghosting by blocking out stray light
Protects your lens from accidental impact and the elements
Filter access panel can be removed for easy adjustment of rotating filters.

    Vello LH-66 reviews

    LH-66F Dedicated Lens Hood with Filter Access Panel is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good substitute for original Olympus Lens Hood This Lens Hood is a good substitute for the original Olympus. It is half the price and more functional with the removable insert which allows access for the rotation of a CPL. The Olympus Lens Hood is famous for popping of the lens and being lost.(many complaints on the Web) This Lens Hood is well made and seems to be an exact copy of the original with exception of the removable insert. It does not seem to be any more secure than the original. it takes very little pressure to release the lock button and may be as susceptible to popping off as the Olympus is. All things considered I would recommend this product over the Olympus for the price and added feature.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works fine I purchased the LH-66F to replace my original Olympus Hood which went missing at Yellowstone. It was the only alternative, as far as I could see. The original wasn't available on the Olympus site.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect replacement at half the price! Perfect replacement for the overpriced Olympus Lens Hood, which I lost within a week after getting my lens. I also greatly appreciate the filter access opening!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fine hood Works as a fine replacement for the Olympus original and at a fraction of the cost. The filter access panel is a nice touch.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far, so good I bought this lens hood after the one that came with the lens popped off when we were on vacation.� I was pleased to find that I had a choice and got this lens hood rather than the considerably more expensive (and easy to lose) Olympus one.� I haven't used it much yet.� It does fit as well as the one it replaces.� Other reviewers say it is just as likely to pop off.� That may be so, but at least I won't be out as much money if it does.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Much betterthan the original... I purchased this lens hood after losing the original lens hood from my Olympus 12-40 2.8 the first day I used it. (Did not know I lost it until, suddenly, it was not there.) This Vello lens hood attaches much more securely and is not prone to fall off.
