Does the job as expected. If you don't like the name branding on top you can mount the hood with the branding on the bottom for a cleaner look.

Great hood. I didn't compare to Fuji but I don't know how it could get any better.

Maybe not quite as good as Fujifilms OEM

Probably between 90 & 95% as good as the original at half the cost.

Better than Fuji's lens hood

Cosmetically it looks much better when fitted to XF16mm 1.4 although it makes X-Pro2 slightly less compact but still manageable. I had a little trouble fitting it on properly the first time, but once it's on securely I'm not worried about it becoming loose. The material feels premium (metal) and I wouldn't be able to tell if it's made by 3rd party. Overall, I'm very satisfied.

Perfectly Unnecessary, Perfectly Appreciated

This hood is an excellent accessory for one of my favorite Fuji XF lenses. It is well crafted; the metal is light, yet sturdy and fits snugly to the lens. As far as I have tested, you can fit at least one 67mm filter underneath (I am using a Tiffen 1/4 Black Pro Mist - I do not think I could fit two). While this hood is new to me, I've been using the 23mm 1.4 equivalent for over a year now with no issues and I'm certain this one will last me the life of the lens with the expected care and consideration. There really isn't a need to buy the Fujifilm version while this exists at such a nominal cost, although I completely understand there are those who would rather trust the original manufacturer. Make no mistake - Vello did an excellent job providing an affordable alternative with no sacrifice to the user. I'd be lying if I said I bought this for any other reason than it makes my kit look cooler. Sure, it may protect the front elements in the event of a spill/bump, but having broken a lens once before, I know that a hood makes little difference in the event of a spill so severe it could break your lens. This won't help you take better pictures, but hey, what's the harm in enjoying one's tools?
